    Lesson Plan: The Gas Laws 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 the Gas Laws to your students.

    Lab: Greenhouse Gas Simulation

    In this lab, students will create two simulations of the Earth’s atmosphere. They will compare a control model with a one that has an increased presence of carbon dioxide gas in order to analyze how this effects temperature. They will also complete research in order to learn more about the makeup of the Earth’s atmosphere.

  • Gas Laws | High School

    Lesson Plan: Gases Unit Plan

    In this lesson, students will investigate gases similar to how scientists learned about them “back in the day.” Students begin by investigating gas behavior, then they investigate gas density and use this to interpret Avogadro’s hypothesis that gases under the same conditions combine in simple whole number ratios.

  • Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Molecular Motion, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Intermolecular Forces, Volume | High School

    Lab: Gas Pressure

    In this lab, students will understand what causes pressure in a container and the variables that affect pressure (volume, temperature, number of moles) by mimicking molecular motion of gases.

  • Gas Laws | Middle School, High School

    Simulation: Simulation Activity: Gas Laws

    In this simulation, students will investigate three of the fundamental gas laws, including Boyle’s Law, Charles’ Law and Gay-Lussac’s Law. Students will have the opportunity to visually examine the effect of changing the associated variables of pressure, volume, or temperature in each situation. Also, students will analyze the gas samples at the particle level as well as manipulate quantitative data in each scenario. Finally students will interpret trends in the data by examining the graph associated with each of the gas laws. This lesson accompanies the simulation from the November 2015 issue of Chemistry Solutions.

  • Gas Laws, Rate of Effusion | High School

    Activity: Gas Laws

    In this activity, students will examine gas laws by carrying out several computer simulations.

  • Gas Laws, Pressure, Kinetic Molecular Theory | Middle School, High School

    Simulation: Gas Law Variables

    In this simulation, students investigate variables of a gas. From the computer models, they can see how pressure, temperature, and volume effect gas behavior.

  • Density | High School

    Lab: Gas Density and Relative Molecular Mass

    In this lab, students will quantitatively determine the densities of four gases.

  • Density, Chemical Change, Density, Chemical Change | High School, Middle School, Elementary School

    Demonstration: Fire Extinguisher

    In this demonstration, students will observe a chemical reaction, and see how the product can be used to extinguish a fire.

  • Chemical Change, Pressure, Conservation of Matter, Reaction Rate, Acid Base Reactions, Chemical Change | Middle School, Elementary School

    Lab: Rocket Challenge

    In this lab, students will have the opportunity to construct a rocket, with the challenges of both designing it and preparing a chemical reaction for its “fuel” in order to propel the rocket over the furthest distance. Students will investigate available materials, quantities and ratios during allotted planning and testing phases. Student will record their plans, modifications and designs during the process. The lab will culminate with a competition amongst students to see whose rocket will travel the longest distance.

  • Gas Laws, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Ideal Gas | High School

    Lab: Finding Absolute Zero

    In this lab, students will experimentally determine the value for absolute zero in degrees Celsius.

  • Gas Laws | High School

    Lab: Exploring Gases

    In this lab, students will investigate the relationship between the variables of temperature, volume and pressure. Students will engage in three lab station activities that each demonstrate a particular gas law. Students will interpret the results, graph data points and relate given data sets to each of the three gas laws.

  • Density, Density | Middle School, High School

    Demonstration: Qualitative Look at Gas Density

    In this demo, students witness three types of gases and observe their relative densities to air.

  • Observations, Density, Temperature, Gas Laws, Density, Pressure, Measurements, Matter, Volume, Graphing | High School

    Lab: Pressure Bottle

    In this lab, students determine the relationship between volume and pressure of a gas and its temperature and address the common misconception that air does not have mass or density.

  • Renewable Energy, Pressure, Conservation of Mass, Chemical Change, Volume | High School, Middle School

    Lab: Power That Stinks

    In this lab, students will experiment with creating and capturing biogas, and have an opportunity to look at how energy is created from waste. They will explore the differences between non-renewable and renewable energy sources.

  • Gas Laws | Middle School, Elementary School, High School

    Demonstration: Egg-citing Gas Laws

    In this demonstration, students will observe how changing the temperature of a gas will affect the pressure of the gas through an engaging demonstration using a heat source, water vapor and a hard-boiled egg.

    Demonstration: Crush the Can

    In this demonstration, students will analyze how the change in temperature of a gas can affect the pressure and volume of the gas. Students will watch an engaging demonstration involving a heat source, water vapor and an empty soda can.

  • Molecular Motion, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Entropy, Intermolecular Forces | High School

    Activity: Connecting States to Entropy

    In this activity, students use blocks to model different states of matter and the Kinetic Molecular Theory to understand the concept of entropy. This is a concept mandated by SAT level or AP level high school chemistry class.

    In this demonstration, students will observe a reaction between baking soda and vinegar in the presence of a variety of different heights of lit candles. The initial environment has plenty of oxygen present in order to sustain the candle’s flame; however the reaction will produce carbon dioxide which will cause the lit candles to extinguish in order of height. Students will analyze and compare the presence of the gases in the container and make determinations about the densities of each.
