  • Indicators, pH | Middle School, High School

    Animation: The pH Scale Animation

    In this activity, students will be introduced to the fundamentals of the pH scale and how it is used to distinguish between acids and bases. They will be shown everyday examples of acids and bases and where they fall on the pH scale. The logarithmic nature of the pH scale is explained, and universal indicator is introduced as a way of identifying the pH of a substance. There is also a brief overview of the chemistry of acids and bases.

  • Le Châtelier's Principle, Equilibrium Constants | High School

    Activity: How do Pollutants Affect our Oceans?

    In this activity, students will use the simulation, Surface Ocean pH Levels, from the Chemistry in Context Simulation Suite to investigate the values related to ocean acidification and interpret systems with multiple equilibria.

  • Establishing Equilibrium, Equilibrium Constants, Reaction Quotient, Graphing | High School

    Activity: Shaking Dice to Model Equilibrium Principles

    In this activity, students work together in small groups using a variety of multi-sided dice to model the dynamic character of a chemical equilibrium. Students will collect, share and analyze data in order to understand that the rate of a chemical reaction depends on the concentration of reactants (and products) as modelled by the different sided dice.

  • Observations, Chemical Change, Acid Base Reactions, Balancing Equations, Activity Series, Chemical Change, Electron Transfer, Electrons, Predicting Products | High School

    Simulation: Metals In Aqueous Solutions

    In this activity, students will run simulated tests of various metals in aqueous solutions to determine the relative reactivity of these metals. A total of eight metals will be observed in various combinations with the corresponding metal nitrate solutions and hydrochloric acid. Students will interpret the data collected to construct an activity series of the elements used in this simulation.

  • Acid Base Reactions, Balancing Equations, Combustion, Classification of Reactions, Chemical Change | Middle School, High School

    Animation: Classifying Chemical Reactions Animation

    In this animation, students will learn about some of the ways to classify different types of chemical reactions. It covers synthesis (combination), decomposition, single replacement (single displacement), double replacement (double displacement), combustion, and acid-base neutralization reactions.

  • History, Acid Base Reactions, Acid & Base Theories, Strong vs Weak, pH | Middle School, High School

    Activity: What are Acids & Bases? Video Questions

    In this lesson, students will watch a video and answer questions about acids and bases. They will learn about characteristics of acids and bases, the pH scale, and the role of acids in biochemistry.

  • History, Acid & Base Theories, Strong vs Weak | Middle School, High School

    Activity: Acid & Base Guys Video Questions

    In this activity, students will watch a video about the history of acids and bases. They will learn about the evolution of these theories, from Lavoisier to Arrhenius, Bronsted-Lowry, and Lewis.

  • Buffers | High School

    Activity: What are Buffers?

    In this activity, students will complete a card sort that will allow them to understand what makes up a buffer solution and how it works to keep pH from changing.

  • History, Acid & Base Theories, Strong vs Weak | Middle School, High School

    Video: Acid & Base Guys Video

    This video tells the story of how the definition of acids and bases has evolved from Lavoisier, to Arrhenius, Bronsted-Lowry, and Lewis.

  • Renewable Energy, Radiation, Pros Cons of Nuclear Power, Combustion, Acid Rain, Radiation | High School

    Activity: Town Meeting

    In this activity, students will learn about acid rain, gas scrubbers, half-life, chain reactions, and other topics around electricity production through a debate on nuclear power.

  • Observations, Chemical Change, Interdisciplinary, Acid Base Reactions, Classification of Reactions, Chemical Change, Acid Rain, pH | High School

    Activity: Investigating Acid Rain

    In this activity, students will investigate the chemistry of acid rain through web based research. Students will also have the opportunity to observe the reaction between a common acid and a material in a week long simulation and relate their findings to the effects of acid rain.

  • Interdisciplinary, History, Acid Base Reactions, Acid & Base Theories, Acid Rain, pH | High School

    Project: Acid Base Creative Letter

    In this project, students will compare and contrast the properties of acids and bases and define pH.
