Physical vs Chemical Changes Story

Are you teaching/reviewing the difference between physical vs chemical changes? NOVA has a lovely activity to give students much-needed practice with this topic. I used this story activity with students when I taught chemistry several years ago.

Students are given a story to read. They must identify all the changes that occur in the story and classify each as a physical change or a chemical change. The instructions ask students to use red/blue. I just had them make a key so they could use the highlighter colors of their choice.
