Students identify the physical and chemical properties and explore the differences. In physical and chemical property lesson students test polymers for the differences between the physical and chemical properties, record their observations and orally, and in writing communicate their results.
For this chemical reactions worksheet, students experiment with hydrochloric acid and copper (I) chloride to identify the types of reactions they undergo with various other substances. They also observe the law of conservation of mass and record their observations of chemical reactions.
Students use the scientific method to determine physical and chemical properties of unknown substances. In this scientific method lesson plan, students discuss chemical and physical properties of substances as a class after a demonstration using a mystery box and mystery powder. Students are given 10 substances to observe. They mix each with 3 different liquids, they test their electrical conductivity and they observe the effects of heating the substances.
High schoolers investigate the properties of elements and periodicity. In this periodicity lesson plan, students observe a bag of 'elements' which are different fruits and classify them in groups and periods, show the periodic relationships and show their similar physical and chemical properties. They use spectrum tubes and diffraction gratings to differentiate between elements, identify their atomic masses and show how the arrangement in the periodic table was determined.
This lab activity is geared toward experienced chemistry learners, in particular, those who are familiar with organic chemistry. They will create a synthetic elastomer and then make observations and measurements of its different properties. Place this into your curriculum when teaching about polymers.
Students investigate chemical reactions and observe changes in matter. In this matter and chemical reactions lesson plan, students observe the reaction between vinegar and iron and a burning match. They answer 4 questions about the chemical properties of matter and the chemical reactions they observed.
Engage your physical science class with an exciting investigation on the rate of reactions! Introducing molecular motion, energy changes, and the breaking or forming of chemical bonds. Explain that temperature, surface area, concentration, and catalysts affect reaction rates. Finally, reinforce the concepts by having small groups test one of the factors on the effervescence of antacid tablets and the combination of vinegar with baking soda. This is a comprehensive and well-written resource.
Sixth graders complete several experiments about chemical and physical changes. In this physical and chemical science lesson plan, 6th graders complete 6 experiments about chemical and physical changes. Students examine the processes of chemical properties and change, separating mixtures, photosynthesis, transpiration, and the water cycle.
