Classroom Resources: Chemistry Basics
51 – 55 of 55 Classroom Resources
Physical Properties, Mixtures, Molecular Structure, Mixtures | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
In this demonstration, the teacher will create a sequence of mixtures in a single test tube. Water, oil, food coloring and soap will be used in this demonstration to introduce the concepts of heterogeneous and homogeneous solutions as well as the idea of miscibility. Students will also have the opportunity to analyze the properties, such as surface tension of each component used.
Physical Properties, Chemical Change, Identifying an Unknown, Chemical Change, Scientific Method, Chemical Properties, Experimental Design | Middle School, High School
In this lab, students will use chemical and physical properties to identify an unknown powder.
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.
Physical Properties, Interdisciplinary, History, Periodic Table, Review, Culminating Project, Isotopes, Electron Configuration, Atomic Mass, Subatomic Particles, Chemical Properties | Middle School, High School
In this project, students will learn the importance of the elements in our lives. The students will research one chosen element and create a website, a digital comic strip, or a video to explain the important properties of the element as well as why the element is so important to our lives.
Density, Physical Properties, Temperature, Gas Laws, Density, Pressure, Molecular Motion, Ideal Gas, Volume | Middle School, High School
The simulation for the September 2015 issue allows students to investigate the effect of changing variables on both the volume and the density of a solid, a liquid, and a gas sample. Students will analyze the different states of matter at the particle level as well as quantitatively.
