Vomit Lab!!!!

Incorporate writing, inquiry, reading, and collaboration into your classroom. We perform this lab at the end of the Organic Molecule Unit. Students test simulated vomit samples (it isn’t that bad…) for the presence of a common organic compound. Students are required to complete a write-up describing each compound’s structure, how they tested for the compounds, and the most likely food culprit.
