Thanks for the kind comment.
Look for more items, including a specifically Christmas-themed (though algorithmic) aid to learning how to do stoichiometry. Not sure how it will translate into Norwegian, but perhaps your own creativity will find a way to make it work. I am slowly getting my entire stoichiometry unit of worksheets, labs (which are done), collaborative activities, and the Christmas-themed aid uploaded. I am working with the ChemEdX staff to get through some issues with uploading, formatting, and so on, so the work is going slowly. Eventually everything will be linked to a single article that describes the lesson plans I used for nearly 30 years. I hope you will enjoy them.
I hope that you and your students will have fun with this activity. I always promote it several days in advance by telling students that those who do the best will end up with only a small amount of salt, but those who do poorly will be obvious due to the "big ash-sh-sh-sh-sh-huh" that they have -- this takes advantage of the close correspondence in sound between the English word "ash" and the English word for a person's back side. Of course it generates smiles and a few snickers -- and a few more when students see a group that does leave a lot of burnt sugar ash. Again, not sure how that will translate, but we have fun with it.
