    Access is an AACT member benefit. Lab: Mass & Change

    In this lab, students will use unified particle pictures of solid, liquid, and gas to explain the law of conservation of mass after carrying out various experiments.

  • Physical Change, Mixtures, Observations | High School, Middle School

    Activity: Magic Bubble

    In this lesson, students will create and interpret particle diagrams that represent elements and compounds at the molecular level. They will also describe the process of dissolving and create particle diagrams that represent mixtures at the molecular level.

  • Chemical Change, Observations, Acids & Bases, Chemical Change, Mixtures | Elementary School, Middle School, High School

    Demonstration: Inflating a Balloon with Chemistry

    In this demonstration, the teacher will perform a reaction between acetic acid (vinegar) and sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) in order to inflate a balloon and to introduce the concept of a chemical reaction to students. Students will observe the reaction, and identify indicators of chemical change as well as discuss the different types of matter that are involved.

  • Density, Observations, Inferences, Mixtures, Mixtures | Middle School, High School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Demonstration: Density Tubes

    In this demonstration, students will have the opportunity to observe and analyze the density of a solution. Students will interpret their observations as they compare the density of the solution with plastic components.
