How to Speed Up Chemical Reactions (and Get a Date)
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.

Change in Temperature - Exothermic Reaction
Alone, or as part of the intended unit on chemical reactions, this activity allows learners to experience an exothermic reaction. Here, learners add calcium chloride to a baking soda solution and watch the temperature rise! They will also, as an added bonus, see carbon dioxide bubbles and calcium carbonate solid produced!

Chemical Equations and Reactions
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.

Heat Energy Released or Absorbed in Chemical Reactions
Chemistry whizzes test the change in water temperature produced by a burning candle and the change in acid temperature produced by magnesium metal. With these two laboratory activities they explore heat produced during chemical reactions. Design a worksheet with laboratory instructions and observation questions for individuals to complete during these basic, but foundational exercises.

Production of a Gas - Controlling a Chemical Reaction
Though the publisher designated this unit for use with third through eighth grades, this particular lesson would be best used with middle schoolers due to the specific measurement skills required. Basically, they set up the reaction between vinegar and baking soda, but add detergent to make the gas bubbles last longer.

What is a Chemical Reaction?-Evidence of Change
In 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.

Substances And 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.

Chemistry Chemical 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.

If Molecules Were People...
By watching this droll and delightful animation, physical scientists consider what happens when molecules collide. In this film, however, parodic people bump into each other, exchanging limbs in the process, just as molecules might trade individual atoms!

Module 7 Revision Guide - Chemistry
Two versions of this handout are provided, the second with more detailed information on the same topics. Chemistry aces survey chemical reactions, heat energy transferred, and the action of enzymes by reading this resource. You can either give it to learners as a study guide, or keep it for your own use as a lecture guide.

The Transfer of Energy 1: Thermochemistry
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.

Chemical Formulas for Molecules
Newcomers to chemistry compare hydrogen peroxide to water, realizing that the difference of one oxygen atom significantly affects the chemical properties. Other pairs of compounds and their formulas are also examined. A few chemical reactions are set up to help learners identify evidence of a chemical reaction and understand the conservation of mass.
