A collection of 16 different chemistry crosswords provides variety in the ways that your class reviews chemistry vocabulary and concepts. Because the topics for each range from the introductory periodic table of elements to the complex energetics and kinetics, this resource is valuable to middle school and high school teachers alike. Each puzzle is comprehensive in coverage and has anywhere from 12 to 36 questions to answer. Add this to your library of review tools. US teachers, be aware that there are British spellings for some terms. In most cases, the US spelling requires the same number of letters as the British, so this shouldn't be a problem.
In this chemistry in action worksheet, students read about sulphuric acid, the use of metals, the production of titanium and the detection of chemical elements and compounds. Students are given 8 statements about what they should know about each of these topics such as what is the process in making sulphuric acid, how is steel produced and how are metals extracted from the earth.
In this chemistry worksheet, learners answer 50 multiple choice questions. They solve and write short answer questions to 35 other chemistry related problems.
In this chemistry worksheet, students answer 50 multiple choice questions and 31 other questions that require them to solve, calculate and write short answers.
After taking in background information on teeth, marble, eggshell, and fluoride, chemistry aces design an experiment. Their goal is to demonstrate whether or not fluoride has a similar effect on marble or eggshell as it does on tooth enamel. Although there are chemical reactions involved in the activity, the intent is to provide practice designing and revising a scientific inquiry. What makes this lesson stand out is the unique topic and the well-written instructor notes and student directions.
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. Either way, you will find it to be organized and applicable for a general chemistry course.
Students examine how and when rust and corrosion occur.  For this corrosion lesson students complete an experiment to see why metals rust. 
Only eight problems are on this competitive national chemistry exam. It required the balancing of chemical equations, solving stoichiometry questions, and more. This is part two of three of the national exam. Also available is a local pre-competition exam. All of these resources are well-written and neatly formatted tests that you can use in your general chemistry curriculum or as preparation practice for the National Chemistry Olympiad.
Students explore the different techniques used in forensic science. In this chemistry lesson, students investigate a fictional crime and identify the culprit. They create a brochure or collage career bulletin.
Students examine the observed world, molecular world, and the symbolic world of chemistry. They observe a demonstration of the conductivity of solutions, describe the properties of acids and bases, and predict the outcome of solution reactions.
Students examine the reasons why metal corrodes in regard to metal artifacts. In groups, they discover the affects of salt water on metal and compare the type of corrosion found on iron. They also research the types of metal preservation techniques to end the lesson.
Students define what a redox reaction is. In this chemistry instructional activity, students electroplate some wires in the lab. They research the application of electroplating in the real world.
Students conduct an experiment to observe oxidation. In this chemistry lesson, students explain how rusting happens. They rank metals according to their conductivity.
Students conduct a series of experiments on water electrolysis. In this chemistry lesson, students explain what happens to the molecules during the process. They cite real world applications of electrolysis.
General chemistry class members engage in a mini-unit on mole conversions. Through nine lab activites with varying degrees of difficulty, they practice measuring mass and volume, molar calculations, and stoichiometry. Terrific teacher notes give tips for mentoring minors through the lessons. Suggestions are made for options, community connections, and more. This is a comprehensive resource complete with lab sheets.
Students observe the rusting process in the lab. In this chemistry lesson plan, students rank metals according to their conductivity. They give real world applications of this activity.
If you use this as an outline for your chemistry lecture on metals, your young chemists will absorb a well-rounded overview. This is not a worksheet per se, but a useful summary of the behavior of metals. Save yourself some planning and typing time by using this relevant resource either for your own reference or as a handout when lecturing on metals. 
Students research certain elements and then analyze their potential bonds with other elements in a dating game where the dating pool is comprised of the elements featured on the Periodic Table.
Did you know that driving 2,500 miles results in an entire ton of carbon emissions added to the atmosphere? This tidbit and others on how carbon dioxide is also increasing in ocean water are the focus of a powerful lesson plan. Participants are introduced to ocean acidification with a video, and then they carry out two investigations  that will reveal the increasing pH of the world's oceans. This is a poignant lesson plan, perfect for encouraging youth to become environmentally aware citizens.
Testing the pH levels of household products and then experimenting with acids and bases sounds like the start of a great afternoon. Children discuss the properties of acids, how they taste, and what acids do. Then, they conduct several simple experiments where they see the powers of acids firsthand. They dissolve a penny, create a cabbage indicator, and see how bases neutralize acids. Full experiment procedures, background information, helpful websites, and a worksheet are all included.
