Eighth graders conduct experiments to determine the how sulfuric acid effects for different metals. They experiment with aluminum, zinc, magnesium, and copper using proper safety techniques for working with the acidic material. They complete a lab data collection sheet before completing the questions on the back of the sheet.
In this chemistry worksheet, learners determine the order of reactivity toward displacement in each of the series listed. Then they respond to several multiple choice questions as they relate to compounds and solutions. Students also identify various products from each of the sequence of reactions listed.
Demonstrate the importance of eye safety in the science laboratory! Acetone is sprayed on a bare, plastic-wrapped, and plastic-wrapped glasses-clad styrofoam plate to show the importance of protective clothing and eyewear. Phenolphthalein is mixed with sodium hydroxide in a contact lens simulation. Dilute sulfuric acid is dripped on a real pig eye, rinsed in water, and examined for damage to the pupil. This lab requires plenty of preparation time and materials, but the lesson plan is extremely impactful.
Simulated acid rain, a dilute sulfuric acid solution, needs to be prepared for this demonstration. After a condensed lecture on acid rain, you will apply the solution to a sample of granite and a sample of limestone. Your young scientists will create a data table in which to record the pH of the acid rain both before and after passing through the stone samples. The activity is not exciting, but it effectively shows how limestone can have a buffering effect for the plants and animals.
Students investigate the effects of acid rain on seed germination. In this acid rain lesson plan, students design an experiment to study the effects of sulfuric acid on seeds. Students observe their control seeds and acid treated seeds to compare germination. They draw conclusions based on their results.
