Access is an AACT member benefit. 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.

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

Access is an AACT member benefit. 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.

• Entropy, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Molecular Motion, Intermolecular Forces, Density, Volume | 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.

• Density, Density, Chemical Change, Observations, Inferences | High School, Middle School

Access is an AACT member benefit. Demonstration: Comparing Gas Density

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.

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

Access is an AACT member benefit. 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.
