I buy this product every year for Halloween. We make 'Bloody handprints' or messages and learn the science concepts around the activity. My 7th graders LOVE it!

Absolutely perfect for the Cause/Effect lessons in my Concrete Comprehension Strategies book. My order arrived in a timely manner and I am please with the quality. It is a bit pricey, but I solved that by cutting the sheets in two.

Writing with electricity is my favorite demonstration - wet paper with salt water, place on metal sheet (aluminum foil), connect sheet to positive side of a voltage source (9V battery or wall wart), then write with a wire connected to the negative side of the battery or wall wart. The electrolysis reaction creates (tiny amounts) of hydrogen gas and lye at the negative electrode, raising the pH and turning the paper red.

Bloody Handprint!

What a great product for my Halloween Science unit! My students were absolutely amazed when I dipped my hand in "water" and the "blood" came oozing out of my hand after I slapped it on the goldenrod! Of course we eventually discussed the science behind it. What a hit! Thank you, EI!

I use the goldenrod paper to teacher/review the scientific method. I use it day one. The students have their first lab experience, a homework assignment and a name tag for their desk. I am hoping they will also get it in card stock.

If I could give this a 6 I would! I was almost out of this wonderful paper when I got your email that you had it again. This paper is perfect for teaching pH. I cut it into strips for my students so they can test to see which materials are acids or bases!

With the shipping and handling charges, import charges, and exchange on top of the listed price, each sheet amounts to 40 cents. Although pricey, it does work!

Work this demo in around Halloween time
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon May 30, 2012
Had this paper taped on the board for a few days before the demo so the students would be use to the paper being there...large beaker filled with a basic solution, lecturing and "accidentally" dropped something into the beaker...fished out the thing and let out a yelp, spun around and splashed "blood" on the paper...great fun!

Just like its supposed to work
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon May 19, 2012
While I searched and searched for cheap golden rod paper at the office supply stores (and was running the risk that it was not real goldenrod and would not work as an indicator)-- I was delighted to find it here at Educational Innovations. Save yourself the time and money-- just buy it here. Works just like it is supposed to work.

Magic Year Opener!
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon May 16, 2012
I started the first day of class last year by asking chemistry students to predict what would happen if they used clear, colorless 'ink' (looked like water) to write on the paper. Their predictions varied, but the reactions from students were unanimous when they tested their predictions: they were all wowed and excited!

NGSS

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.

Elementary Middle School High School

2-PS1-1

The student can use the Goldenrod Paper in an investigation to plan, and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties.

5-PS1-1

The student can use the Goldenrod Paper in an investigation to develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.

5-PS1-3

The student can use the Goldenrod Paper in an investigation to make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties.

MS-PS1-1

The student can use the Goldenrod Paper in an investigation to develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules and extended structures.

MS-PS1-4

The student can use the Goldenrod Paper in an investigation to Electrochemistry Kit to develop a model that products and describes changes in particle motion, temperature, and a state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed.

MS-ETS1-4

The student can use the Goldenrod Paper to develop a model to generate data for iterative testing and modification of a proposed object, tool, or process such that an optimal design can be achieved.

HS-PS1-1

The student can use the Goldenrod Paper in an investigation with the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of the electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms.

HS-PS1-3

The student can use the Goldenrod Paper to plan and conduct an investigation to gather evidence to compare the structure of substances at the bulk scale to infer the strength of electrical forces between particles.

HS-PS2-6

The student can use the Goldenrod Paper in an investigation to communicate scientific and technical information about why the molecular-level structure is important in the functioning of designed materials.

HS-PS3-5

The student can use the Goldenrod Paper in an investigation to develop and use a model of two objects interacting through electric fields to illustrate the forces between objects and the changes in energy of the objects due to the interaction.

HS-ETS1-2

The student can use the Goldenrod Paper in an investigation to design a solution by breaking it down into smaller, more manageable problems that can be solved through engineering.

Suggested Science Idea(s)

Color-changing goldenrod paper has always been made with a dye that, when exposed to a base, changes from bright yellow to blood red. The student can use the Goldenrod Paper in an investigation about acids and bases.

The Goldenrod Paper can be used as indicator paper. By applying bases and then acids, students can make observations and gather evidence. It will also produce inverse reactions, when an acid is applied to the red area of the paper.

The Goldenrod Paper is to be used with the Goldenrod Electrochemistry Kit. Goldenrod paper, salt water and a little electricity make a really stunning demonstration of electrochemistry Each sheet is useful for one lab. It can be dried and used again, but best results are with a fresh sheet.

Students are absolutely blown away year after year that a commercial product like this Goldenrod Paper has such 'magical properties'! Activities with the Goldenrod paper are amazing activity for Cause and Effect; Crosscutting Concepts.
