26 – 38 of 38 Classroom Resources

  • Observations, Physical Properties, Elements, Periodic Table, Identifying an Unknown, Matter, Chemical Properties | Middle School, High School

    Lab: Periodic Table Trends

    In this lesson, students will investigate trends of the periodic table.

  • Observations, Identifying an Unknown, Pharmaceuticals, Functional Groups, Chemical Properties | High School

    Lab: Over the Counter Drugs

    In this lab, students will do some research about common over the counter drugs and then carry out some chemical tests to learn more about their composition. They will then identify an unknown drug sample.

  • Observations, Density, Inferences, Identifying an Unknown, Measurements, Scientific Method, Error Analysis | High School

    Lab: Colors of the Rainbow

    In this lab, students will practice density calculations and put their calculations to test by creating their own density column.

  • Interdisciplinary, Atomic Spectra, Identifying an Unknown, Emission Spectrum, Electromagnetic Spectrum, Emission Spectrum | Middle School, High School

    Lab: Build a Spectroscope

    In this lab, the students will make and use a spectroscope to identify the spectra within various types of light bulbs. The students will then develop an improved design for the spectroscope.

  • Physical Properties, Chemical Change, Identifying an Unknown, Chemical Change, Scientific Method, Chemical Properties, Experimental Design | Middle School, High School

    Lab: As Easy as Pie

    In this lab, students will use chemical and physical properties to identify an unknown powder.

  • Identifying an Unknown, Net Ionic Equation, Stoichiometry, Percent Composition, Molar Mass, Error Analysis | High School

    Lab: Analysis of Carbonate Compounds

    In this lab, students identify three unknown substances by measuring the amount of product (CO2) produced by a reaction with hydrochloric acid.

  • Observations, Chemical Change, Physical Change, Inferences, Physical Change, Identifying an Unknown, Solute & Solvent | Elementary School

    Lesson Plan: Alien Invasion?

    In this lesson, students will explore both physical and chemical changes as they try to help the Department of Homeland Security analyze and identify materials found in a mysterious capsule. Students will examine and observe an unknown object (a frozen water balloon) as it changes (melts). They then mix combinations of everyday substances to observe chemical changes.

  • Introduction, Periodic Table, Identifying an Unknown | High School

    Activity: Aliens Activity

    In this activity, students organize alien cards into groups and periods following trends, similar to how the periodic table is put together.

  • Observations, Density, Temperature, Gas Laws, Density, Pressure, Physical Change, Identifying an Unknown, Molar Mass, Ideal Gas, Volume, Error Analysis | High School

    Lab: Molar Mass of Dry Ice

    In this lab, students will use gas laws to calculate the molar mass of dry ice and then use the information to identify the compound that makes up this substance.

  • Observations, Physical Properties, Chemical Change, Inferences, Periodic Table, Identifying an Unknown, Chemical Properties, Error Analysis | High School

    Lab: Metal, Non-Metal, or Metalloid

    In this lab, students will classify several samples of elements as metals, nonmetals, or metalloid based on their physical and chemical properties.

  • Physical Properties, Periodic Table, Identifying an Unknown, Atomic Radius, Ionization Energy, Electronegativity | High School

    Activity: Mendeleev's Periodic Table

    In this activity, students will use their knowledge of Periodic Trends to analyze and identify unknown elements and organize them correctly in the Periodic Table.

  • Periodic Table, Identifying an Unknown | High School

    Activity: Mendeleev's Cards

    In this activity, students learn about periodic trends by organizing cards and then determining the information on a missing card.

  • Introduction, Elements, Periodic Table, Identifying an Unknown | High School

    Activity: Make a Periodic Table

    In this activity students use imaginary elements to create a periodic table based on the known properties of those elements.
