Rate Determining Step and Catalysts

Young scholars investigate the rate determining step in a chemical reaction and how catalysts effect reactions. In this rate determining step and catalyst lesson, students work in groups to perform 5 tasks. They rotate each task and time how long the tasks take to complete. They compare their answer and conclude the rate determining step (the slowest step). Young scholars use liver blood and hydrogen peroxide to observe the rate determining step of the breakdown of hydrogen peroxide.

Lesson Planet has cut down on my planning time for science and social studies. It has given me creative ideas for units and materials for math centers and materias to share at grade level planning.
