1 – 14 of 14 Classroom Resources

  • Temperature, Heat, Temperature | Middle School, Elementary School

    Demonstration: An Uplifting Experience

    In this demonstration, students will investigate what happens to air when it is heated.

  • Density, Temperature, Density, Molecular Motion | Elementary School

    Lab: Observing Density of Gases and Liquids

    Students will learn about and discuss the behavior of a gas using examples of convection and an optional teacher-led demonstration. Students will then participation in a lab where they will investigate water currents by observing the results of mixing colored warm water with room temperature water. The lab will be followed by a discussion about the molecular activity of the water mixture.

  • Temperature, Pressure | Middle School, Elementary School

    Demonstration: EGGsperiment

    In this demonstration, students will learn how temperature change affects air pressure, while observing an egg getting sucked into a bottle without being touched!

  • Temperature, Heat, Temperature | Elementary School

    Demonstration: Global Warming in a Jar

    In this demonstration students will learn about the cause and effects of global warming. Students will research about global warming, while also comparing it to a demonstration. This will help students to better understand the effects that temperature change can have on the planet.

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

    Demonstration: Candle Mystery

    In this demonstration, students will observe and analyze how the change in temperature of a gas can affect the volume of a gas.

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

    Video: Robert Boyle Video

    This video tells the story of Robert Boyle, a great chemist and discoverer of Boyle's Law, which describes the relationship between pressure and volume of a gas.

  • 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.

  • Pressure | Elementary School

    Demonstration: The Power of Air Pressure

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

  • 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.

  • 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 | 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
