The Chemistry of Refining Crude Oil

Consider our energy sources: wood, coal, oil, uranium. Learners compare the pollution to energy produced for each. They practice fractional distillation of an alcohol/water mixture to simulate the process of refining crude oil. Thought-provoking questions are assigned as a follow-up to the laboratory exercise. This is an outstanding resource to add to your physical or earth science repertoire.

Lesson Planet allows me to browse through teacher created lesson plans that I can easily adapt to fit with my class materials. I like how I can save plans that I choose so I can go back and find information and resources with ease.
