51 – 66 of 66 Classroom Resources

  • Observations, Chemical Change, Chemical Change | Middle School, High School

    Lab: Corrosion in Motion

    In this lab, students will expose metal samples to various solutions and observe the amount of corrosion of a period of time.

  • Observations, Conservation of Mass, Chemical Change, Chemical Change | Middle School, High School

    Lab: Conservation of Mass

    In this lab, students perform three simple experiments, recording the mass of a substance before and after a reaction. They then explain how the law of conservation of mass was not violated, even if the mass changed.

  • Observations, Density, Density, Inferences, Chemical Change | Middle School, High School

    Demonstration: Comparing Gas Density

    In this demonstration, students will observe a reaction between baking soda and vinegar in the presence of a variety of different heights of lit candles. The initial environment has plenty of oxygen present in order to sustain the candle’s flame; however the reaction will produce carbon dioxide which will cause the lit candles to extinguish in order of height. Students will analyze and compare the presence of the gases in the container and make determinations about the densities of each.

  • Observations, Chemical Change, Balancing Equations | Middle School, High School

    Lab: Chemical Reactions & Equations

    In this lesson, students will observe a series of reactions, make observations, and then write balanced chemical equations to chemically describe what they observed.

  • Chemical Change, Reaction Rate, Catalysts, Balancing Equations, Percent Yield, Stoichiometry, Chemical Change, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements, Scientific Method, Error Analysis, Experimental Design, Error Analysis | High School

    Lesson Plan: Catalysis & Catalytic Converters

    In this lesson students will be introduced to catalysts while expanding their knowledge of chemical reactions and stoichiometry. They will first learn about catalytic converters and then be challenged to create the best “catalytic converter” of hydrogen peroxide to oxygen gas in an inquiry-based activity.

  • Observations, Physical Change, Chemical Change, Reversible Reactions | High School

    Lab: Breath Test

    In this lab, students investigate whether chemical reactions can happen only in one direction, or whether they can be "undone."

  • Renewable Energy, Interdisciplinary, Distillation, Chemical Change, Molecular Structure, Combustion, Stoichiometry, Chemical Change, Molecular Structure , Enthalpy | High School

    Lesson Plan: Biofuels of the Future

    In this lesson students will explore the world of automobile alternative energy sources through the study of biofuels. They will design and create an e-book that illustrates and explains one of the provided topics or an original idea approved by the teacher.

  • Physical Properties, Identifying an Unknown, Chemical Change, 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.

  • Concentration, Chemical Change, Chemical Change, Molarity, Balancing Equations, Stoichiometry, Limiting Reactant, Chemical Change, Titrations, Indicators, Measurements, Acid Base Reactions, Graphing, Error Analysis, Error Analysis, Equivalence Point | High School

    Lab: Acid-Base Mole Ratio

    In this lab, students study several concepts, including acid-base reactions, limiting reactants, and stoichiometry, by observing the contained reaction of acetic acid (diluted vinegar) with sodium hydrogen carbonate (baking soda) in an unconventional, cost effective titration.

  • Observations, Physical Properties, Physical Change, Chemical Change, Chemical Change, Exothermic & Endothermic, Temperature | Middle School, High School

    Lab: Observing a Chemical Reaction

    In this lab, students will practice making careful observations and measurements while witnessing a chemical change.

  • Observations, History, Chemical Change, Reduction, Redox Reaction, Oxidation | High School

    Demonstration: Nitric Acid Acts Upon Copper

    In this demonstration, students will hear a story about Ira Remsen and watch a demonstration that recreates her first experiment reacting nitric acid with a copper penny.

  • Observations, Chemical Change, Chemical Change, Reaction Rate, Le Châtelier's Principle, Limiting Reactant, Chemical Change, Indicators, Acid Base Reactions | High School

    Demonstration: Milk of Magnesia Magic

    In this demonstration, students will observe a color change in a milk of magnesia solution as vinegar is added.

  • Observations, Physical Properties, Inferences, Periodic Table, Identifying an Unknown, Chemical Change, 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.

  • Observations, Conservation of Matter, Conservation of Mass, Chemical Change, Balancing Equations, Conservation of Mass, Chemical Change, Matter, Conservation of Matter, Experimental Design, Predicting Products | High School

    Lab: Matter Matters

    In this lesson, students will investigate the Law of Conservation of Mass.

  • Observations, Physical Change, Conservation of Mass, Chemical Change, Conservation of Mass, Chemical Change, Measurements | Middle School, High School

    Lab: Mass & Change

    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.

  • Conservation of Matter, Precipitate, Conservation of Mass, Polyatomic Ions, Chemical Change, Balancing Equations, Conservation of Mass, Chemical Change, Conservation of Matter | Middle School, High School

    Activity: Simulation Activity: Balancing Chemical Equations
