Air- It's Really There!

Air- It's Really There!

Rating
4.0 stars

In this activity, students investigate the concept that air takes up space by experimenting with a tub full of water and an empty cup. Students turn the cup upside down and lower it into the water so that they can observe what happens. Students also try this with a crushed paper towel inside the cup to illustrate that the air prevents water from entering the cup.

Controlling the Amount of Products in a Chemical Reaction: Lesson Plan

Controlling the Amount of Products in a Chemical Reaction: Lesson Plan

Rating
0.0 stars

Students will analyze the chemical equation for the reaction between vinegar and baking soda. They will make the connection between the written chemical equation, the molecular model and the real substances in the chemical reaction. Students will see that the gas produced in the actual reaction is also written in the products of the equation. Students will also change the amount of one or more reactants and see how the change affects the amount of products. Included with, and linked into, this lesson plan are a student activity sheet, a reactants image, a products image, an image showing mass is conserved, a Controlling the Amount of Products formed image as well as an answer key for the student activity sheet.

Density of Water: Lesson Plan

Density of Water: Lesson Plan

Rating
0.0 stars

Students measure the volume and mass of water to determine its density. Then they measure the mass of different volumes of water and discover that the density is always the same. Students make a graph of the relationship between the volume and the mass of water.

Does Temperature Affect Dissolving?

Does Temperature Affect Dissolving?

Rating
0.0 stars

Students will explore solubility by designing an experiment to see if temperature affects the amount of dissolving of the sugar coating of an M&M candy. Students will also examine and compare solubility graphs for salt, sugar, and potassium chloride. At the end of the activity, students should be able to explain, on the molecular level, why increasing temperature increases the rate of dissolving. Supplemental student reading material is also provided as part of this lesson.

Energy Changes in Chemical Reactions

Energy Changes in Chemical Reactions

Rating
5.0 stars

In this interactive lesson, students will conduct two chemical reactions. In the first, the temperature will go down (endothermic) and in the second, the temperature will go up (exothermic). Students will view an animation to review the concept that it takes energy to break bonds and that energy is released when new bonds are formed. Students will use this idea to explain why a reaction is either endothermic or exothermic. Linked into this lesson is a student activity sheet, a video on thermite reaction, a video on Nitrogen triodide reaction, a White Phosphorus Reaction video, a Methane Combustion Energy animation, an image showing a baking soda and calcium chloride reaction, an image showing a baking soda and vinegar reaction, both an endothermic and exothermic reaction animation as well as an answer sheet for the student activity sheet and teacher background information on exothermic and endothermic chemical reactions.

Exothermic, Endothermic, and Chemical Change Lab Investigation

Exothermic, Endothermic, and Chemical Change Lab Investigation

Rating
0.0 stars

Students classify chemical reactions as exothermic or endothermic. Next, students explore the relationship between an observed change in temperature and the classification of a change as chemical or physical. Students will explore energy changes during chemical reactions, heat of reaction, and the connection between energy changes and chemical changes.
