Classroom Resources: Chemistry Basics
1 – 7 of 7 Classroom Resources
Observations, Mixtures, Inferences, Intermolecular Forces, Scientific Method | High School
In this lab, students will investigate the addition of detergent to a mixture of whole milk and food coloring. Students will attempt to explain the cause of their observations. Also, students will have the opportunity to manipulate the experiment and determine how other variables may impact the results.
Observations, Chemical Change, Inferences, Interdisciplinary, pH, Chemical Change | Elementary School
In this lesson, students will extract DNA from strawberries and analyze evidence to figure out who perpetrated a petty crime.
Observations, Introduction, Inferences | Middle School, High School
In this activity, students develop a theory based on evidence they collect from (fake) cancelled checks to come up with a story of how they are related.
Observations, Inferences, Scientific Method | High School, Middle School
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
In this lesson, students will observe a chemical change involving oxidation and reduction.
Observations, Chemical Change, Physical Change, Inferences, Physical Change, Identifying an Unknown, Solute & Solvent | Elementary School
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.
Density, Melting Point, Inferences, Elements, Periodic Table, Matter, Chemical Properties | Elementary School
In this lesson, students will make measurements, calculations, and inferences to help solve a mystery about the identity of an unknown metal.
