26 – 42 of 42 Classroom Resources
Redox Reaction, Gibb's Free Energy , Spontaneous Reactions | High School
In this lesson students compare energy densities of lead acid and lithium ion batteries to understand the relationship between electrochemical cell potentials and utilization of stored chemical energy.
Reduction, Classification of Reactions, Organic Chemistry | High School
In this lab, students will carry out a reduction reaction in order to create a silver-plated test tube that can be used as a holiday ornament.
Reduction, Galvanic Cells, Oxidation, Half Reactions, Cathode, Anode | High School
In this lab, students will build a simple galvanic cell to measure cell potential and will compare their data to theoretical calculations. Students will become more familiar with cells during this opportunity to investigate and compare numerous electrochemistry reactions.
Atomic Spectra, Activity Series, Emission Spectrum, Electromagnetic Spectrum, Emission Spectrum, Ions | High School
In this lab, students will investigate the colors produced when several mixtures of metallic ions are placed in a flame.
Percent Yield, Redox Reaction | High School
In this lab, students reduce metal ores using an alternative apparatus to a traditional crucible.
Reduction, Classification of Reactions, Oxidation | High School
In this lab, students extract copper from copper carbonate using two different methods, and then determine which industrial method is most effective.
Activity Series | High School
In this lab, students will relate cell potential to the activity series.
Reduction, Reduction Potentials, Hess's Law, Electron Affinity, Gibb's Free Energy , Bond Energy | High School
In this activity, students will gain a deeper understanding of how quantitative chemical concepts relate to each other.
Activity Series, Redox Reaction, Chemical Change | High School
In this lesson students will investigate the galvanic corrosion that can occur when different metals come in contact with each other in modern cars.
Electricity, Electrostatic Forces, Subatomic Particles, Electrons, Electrons | High School
In this lab, students will better understand that opposite charges attract each other, and like charges repel.
Electrolysis | High School
In this lab, students will perform the electrolysis of water using a battery, test tubes, thumbtacks, and a plastic cup.
Electricity, Interdisciplinary, Atoms, Culminating Project, Electrons, Electrons | Middle School, Elementary School
In this activity, students will learn that the flow of electrons within a closed circuit make our lives easier. Students will construct a circuit quiz box that lights up when the correct question and answer are chosen.
Electricity, Energy & Thermodynamics, Subatomic Particles, Law of Conservation of Energy, Cathode, Anode, Electron Transfer, Electrons, Electrons | Middle School
In this lesson students will explore the chemical reaction that occurs within a lead-acid car battery and the role of the battery within a car prior to creating their own batteries.
Reduction, Oxidation | Middle School, Elementary School
In this animation, students will visualize electrons traveling through a galvanic cell. Copper and zinc are the chemicals depicted in the spontaneous reaction and the importance of the salt bridge is highlighted. **This video has no audio**
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.
Oxidation, Reduction, Redox Reaction, Chemical Change, Oxidation, Electron Transfer, Electrons | Middle School
In this lesson, students will explore the concept of oxidation of metals by creating designs on fabric or paper using rusty objects.
History, Redox Reaction | High School
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.
