Classroom Resources: Chemistry Basics
26 – 33 of 33 Classroom Resources
Observations, Phase Changes, Physical Change, Temperature | Middle School, Elementary School
In this lab, students will explore the process of condensation. Students will investigate how water vapor condenses, and then they will conduct a comparison test to see if cooling water vapor has an effect on the rate of condensation.
Separating Mixtures, Density, Mixtures, Chemical Change, Intermolecular Forces, Physical Change, Intermolecular Forces | Middle School
In this lab, students will consider and utilize various separation techniques to purify and reclaim used motor oil.
Solubility, Physical Change, Solute & Solvent | High School, Middle School
In this lab, students will prepare a solution to observe a physical change.
Observations, Chemical Change, Interdisciplinary, Physical Change, Reaction Rate, Reaction Rate, Chemical Change | Middle School
In this lab, students will explore the differences between erosion, weathering and chemical weathering. They will complete a lab experiment that simulates chemical weathering on 4 different types of rocks. They will also learn how to use the Mohs Hardness Test to analyze the results.
Observations, Chemical Change, Chemical Change, Acid, Interdisciplinary, Physical Change, Chemical Change | Middle School
In this lab, students will examine the physical and chemical changes that take place within a landfill by composting leftover fruits and vegetables from their lunches. They will also record pH and temperature measurements during the process.
Observations, Physical Properties, Chemical Change, Physical Change, Chemical Change, Temperature, Exothermic & Endothermic | Middle School, High School
In this lab, students will practice making careful observations and measurements while witnessing a chemical change.
Observations, Chemical Change, Physical Change, Conservation of Mass, Conservation of Mass, Chemical Change, Measurements | Middle School, High School
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.
Observations, Physical Change, Mixtures | Middle School, High School
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.
