Classroom Resources: Reactions & Stoichiometry
1 – 6 of 6 Classroom Resources
Observations, Separating Mixtures, Physical Properties, Conservation of Matter | Elementary School
In this lesson the students will become familiar with some ways that chemistry is present in their everyday lives. The teacher will read a book and show a short video about how a plastic bottle is made. Following these activities, students will interact with a variety of materials made of plastic, ultimately organizing them according to the recycling code printed on the bottom of each or by physical properties. Finally students will collect data and have an opportunity to construct a graph based on their data.
Renewable Energy, Interdisciplinary, Conservation of Matter, Matter | Elementary School
In this lab students will explore ways to conserve natural resources. They will then have the opportunity to create their own recycled paper that can be used in the classroom.
Phase Changes, Conservation of Matter, Polymers, Chemical Change | Elementary School
In this lesson, students explore the science behind chemical reactions as well as the processes used by chemical engineering principles to develop new materials. The idea that mixing two substances can result in an explosion, the release of gas, and the formation of an entirely new substance is both fascinating and mysterious to most young students.
Chemical Change, Pressure, Conservation of Matter, Reaction Rate, Acid Base Reactions, Chemical Change | Elementary School, Middle 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.
Pressure, Conservation of Matter | Elementary School
In this lab, students will conduct a chemical reaction that will be used to launch a rocket.
Elements, Interdisciplinary, Molecular Formula, Conservation of Mass, Conservation of Matter, Molecular Structure, Balancing Equations, Reversible Reactions, Chemical Change, Matter, Photosynthesis, Monomer | Elementary School
In this lesson, students will explore a simple, but key, biochemical reaction: photosynthesis.
