1 – 18 of 18 Classroom Resources

  • Balancing Equations, Combustion, Conservation of Mass, Classification of Reactions, Reversible Reactions, Chemical Change | High School

    Lesson Plan: Chemical Equations Unit Plan

    The AACT high school classroom resource library has everything you need to put together a unit plan for your classroom: lessons, activities, labs, projects, videos, simulations, and animations. We constructed a unit plan using AACT resources that is designed to teach Chemical Equations to your students.

  • Density, Lab Safety, Combustion | High School

    Demonstration: Density of Gases and Particle Diagrams

    In this demonstration, students will observe the teacher carry out two combustion reactions. First the teacher will burn a small sample of propane gas in a beaker. Next the teacher will burn a small sample of methane gas. Students will create particle diagrams in order support their explanation and model their observations as they improve their understanding of gas density.

  • Balancing Equations, Combustion, Stoichiometry, Classification of Reactions, Reversible Reactions | High School

    Demonstration: Firefighter or Fireball

    In this demonstration the teacher will complete two chemical reactions inside of separate balloons that each produces a gas. Students will observe and record data as the teacher attempts to ignite each balloon. This demonstration will help students better understand how to predict products, as well as familiarize them with double replacement and combustion reactions.

  • 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.

  • Balancing Equations, Combustion, Stoichiometry | High School

    Activity: Calculating Your Carbon Footprint

    In this lesson, students apply their knowledge of writing and balancing chemical equations and stoichiometry calculations to estimate their carbon footprint. Students are also asked to reflect on their carbon footprint and what it means.

  • Combustion, Heat, Exothermic & Endothermic, Heat of Combustion | High School, Middle School, Elementary School

    Video: The Internal Combustion Engine Video

    This video investigates both the mechanical and the chemical processes used in the internal combustion engine, as well as the history and evolution of the combustion engine.

  • Catalysts, Reduction, Combustion, Redox Reaction, Activation Energy, Oxidation | High School, Middle School, Elementary School

    Video: Catalytic Converters Video

    This video investigates the role of a catalytic converter and its corresponding chemical reactions within a vehicle. Students will learn about both oxidation and reduction reactions and how they, in combination with a catalyst, can impact the molecules released in a car’s exhaust.

  • Chemical Change, Combustion | High School

    Demonstration: Liquid and Gas Burning Comparison

    In this demo, students will witness the burning of a substance in its gas and in its liquid states. They will carry out the demonstrations themselves, and compare the results of the two reactions.

  • Combustion | High School

    Lab: Will O' The Wisp

    In this lesson, students witness a chemical reaction that involves various states of matter and can include a stoichiometric problem.

  • Combustion, Calorimetry | High School

    Lab: Less Than Zero

    Download this lab in which students will take investigate the endothermic reaction between baking soda and HCl.

  • Gas Laws, Catalysts, Combustion, Stoichiometry, Limiting Reactant, Activation Energy | High School

    Lab: Launching Rockets

    In this lab, students create a stoichiometric mixture of hydrogen and oxygen gases to launch a soda bottle rocket.

  • Pros Cons of Nuclear Power, Combustion, Acid Rain | High School

    Activity: Town Meeting

    In this activity, students will learn about acid rain, gas scrubbers, half-life, chain reactions, and other topics around electricity production through a debate on nuclear power.

  • Combustion, Calorimetry, Law of Conservation of Energy | High School

    Lab: How Much Energy is in Your Snack Food?

    In this lab, students will find the amount of heat energy stored in foods and compare heat calories with food calories.

  • Chemical Change, Catalysts, Acid Base Reactions, Combustion | High School

    Demonstration: Stop & Go Gases

    In this demonstration, students will witness the ability of carbon dioxide to extinguish a flame and oxygen to feed a flame.

  • 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.

  • Combustion, Heat of Combustion | High School

    Lesson Plan: Redesigning a Car for the Environment

    Chemland’s city public transportation board has requested the class to help them determine the direction the city should move towards in reducing the carbon footprint. Students will be divided into groups and will come up with proposals of how to reduce the carbon footprint from carbon dioxide released from vehicles. The groups will represent different ways to reduce the carbon footprint via an alternative fuel source or a new technology. They will debate their findings to determine the direction that the city council should move towards to reduce the carbon footprint.

  • Combustion, Heat of Combustion | High School

    Activity: Evaluating Fuels

    In this activity, students measure the heats of combustion of four fuels and compare them as potential replacements for gasoline.

  • Observations, Combustion | High School

    Lab: Observing a Candle

    In this lab, students accumulate observations of a candle including a look at the combustion reaction's reactants and products.
