1 – 13 of 13 Classroom Resources

  • Reaction Rate, Reaction Rate, Catalysts, Order of Reaction , Activation Energy, Rate Constant, Rate Determining Step | High School

    Lesson Plan: Reaction Mechanisms

    In this lesson students explore reaction mechanisms and their connection to rate laws and energy profile graphs through a game, relay race, and finally a chemical demonstration.

  • Reaction Rate, Exothermic & Endothermic, Le Châtelier's Principle, Hess's Law, Activation Energy | High School

    Lab: Kinetics and Equilibrium

    In this lab, students will investigate the reaction of the hydrogen sulfite ion (HSO3-) and the iodate ion (IO3-) to determine the effect that changing concentration and temperature has on the reaction rate.

  • Reaction Rate, Reaction Rate | High School, Middle School

    Simulation: Investigating Reaction Rates

    In this simulation, students will have the opportunity to investigate several factors that can affect the initial rate of a chemical reaction. Students will have the opportunity to manipulate several variables including concentration, temperature, or surface area of the reactants as well as the addition of a catalyst during the simulation. These reaction rates will be compared to a controlled reaction. Students will interpret a simplified qualitative representation of the reaction as well as analyze corresponding data organized on a graph.

  • Reaction Rate, Reaction Rate, Chemical Change | High School, Middle School

    Demonstration: Comparing Rates of Reaction

    In this demonstration, students observe the effect of temperature, concentration, and particle size on the rate of a chemical reaction.

  • Reaction Rate, Reaction Rate, Catalysts, Combustion, Activation Energy | High School

    Demonstration: Rates of Reactions

    In this series of demonstrations, students will be introduced to factors that affect the rates of chemical reactions. They will observe and record their observations, while also describing the rate-influencing factor for each demonstration as well as evidence supporting whether or not the reaction rate was increased or decreased by the factor.

  • Reaction Rate, Redox Reaction, Chemical Change, Exothermic & Endothermic | High School

    Demonstration: Potassium Permanganate Demo

    In this demo, students witness two chemicals that take some time to react. The KMnO4 and glycerin come into contact and appear not to react, but then a flame results. This is an example of an exothermic redox reaction.

  • Reaction Rate, Order of Reaction | High School

    Lab: Kinetic Approach to Water Flow

    This lab uses the principles of chemical kinetics without using a chemical reaction. It’s an effective means to introduce the important relationship between concentration and time at an introductory level. Students will have the opportunity to analyze data and make important connections through graphing their data.

  • Reaction Rate | Middle School, High School

    Lab: Starch-Iodine Clock Reaction

    In this lab, students perform an iodine clock reaction to determine how concentration and temperature effect the reaction rate.

  • Reaction Rate, Combustion | High School

    Demonstration: Grain Elevator Explosion

    In this demonstration, students observe the combustion of lycopodium powder and discuss the effect of surface area on the reaction rate.

  • Observations, Reaction Rate, Reaction Rate, Chemical Change | High School, Elementary School, Middle School

    Demonstration: Simple Kinetics

    In this demonstration, students will see that different food dyes react with bleach at different rates.

  • Reaction Rate | Middle School, High School

    Lab: Reaction Rate

    In this lab, students will explore factors that effect reaction rate and develop a general statement that describes how the factors (temperature, particle size, and concentration) effect the rate based on experimental data. This is an inquiry-based activity.

  • Reaction Rate, Reaction Rate, Acid Base Reactions | High School, Middle School

    Lab: Plop, Fizz: How to Affect the Rate of a Chemical Reaction

    In this lesson, students will react Alka-Seltzer tablets with water. By varying the temperature of the water, particle size of the Alka-Seltzer, and concentration of the Alka-Seltzer they can see the effect on the rate and strength of the chemical reaction.

  • Reaction Rate, Catalysts | High School

    Lesson Plan: Catalysis & Catalytic Converters

    In this lesson students will be introduced to catalysts while expanding their knowledge of chemical reactions and stoichiometry. They will first learn about catalytic converters and then be challenged to create the best “catalytic converter” of hydrogen peroxide to oxygen gas in an inquiry-based activity.
