Classroom Resources: Organic Chemistry
51 – 57 of 57 Classroom Resources
Cracking, Chemical Change, Functional Groups, Combustion | High School
In this demo, students will witness a cracking reaction. They will verify the products by exposing the products to three side reactions.
Pharmaceuticals, Functional Groups, Identifying an Unknown, Chemical Properties, Observations | High School
In this lab, students will do some research about common over the counter drugs and then carry out some chemical tests to learn more about their composition. They will then identify an unknown drug sample.
Condensation, Chemical Change, Functional Groups, Lewis Structures | High School
In this lab, students will use Lewis structures to explain the mechanism of an organic condensation reaction between a carboxylic acid and an alcohol, also known as an esterification reaction.
Polymers, Polymers, Molecular Structure, Physical Properties | High School
In this activity, students will discover how the entanglement in cooked spaghetti depends on the length of the spaghetti strands and relate this discovery to polymeric materials.
Molecular Formula, Functional Groups, Molecular Structure, Saturated vs. Unsaturated, Molecular Structure , Oxidation | High School
Explore emergency lesson plans from ChemMatters magazine.
Molecular Structure, Molecular Structure , Interdisciplinary, Chemical Change, Distillation, Renewable Energy, Enthalpy, Stoichiometry, Chemical Change, Combustion | High School
In this lesson students will explore the world of automobile alternative energy sources through the study of biofuels. They will design and create an e-book that illustrates and explains one of the provided topics or an original idea approved by the teacher.
Molecular Formula, History, Functional Groups, Covalent Bonding, Molecular Structure | High School
In this activity, students read Penny Le Couteur and Jay Burreson’s book Napoleon’s Buttons: How 17 Molecules Changed History. They discuss the book in class and complete a written assignment based on the chemistry and history highlighted in the book.
