Classroom Resources: Chemistry Basics
26 – 38 of 38 Classroom Resources
Conservation of Mass, Observations, Inferences, Matter, Error Analysis | High School
In this lab, students perform seven different investigations in order to develop an understanding of conservation of mass.
Density, Matter, Physical Properties, Measurements | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
In this animation, students will visualize density on the particulate level. There are opportunities to make qualitative and quantitative comparisons between substances. **This video has no audio**
Elements, Model of the Atom, History, Introduction, Matter, Observations, Periodic Table, Culminating Project, Atoms | Middle School, High School
In this activity, students will learn about early chemistry discoveries through a textbook reading as well as from a cartoon.
Phase Changes, Physical Properties, Molecular Motion, Introduction, Matter | Elementary School
In this lesson, students will investigate particle behavior in different forms of matter: solid, liquid and gas. Students will have an opportunity to examine a model of the particles in the different states of matter and will also participate in a kinesthetic demonstration of matter. They will also learn what makes the states of matter different from one another when changing from one form to another.
Physical Properties, Observations, Matter | Elementary School
In this lab, students will investigate observable properties of matter. Students will use their knowledge of physical properties to create and separate mixtures of assorted buttons based on the characteristics of color, shape and number of holes.
Polarity, Physical Change, Intermolecular Forces, Intermolecular Forces, Physical Change, Matter | Middle School
In this lesson, students will investigate the properties of magic sand and learn about the concept of hydrophobic and hydrophilic molecules. It also introduced students to the field of nanotechnology.
Physical Properties, Introduction, Matter, Chemical Properties | Elementary School
In this activity, students will focus on the properties of matter and distinguish matter by their physical properties
Gas Laws, Matter, Density, Density, Temperature, Pressure, Volume, Graphing, Observations, Measurements | High School, Middle School
In this lab, students determine the relationship between volume and pressure of a gas and its temperature and address the common misconception that air does not have mass or density.
Conservation of Matter, Chemical Change, Photosynthesis, Balancing Equations, Reversible Reactions, Molecular Formula, Molecular Structure, Conservation of Mass, Interdisciplinary, Matter, Elements, Monomer | Elementary School
In this lesson, students will explore a simple, but key, biochemical reaction: photosynthesis.
Periodic Table, Elements, Matter, Physical Properties, Chemical Properties, Observations, Identifying an Unknown | High School, Middle School
In this lesson, students will investigate trends of the periodic table.
Melting Point, Elements, Matter, Density, Chemical Properties, Periodic Table, Inferences | Elementary School
In this lesson, students will make measurements, calculations, and inferences to help solve a mystery about the identity of an unknown metal.
Chemical Bond, Molecular Structure, Atoms, Elements, Matter, Interdisciplinary, Naming Compounds | Elementary School
In this lesson, students explore the structure of matter by designing, building, comparing, and evaluating models of a variety of simple molecules.
Conservation of Mass, Matter, Conservation of Matter, Conservation of Matter, Conservation of Mass, Balancing Equations, Chemical Change, Predicting Products, Experimental Design, Chemical Change, Observations | High School
In this lesson, students will investigate the Law of Conservation of Mass.
