1 – 9 of 9 Classroom Resources

  • Renewable Energy, Electricity, Reduction, Redox Reaction, Oxidation, Photosynthesis, Electron Transfer | High School

    Lesson Plan: Color Solar Power!

    In this lesson students will make a dye-sensitized solar cell (also known as DSC or Gratzel cell) using extracts from blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, red cabbage, strawberries, beetroot, spinach and dried hibiscus petals. Students will measure the voltage and the current of various light sources using the created solar cells and then compare the effectiveness of each.

  • Electricity, Reduction, Oxidation, Half Reactions, Cathode, Anode, Spontaneous Reactions , Electron Transfer | High School, Middle School

    Animation: Galvanic Cell Animation

    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**

  • Net Ionic Equation, Reduction, Redox Reaction, Galvanic Cells, Oxidation, Half Reactions, Cathode, Anode, Electron Transfer, Electrons, Error Analysis | High School

    Lab: Four-Way Galvanic Cell

    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.

  • Reduction, Redox Reaction, Galvanic Cells, Oxidation, Half Reactions, Cathode, Anode, Electron Transfer, Electrons | High School

    Lesson Plan: How Fuel Cells Work

    In this lesson students will investigate how fuel cells provide energy in modern cars. Students will have the opportunity to explore redox reactions, through both an online animation and a simulation in order to understand the potential of a fuel cell.

  • Reduction, Redox Reaction, Reduction Potentials, Galvanic Cells, Dimensional Analysis, Exothermic & Endothermic, Oxidation, Half Reactions, Cathode, Anode, Gibb's Free Energy , Spontaneous Reactions , Electron Transfer, Electrons, Spontaneous vs. Non-spontaneous Reactions, Spontaneous Reactions | High School

    Lesson Plan: How Far Can We Go?

    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.

  • Observations, Chemical Change, Redox Reaction, Scientific Method, Electron Transfer, Experimental Design | Middle School, High School

    Lab: Test Tube Geology

    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, Reduction, Activity Series, Redox Reaction, Reduction Potentials, Oxidation, Electron Transfer, Electrons | High School

    Lab: Reactivity & Electrochemistry

    In this lab, students will relate cell potential to the activity series.

  • Balancing Equations, Reduction, Electrolysis, Redox Reaction, Exothermic & Endothermic, Oxidation, Half Reactions, Cathode, Anode, Electron Transfer | High School

    Lab: Electrolysis of Water

    In this lab, students will perform the electrolysis of water using a battery, test tubes, thumbtacks, and a plastic cup.

  • Observations, Chemical Change, Reduction, Activity Series, Redox Reaction, Galvanic Cells, Chemical Change, Oxidation, Half Reactions, Electron Transfer, Electrons | High School

    Lesson Plan: Exploring Automotive Corrosion

    In this lesson students will investigate the galvanic corrosion that can occur when different metals come in contact with each other in modern cars.
