Classroom Resources: Gases
51 – 62 of 62 Classroom Resources
Density, Chemical Change, Density, Combustion, Chemical Change, Kinetic Molecular Theory | High School
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
In this lab, students will conduct a chemical reaction that will be used to launch a rocket.
