Displacement Reactions of Metals
Chemistry stars experiment with metals to observe reactivity with salt solutions. They test magnesium, zinc, iron, and copper by immersing them into different solutions and observing for changes. A separate set of data tables is provided, but learners are also instructed to copy the table into a lab journal.

Amazing metals: Nevada quarter reverse
Nevada's nickname is "The Silver State" and metal is what this lesson is all about. Pupils will make a T-chart to discuss the differences between metals and minerals, then write and explain the properties of metal. They will get into pairs to observe and analyze several objects, noting their luster, malleability, hardness, conductivity, and color.
