Classroom Resources: Electrochemistry
1 – 6 of 6 Classroom Resources
Electron Transfer, Electrons, Electricity, Model of the Atom, Atoms, Subatomic Particles, Electrons, Observations | Middle School, High School
In this lesson, students will complete a series of activities to explore how the imbalance of charges in materials creates static electricity and how those materials interact with others around them. They will describe the relationship between atomic structure, specifically the role of protons and electrons, and static electricity.
Redox Reaction, Electron Transfer, Chemical Change, Observations, Experimental Design, Scientific Method | High School, Middle School
In this lab, students will observe a reaction between an iron nail and copper(II) sulfate in a test tube over the course of several days, modeling how a similar reaction occurs to form copper deposits in the earth. Students will also modify the procedures to evaluate how changing a factor of their choice affects the results of the test tube reaction, introducing them to concepts of experimental design. It also introduces students to my version of the Science Writing Heuristic (SWH).
Electricity, Energy & Thermodynamics, Law of Conservation of Energy, Anode, Cathode, Electron Transfer, Electrons, Subatomic Particles, 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, Anode, Cathode, Half Reactions, Electron Transfer, Spontaneous Reactions , Electricity | Middle School, High 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**
Chemical Change, Classification of Reactions, Oxidation, Reduction, Redox Reaction, Electrons, Electron Transfer, Ions, Observations, Inferences, Chemical Change | Middle School
In this lesson, students will observe a chemical change involving oxidation and reduction.
Oxidation, Chemical Change, Oxidation, Reduction, Redox Reaction, Electrons, Electron Transfer | Middle School
In this lesson, students will explore the concept of oxidation of metals by creating designs on fabric or paper using rusty objects.
