Classroom Resources: Gases
1 – 10 of 10 Classroom Resources
Gas Laws, Pressure, History, Volume | High School, Middle School
In this activity, students will watch a video and answer questions about Robert Boyle. They will learn about his impact in chemistry, including Boyle’s Law which describes the relationship between pressure and volume of a gas.
Temperature, Pressure | Middle School, Elementary School
In this demonstration, students will learn how temperature change affects air pressure, while observing an egg getting sucked into a bottle without being touched!
Gas Laws, Pressure, History, Volume | High School, Middle School, Elementary School
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.
Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Volume | High School, Middle School
In this animation, students will visualize how volume, temperature, and quality of a gas are related. This is done qualitatively and quantitatively. **This video has no audio**
Gas Laws, Pressure, Kinetic Molecular Theory | Middle School, High School
In this simulation, students investigate variables of a gas. From the computer models, they can see how pressure, temperature, and volume effect gas behavior.
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.
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.
Sublimation, Chemical Change, Pressure, Phase Changes, Physical Change, Boiling Point, Chemical Change | Middle School
In this lesson, students will investigate how dry ice undergoes a phase change from solid to gas, skipping the liquid phase under normal temperature and pressure.
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, 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.
