"Having a Ball with Chemistry": More Things to Try  Thomas S. Kuntzleman, David Sellers, and Rachel Hoffmeyer
An activity is described in which students test the rebound properties of superballs, racquetballs, "happy" and "sad" balls at many temperatures. Students use the results to estimate the glass transition temperature of the elastic polymer that comprises each ball, a segue into the classic demonstration of shattering a racquetball that has been immersed in liquid nitrogen.

A Stickyometer  
Some substances are stickier than others. In this activity students investigate and measure the stickyness of various foods. They construct a device to help measure how sticky a substance is and then use it to evaluate three types of food.

Floating Squares (GCMP)  David M. Whisnant
Floating Squares: this is a resource in the collection "General Chemistry Multimedia Problems". In this problem we will coat a piece of notecard with graphite (from pencil lead). We then will float the piece in two beakers containing water and a second solvent. General Chemistry Multimedia Problems ask students questions about experiments they see presented using videos and images. The questions asked apply concepts from different parts of an introductory course, encouraging students to decompartmentalize the material.
