Types of Chemical Reactions

10th - 12th

In this chemistry activity, students investigate 15 different chemical reactions using the internet. They classify them according to their correct type.

Resource Details


Chemical Reaction in a Baggy

Tenth graders observe various chemical reactions in the lab. In this chemistry lesson, 10th graders list the indications that a chemical reaction took place. They give real life examples of reactions they see everyday.

Conservation During Chemical Reactions

In this chemical reaction learning exercise, 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.

What is a Chemical Reaction?-Evidence of Change

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.

Chemical Reactions

In this writing chemical reactions worksheet, 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.

Did a Chemical Reaction "Really" Occur?

Students perform several different experiments to observe signs of chemical reactions and determine if reaction has occurred, use search engine to find Internet sites pertaining to chemical reactions, and write up brief summary of site.

Energy and Chemical Reactions

In this chemistry unit worksheet, students study the energy involved in chemical reactions. They solve 7 exercise sections on chemical equations.

Types of Chemical Reactions

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 instructional activity due to the well-thought-out plans provided.

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.

Five Major Chemical Reactions

Instruct your chemistry stars on the five different classes of chemical reactions with text, computer animation, and narrative. This video is short and to the point. Embed it into your PowerPoint or SmartBoard presentation when teaching the different types of reactions.

Types of chemical reactions

Students examine the different types of reactions and the products and reactants in them.  In this chemical reactions lesson students write and balance equations.
