Greener Redox Lab

This Greener Redox Lab lesson plan also includes:

Do some experimentation with reduction-oxidation! Stoichiometry superstars use a single-replacement reaction to study limiting reactant, theoretical yield, and the reactivity of metals through a lab activity. The teacher's guide includes printables and answer keys—making grading a breeze.

Instructional Ideas

  • Use the lab to illustrate redox reactions, stoichiometry, and yield calculations
  • Extend the lesson by having learners write net ionic equations for the reaction
Classroom Considerations

  • Allow for adequate drying time of the lab's product; pupils must have accurate masses to perform the calculations
  • Make sure groups have access to a copy of the activity series of metals to answer the post-lab questions
Pros

  • Excellent cumulative assessment for a stoichiometry unit
  • Procedure is written clearly and is easy to follow
  • The reactants used in the experiment are safer and more student-friendly than the traditional silver-copper versions of the lab
Cons

  • None
