Chemistry hopefuls experience four different types of chemical reactions: single displacement, double displacement, synthesis, and decomposition. They will apply identification tests to the products as well. While this is absolutely a comprehensive chemistry lab, it is also designed to address the Common Core initiative for science literacy. You will appreciate the ease in teaching the lesson due to the well-thought-out plans provided.
In this chemical reactions instructional activity, 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 explore basic chemical changes. In this basic chemistry lesson, students explore the difference between a mixture and a chemical reaction. Students begin by exploring different substances and their properties, then observe several chemical reactions, and finally build their own "film canister rocket" using baking soda and vinegar.
In this chemical reaction worksheet, learners are given the details of an experiment where sodium chloride and silver nitrate are mixed in a chemical reaction. Students answer nine questions about the chemical reaction, they determine the products made and write an equation for the reaction.
In this chemical reactions worksheet, students experiment with several different reactions and identify each as a single replacement, double replacement, synthesis, decomposition or combustion reaction. Students observe the changes in each reaction, balance 4 given equations and write a conclusion about their results.
Four lessons can be found in this chemistry resource. A pretest is provided, and then young chemists explore the law of conservation of mass in chemical reactions. Then they learn about the laws of definite and multiple proportions. In the end they practice writing and balancing equations. The lessons all consist simply of printed instruction, sample problems, and a few practice problems. There is also a post-test and answer key. Give the packet to your class to work through at home, and then have them come to class to put it all into practice!
Students investigate the reaction rate of iodine and soluble starch. In this rates of chemical reactions lesson plan, students study the effects of varying concentrations of reactants and varying temperatures of reactants on the reaction rate of iodine and soluble starch. Students plot their data on a graph and interpret their results.
Graphic organizers, photos, diagrams, and text bring the world of chemical reactions to life. By viewing this presentation, young chemists learn how to recognize when a chemical reaction has occurred, and how to balance chemical equations. Follow this comprehensive lesson with an actual laboratory exercise in recognizing chemical changes.
Eighth graders explore the four main types of chemical reactions. In this Chemistry lesson plan, 8th graders will be working together as a class to match their reactants with their products. They will also be looking at material online previously identified by the teacher.
Students study chemical reactions. In this chemical reactions lesson, students make glue using the given materials. Students then mix substances into water, predict what will happen, and then write down their observations. Students watch a PowerPoint about chemical reactions, repeat some experiments, and complete an analysis on what they've learned.
Budding chemists achieve a basic understanding of the role of heat in chemical reactions. An online worksheet gives learners instructions and questions to answer as they investigate the Chem4Kids website and perform a hands-on lab inquiry. Using calcium chloride and ammonium nitrate, both in water, they record the temperature every five minutes over a 30-minute span. You will appreciate the support you receive from this hot item!
