    Lesson Plan: Chemistry Basics Unit Plan

    The AACT High School Classroom Resource library and multimedia collection has everything you need to put together a unit plan for your classroom: lessons, activities, labs, projects, videos, simulations, and animations. We searched through our resource library and constructed a unit plan for introducing the basic chemistry concepts to students: Laboratory Safety, Equipment, and Reports, Periodic Table Basics, Physical and Chemical Properties and Changes, Endothermic and Exothermic Changes, and Classification of Matter. These topics are very important for your students to master before they dig into other chemistry concepts. This unit is designed to be used at beginning of the school year.

  • Lab Safety | Middle School, High School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Activity: Hazard Symbols

    In this activity, students will familiarize themselves with common hazard symbols and their meaning.

  • Lab Safety, Introduction, Review | Middle School, High School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Activity: Laboratory Equipment Memory Game

    In this activity, students will play a modified version of the classic Memory Game in order to help them identify common laboratory equipment by name. This activity provides an opportunity for students to increase their familiarity with the laboratory equipment that they will be expected to properly use.

  • Lab Safety | High School, Elementary School, Middle School

    Activity: What Not to do in the Chemistry Lab

    In this activity, students will examine a cartoon of a chaotic chemistry laboratory and note the specific behaviors that are dangerous and unsafe in a chemistry laboratory setting. This activity provides an opportunity for teachers to introduce laboratory safety and best laboratory practices and discuss them with their students.

  • Density, Observations, Chemical Change, Lab Safety, Combustion | High School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Demonstration: Fish Tank Carbon Dioxide

    In this demonstration, students watch as a reaction between baking soda and vinegar produces carbon dioxide, which then causes lit candles to extinguish.

  • Lab Safety | High School, Middle School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Demonstration: Lab Safety

    In this demonstration, students discuss laboratory safety and observe corn starch being ignited.

  • Conservation of Mass, Conservation of Matter, Chemical Change, Classification of Reactions, Percent Yield, Balancing Equations, Error Analysis, Accuracy, Chemical Change, Chemical Properties, Conservation of Mass, Conservation of Matter, Observations, Separating Mixtures, Lab Safety | High School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Lab: Reactions of Copper

    In this lab, students will convert copper metal into different copper compounds and then back to copper to illustrate conservation of matter.

  • Lab Safety, Culminating Project, Interdisciplinary | High School, Middle School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Activity: Dangerous Goods Specialist

    In this activity, students will take on the role of a Dangerous Goods Specialist for a large chemical company. In this role, students will research a specific commercially available industrial chemical looking at both the properties of the compound as well as how can they safely ship the chemical to a buyer in a cost effective and timely manner.
