Classroom Resources: Reactions & Stoichiometry
1 – 4 of 4 Classroom Resources
Interdisciplinary, Photosynthesis | Elementary School
In this activity, students will become familiar with the chemistry components of photosynthesis. They will use role-play and/or demonstrations to describe the purpose of photosynthesis in this activity.
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.
Combustion, Heat, Exothermic & Endothermic, Heat of Combustion | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
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 | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
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.
