51 – 62 of 62 Classroom Resources

  • Density, Chemical Change, Density, Combustion, Chemical Change, Kinetic Molecular Theory | High School

    Demonstration: Liquid and Gas Burning Comparison

    In this demo, students will witness the burning of a substance in its gas and in its liquid states. They will carry out the demonstrations themselves, and compare the results of the two reactions.

  • Separating Mixtures, Physical Properties, Temperature, Sublimation, Gas Laws, Pressure, Phase Changes, Physical Change, Review, Distillation, Boiling Point, Volume, Mixtures | High School

    Activity: Physical Properties

    In this activity, students will play a game to review topics relating to physical properties of matter, including mixtures, states of matter, and gas laws. They will be prompted with questions in a PowerPoint and they will use white boards to communicate their answers.

  • 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.

  • Chemical Change, Gas Laws, Pressure, Acid & Base Theories, Indicators, Solubility Rules | Middle School

    Lesson Plan: Chemistry of Pop Rocks

    In this lesson, students will determine the pH of several liquids with litmus paper or a pH probe. Next, students will explore how pH affects the production of gas with Pop Rocks. Students will also investigate how Charles’ Law affects Pop Rocks. Finally, students will design their own experiment with Pop Rocks.

  • Temperature, Chemical Change, Interdisciplinary, History, Heat, Temperature | High School, Middle School

    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.

  • Pressure | Elementary School

    Demonstration: The Power of Air Pressure

    In this demonstration, students will learn to appreciate the power of air pressure.

  • Observations, Density, Chemical Change, Density, Combustion, Chemical Change | Middle School, Elementary School

    Demonstration: Investigating Gas Density

    In this demonstration, students will observe a reaction between baking soda and vinegar in the presence of a burning candle. 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 candle to extinguish. Students will analyze the outcome and compare the presence of the gases in the container and make determinations about the densities of each.

  • Gas Laws, Pressure, Volume | Elementary School

    Lab: The Growing Marshmallow

    In this lab, students will investigate the relationship between volume and pressure of a gas, using a plastic syringe and a marshmallow.

  • Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Volume | High School, Middle School, Elementary School

    Demonstration: Make the Water Rise!

    In this demonstration, students will observe the impact of temperature change on a gas through an engaging demonstration using simple household materials.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Pressure, Conservation of Matter | Elementary School

    Lab: Alka-Seltzer Rockets

    In this lab, students will conduct a chemical reaction that will be used to launch a rocket.
