Students produce copper metal by electrolysis. In this REDOX lesson plan, students use a copper (II) chloride solution and a 9 volt battery to produce copper metal through an electrolysis reaction. Students make observations and take note of any odors at each electrode. They reverse the polarity and indicate their observations. Students answer 5 questions about oxidation and reduction at the anode and cathode.

I am actually not a teacher, yet. I am a college student on my way to becoming a high school math teacher. Lesson Planet has been a lifesaver on several occasions. I have used it for everything from learning how to word a lesson plan to using a lesson plan I found on the site to teach a mini-lesson. I use it quite a bit now so I know it will be invaluable in my teaching career. It is great as it is and so easy to navigate.
