1 – 5 of 5 Classroom Resources

  • Catalysts, Activation Energy, Molecular Geometry, Resonance, Order of Reaction , Lewis structures, Activation Energy, Energy Diagrams | High School

    Lesson Plan: The Downside to Catalysts - An Exploration of CFC's on the Ozone Layer

    In this lesson students will make observations of a colorful homogenous catalyst and intermediate in a reaction demonstration that will spark their interests. They will then work in teams to analyze graphs and data sets in order to make a real-world connection to AP topics in kinetics such as catalysts, intermediates and reaction mechanisms by exploring how CFCs work to break down the ozone layer. Students will also investigate and discuss this environmental issue.

  • Reaction Rate, Reaction Rate, Catalysts, Combustion, Activation Energy | High School

    Demonstration: Rates of Reactions

    In this series of demonstrations, students will be introduced to factors that affect the rates of chemical reactions. They will observe and record their observations, while also describing the rate-influencing factor for each demonstration as well as evidence supporting whether or not the reaction rate was increased or decreased by the factor.

  • Catalysts, Reduction, Combustion, Redox Reaction, Activation Energy, Oxidation | High School, Middle School, Elementary School

    Video: Catalytic Converters Video

    This video investigates the role of a catalytic converter and its corresponding chemical reactions within a vehicle. Students will learn about both oxidation and reduction reactions and how they, in combination with a catalyst, can impact the molecules released in a car’s exhaust.

  • Gas Laws, Catalysts, Combustion, Stoichiometry, Limiting Reactant, Activation Energy | High School

    Lab: Launching Rockets

    In this lab, students create a stoichiometric mixture of hydrogen and oxygen gases to launch a soda bottle rocket.

  • Activation Energy, Equilibrium Constants | High School

    Activity: Reversible Reactions Simulation

    In this activity, students will investigate how temperature, activation energy, initial amounts of products and reactants, and type of reaction (exo- or endothermic) effect the equilibrium position of a reaction using a simulation.
