1 – 15 of 15 Classroom Resources

• Le Châtelier's Principle, Establishing Equilibrium, Equilibrium Constants, Reaction Quotient | High School

Lesson Plan: Equilibrium Unit Plan

The AACT high school classroom resource library and multimedia collection has everything you need to put together a unit plan for your classroom: lessons, activities, labs, projects, videos, simulations, and animations. We constructed a unit plan using AACT resources that is designed to teach equilibrium to your students.

• Le Châtelier's Principle, Equilibrium Constants, Reaction Quotient | High School

Lesson Plan: Q, K, and Le Chatelier

In this lesson students practice applying Q vs K as an explanatory tool in a simulation and demonstration. In both activities, students will consider how a change in concentration of one species subsequently effects all the species as equilibrium is reestablished.

• Catalysts, Entropy, Equilibrium Constants, Enthalpy, Activation Energy, Energy Diagrams, Reaction Quotient, Spontaneous vs. Non-spontaneous Reactions | High School

Lesson Plan: Making Connections in Kinetics, Equilibrium and Thermochemistry

In this lesson students will understand the connections between the equilibrium constant (K) and the reaction quotient (Q) as well as how they determine the favorability of a reaction. Additionally students will be able to determine if a reaction is kinetically favored or thermodynamically favored.

• Le Châtelier's Principle, Equilibrium Constants | High School

Activity: Equilibrium in a Beaker

In this activity, students will model equilibrium reactions using plastic chips to represent atoms. The goal of the lesson is to connect the symbolic model of an equilibrium reaction to its particle model.

• Reaction Rate, Exothermic & Endothermic, Le Châtelier's Principle, Hess's Law, Activation Energy | High School

Lab: Kinetics and Equilibrium

In this lab, students will investigate the reaction of the hydrogen sulfite ion (HSO3-) and the iodate ion (IO3-) to determine the effect that changing concentration and temperature has on the reaction rate.

• Le Châtelier's Principle, Establishing Equilibrium, Equilibrium Constants, Reaction Quotient | High School

Lesson Plan: Discovering Equilibrium

In this lesson students manipulate sets of given conditions to discover what equilibrium is, and how the equilibrium is established from different starting conditions. Students then refer back to the activity as the foundation framework for the rest of Essential Knowledge 6.A, 6.B.1 and 6.B.2. This lesson focuses on both a qualitative and quantitative understanding of equilibrium.

• Le Châtelier's Principle, Establishing Equilibrium | High School

Simulation: Predicting Shifts in Equilibrium: Q vs K

<p>In this simulation, students will take a 15 question quiz. Each quiz question has two parts. The first part requires the student to calculate the value of the reaction quotient, Q. In the second portion of the question, the students will compare the value of Q to the equilibrium constant, K, and predict which way the reaction will shift to reach equilibrium. The simulation includes five different reactions which each have three scenarios: Q &gt; K, Q = K, and Q &lt; K.</p>

Activity: Simulation Activity: Predicting Shifts in Equilibrium: Q vs K

In this simulation, students will take a 15 question quiz. Each quiz questions has two parts. The first part requires the student to calculate the value of the reaction quotient, Q. In the second portion of the question, the students will compare the value of Q to the equilibrium constant, K, and predict which way the reaction will shift to reach equilibrium. The simulation includes five different reactions which each have three scenarios: Q > K, Q = K, and Q < K.

• Establishing Equilibrium | High School

Activity: Equilibrium Introduction

In this activity, students perform a hands-on activity that models chemical equilibrium based on the article Equilibrium: A Teaching/Learning Activity by Audrey H. Wilson from the Journal of Chemical Education, Vol. 75, No. 9, September 1998.

• Concentration, Reversible Reactions, Le Châtelier's Principle | High School

Lab: Le Chatelier’s Soda

In this lab, students will observe how the equilibrium of a chemical reaction is affected when a change in pressure, temperature, and concentration is applied to the system.

• Establishing Equilibrium | High School

Animation: Equilibrium Animation

In this animation, students will visualize equilibrium with the help of water and a piece of chalk (calcium carbonate). **This video has no audio**

• Le Châtelier's Principle, Establishing Equilibrium, Equilibrium Constants | High School

Demonstration: Le Châtelier’s Principle

In this demonstration, students will witness a system at equilibrium and apply different stresses to see how the equilibrium shifts.

• Heat, Temperature, Exothermic & Endothermic, Activation Energy, Le Châtelier's Principle, Establishing Equilibrium, Equilibrium Constants, Reaction Quotient | 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.

• Indicators, Le Châtelier's Principle | High School

Demonstration: Milk of Magnesia Magic

In this demonstration, students will observe a color change in a milk of magnesia solution as vinegar is added.

• Reaction Rate, Reversible Reactions, Le Châtelier's Principle, Establishing Equilibrium | High School

Lab: Dynamic Equilibrium Simulation

In this lab, students will explore equilibrium using paper clips to mimic a chemical reaction.
