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 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.
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.
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.
Tenth graders observe various chemical reactions in the lab. In this chemistry instructional activity, 10th graders list the indications that a chemical reaction took place. They give real life examples of reactions they see everyday.
In this chemistry unit activity, students study the energy involved in chemical reactions. They solve 7 exercise sections on chemical equations.
In this chemical reactions learning exercise, students compare endothermic and exothermic reactions, closed and open systems, and reactants and products. Students review physical and chemical changes and how to balance equations. This learning exercise has 9 matching, 16 fill in the blank, and 4 short answer questions.
In this chemical reaction worksheet, students 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, high schoolers 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.
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.
Twelfth graders recognize importance of chemical reactions in the body. They discuss the parts of a chemical reaction. They illustrate the similarities and differences between syntesis and decomposition reactions. They describe some relationships which exist between synthesis and decomposistion reactions.
In this writing chemical reactions learning exercise, learners 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.
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.
High schoolers 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.
Young scholars 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 worksheet, 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!
