Pottery and Chemistry

The grade 9 students visited Hintonburg Pottery twice in November to learn about pottery and chemistry. During the sessions, the students created a piece of pottery and then examined the chemistry behind the pottery. This field trip was planned to reinforce lessons on physical and chemical properties, the periodic table, ionic and covalent bonding and atomic structure. Who knew science could be this fun?
