Students explore the role of enzymes in chemical reactions. In this enzymes lesson plan, students use hydrogen peroxide and manganese dioxide to observe a chemical reaction. Students observe the rates of reactions of chalk, hamburger, liver, spinach, potato, and carrot with hydrogen peroxide. They use raw liver and boiled liver and compare the reactions. Students answer summary questions about their results and conclusions.

Donna S.
After 28 years of teaching English, I signed up to teach grade nine art. My school only has 15 teachers and the students were losing out on opportunities to explore their creativity. Having access to the lessons on Lesson Planet has helped me to cover the curriculum while having fun with all the different ways of teaching the subject. To say this site is a blessing is an understatement!
