The Fun with Chemistry hands-on activities and demonstration volumes were created for K–12 teachers and use readily available, inexpensive materials. Each Activity includes complete instructions for preparation and presentation, a materials list, and an explanation, along with suggestions for appropriate grade levels, methods of presentation, and curriculum integration. The format enables teachers to easily incorporate these activities into their classes.

Each Fun with Chemistry guidebook is available for purchase individually or as a 2-volume set.

Volume 1 has 53 activities and demonstrations developed and extensively tested by teachers at all levels. Activities have been selected for pedagogical value, safety, and ease of presentation using readily available, inexpensive materials. Topics in Volume 1 include carbon dioxide, chemistry with foodstuffs, color changes, density, five and dime, and a section of more advanced activities.

Volume 2 continues the tradition of Volume 1 with 54 more activities that will delight students and teachers with surprising materials and seemingly paradoxical effects. This 300+ page book includes activities on polymers, chromatography, the chemistry of egg dyeing, crystal growing, and Cartesian divers, among others.
