In this chemical reactions learning exercise, 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 observe chemical reactions that produce obvious effects. They begin by exploring a different substance every day for one week. They compare the substances and examine how substances can be solids, liquids, or gases.
How are chemical reactions like dating? A collision must first occur! In this hilarious approach to speeding up chemical reactions, viewers find out that five changes can increase the rate of reaction: smaller space, increased number of particles, increased temperature (and therefore velocity), increased surface area, and adding a catalyst. Teens will thoroughly enjoy and learn from this feature! Because of its quick pace, you will want to review each concept in more detail, but this is a worthy introduction.
Learners explore basic chemical changes. In this basic chemistry instructional activity, students explore the difference between a mixture and a chemical reaction. Learners 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 chemistry unit activity, students study the energy involved in chemical reactions. They solve 7 exercise sections on chemical equations.
Tenth graders observe various chemical reactions in the lab. In this chemistry lesson, 10th graders list the indications that a chemical reaction took place. They give real life examples of reactions they see everyday.
In this chemical reaction activity, high schoolers 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.
Instruct your chemistry stars on the five different classes of chemical reactions with text, computer animation, and narrative. This video is short and to the point. Embed it into your PowerPoint or SmartBoard presentation when teaching the different types of reactions.
See a science experiment in action. These 9th graders explain what happens when a catalyst is introduced into a compound. They demonstrate their explanation by mixing baking soda, calcium chloride and phenol red. The chemical reaction breaks up the compound making the new substance warm and a different (fizzy) color.
Students conduct various labs to experiment with physical and chemical reactions. They also consider the 4 ways in which a reaction can be sped up (concentration, surface area, temperature and catalysts.) students conduct experiments on each method.
In this writing chemical reactions worksheet, students solve 15 problems on their own paper using a 3 step-problem solving approach. In addition, students write six balanced equations and classify each reaction. They also write equations in aqueous solutions.
Young scholars examine the different types of reactions and the products and reactants in them.  In this chemical reactions lesson students write and balance equations. 
Fifth graders, in groups, complete two activities in which various substances are combined, resulting in a very different substances. They discuss reactants and products and chemical reactions.
Fifth graders explore physical and chemical changes. They prepare a demonstration in which they perform an example of either a physical change or a chemical reaction.
Students use the scientific method to create and observe a chemical reaction. They observe and describe the physical properties of three substances, make a hypothesis, record the results, and explore various science websites.
In this science activity, students use basic scientific concepts to complete the series of puzzles that are intended to increase science literacy and one activity has one name the type of chemical reaction that is taking place.
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 perform several different experiments to observe signs of chemical reactions and determine if reaction has occurred, use search engine to find Internet sites pertaining to chemical reactions, and write up brief summary of site.
Eighth graders form groups of reactants and products found in some common chemical reactions. They research internet sites to find examples of chemical reactions. They illustrate each type using clip art.
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.
