76 – 85 of 85 Classroom Resources

  • Observations, Inferences, Scientific Method | High School, Middle School

    Activity: Black Box

    In this activity, students will experience how scientists carry out a scientific investigation through inquiry.

  • Observations, Chemical Change, Inferences, Reduction, Redox Reaction, Classification of Reactions, Chemical Change, Oxidation, Electron Transfer, Electrons, Ions | Middle School

    Lesson Plan: One Tube Reaction

    In this lesson, students will observe a chemical change involving oxidation and reduction.

  • Observations, Density, Mixtures, Chemical Change, Chemical Change, Physical Change, Acid Base Reactions, Mixture | Elementary School

    Lab: Analyzing a Lava Lamp

    In this lab, students create a mixture of oil, water and food coloring, and then add an Alka-Seltzer tablet, to create a homemade lava lamp. Student will record their observations during each step of the process and answer follow-up questions about the chemical and physical changes that took place.

  • 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.

  • Observations | High School

    Lab: Airplanes

    In this lab, students will design a procedure to test for the intended outcome of a longest flight.

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

    Lab: Observing a Chemical Reaction

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

  • Observations, Phase Changes, Combustion | High School

    Lab: Observing a Candle

    In this lab, students accumulate observations of a candle including a look at the combustion reaction's reactants and products.

  • Observations | High School

    Demonstration: Observations vs. Inferences

    In this demonstration, students will learn the the difference between observation and inferences.

  • Observations, Chemical Change, Chemical Change, Acid, Chemical Change | Elementary School

    Lab: My Pennies

    In this lab, students will investigate how an acidic, vinegar based solution can help to get “dirty” pennies clean. Students will observe chemical change and investigate real-world connections to this lab.

  • Observations, Chemical Change, Acids & Bases, Chemical Change, Mixture | High School, Middle School, Elementary School

    Demonstration: Inflating a Balloon with Chemistry

    In this demonstration, the teacher will perform a reaction between acetic acid (vinegar) and sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) in order to inflate a balloon and to introduce the concept of a chemical reaction to students. Students will observe the reaction, and identify indicators of chemical change as well as discuss the different types of matter that are involved.
