Solute & Solvent, Molarity, Tyndall Effect, Concentration, Stoichiometry, Dimensional Analysis, Mole Concept  High School
Activity: Solubility & Solutions
In this inquiry activity, students investigate types of solutions, identifying the solute and solvent, and classifying each solution. They them solve stoichiometry problems involving solutions of different concentrations.

Balancing Equations, Limiting Reactant, Stoichiometry, Dimensional Analysis, Mole Concept, Measurements  High School
Activity: S'more Stoichiometry
In this activity, students determine the number of graham crackers and chocolate pieces required to complete a “reaction” with a given quantity of marshmallows (the limiting reactant). They then use the same thought process with a problem involving a real chemical reaction.

Chemical Change, Limiting Reactant, Classification of Reactions, Percent Yield, Stoichiometry, Concentration, Molarity, Mole Concept, Dimensional Analysis  High School
Demonstration: First Day Review
In this demonstration, students see evidence of a chemical reaction.

Molecular Formula, Stoichiometry, Law of Definite Proportions, Dimensional Analysis, Mole Concept, Classification of Reactions  High School
Lab: Finding the Formula of Magnesium Oxide
In this lab, students will recognize that oxygen has mass and that heating can involve and increase in mass as an element reacts to become an oxide

Limiting Reactant, Concentration, Net Ionic Equation, Stoichiometry, Balancing Equations, Precipitate, Mole Concept, Dimensional Analysis  High School
Lab: Finding CO_{2} Mass in your Breath
In this lab, students will measure how much carbon dioxide they exhale by reacting their exhaled breath with limewater (calcium hydroxide solution). Students will practice writing balanced equations and completing masstomass stoichiometric calculations.

Classification of Reactions, Oxidation, Reduction, Percent Yield, Stoichiometry, Chemical Change, Redox Reaction, Activity Series, Error Analysis, Dimensional Analysis, Mole Concept, Measurements  High School
Lab: Extracting Copper From Ore
In this lab, students extract copper from copper carbonate using two different methods, and then determine which industrial method is most effective.

Mole Concept  High School
Activity: Popcorn Counting Unit
In this activity, students develop a new method of counting objects, called the PCU, and compare this method to the concept of the mole.

Percent Composition, Percent Composition, Mole Concept, Dimensional Analysis  High School
Lab: Percent Composition of Bubble Gum
In this lab, students will be introduced to the concept of percent composition. Students will determine the amount of sweetener in various brands of gum by determining the mass difference of the gum before and after it is chewed.

Mole Concept, Measurements, Dimensional Analysis, Molar Mass  High School
Lab: Calculating Moles
In this lab, students will have the opportunity to practice conducting the chemist’s way of counting atoms and molecules by using the mole. They will determine the mass of various common elements and compounds and convert this data into values of moles, atoms and molecules. This will allow students to realize the connection between commonly used laboratory chemicals and the quantitative data and calculations that are such a fundamental part of chemistry.

Mole Concept, Significant Figures, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements, Scientific Notation, Molar Mass, Molecular Formula  High School
Activity: Can You Color A Mole?
In this activity, students determine how many moles of paraffin are used when they color a piece of paper as well as how many molecules and moles of wax are in one crayon.

Mole Concept, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements  High School
Activity: Bring Me A Mole
In this lab, students take an abstract concept, the mole, and turn it into a real measurable concept.

Chemical Change, Gas Laws, Stoichiometry, Balancing Equations, Volume, Dimensional Analysis, Mole Concept  High School
Project: Air Bag Stoichiometry
In this lab, students make realworld connections of stoichiometry with the design of car air bags.

Limiting Reactant, Acid Base Reactions, Stoichiometry, Indicators, pH, Dimensional Analysis, Mole Concept, Measurements, Concentration, Molarity  High School
Lab: Acid/Base Stoichiometry
In this lab, students experience a limiting reactant and can physically see the difference in amounts of product generated. They also see which reactant is in excess.

Mole Concept, Dimensional Analysis, Density  High School
Lab: Moles of Food
In this lab, students will analyze the nutrition label of a variety of foods to find the amount of specific elements in each serving. Students are asked to evaluate and compare the data in a series of questions, in order to convert the values to moles. This lab gives students the opportunity to see the connection between the chemistry mole concept and everyday foods.

Molarity, Concentration, Mixtures, Solute & Solvent, Dimensional Analysis, Mole Concept, Measurements  High School
Lab: Molarity of a Solution
In this lab, students calculate concentrations of and perform dilutions of KoolAid and juice solutions.

Mole Concept, Measurements, Dimensional Analysis  High School
Lesson Plan: Molar Marks
In this lesson, students will better understand the mole concept by using chalk to write their name on a sidewalk and finding out the composition of chalk through research.
