This resource is designed for students to be able to plan and conduct an exothermic reaction by creating a reaction with the given materials prepared by the teacher. Students will then be able to observe the chemical reaction occur and explain their observations through oral and written language.

Colorful, or black and white, version is attached! Complete PowerPoint with Directions, Standards and Objectives, Materials, Student Worksheet, Guiding Discussion Questions, and Video link.

This resource is aligned with NGSS Standards:

MS-PS1-6: Plan and conduct an experiment using exothermic and endothermic reactions to explain that the type and concentration of the reacting substances affects the amount of thermal energy released or absorbed.

MS-PS1-4:

Develop a model that predicts and describes changes in particle motion, temperature, and state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed. Emphasis is on qualitative molecular-level models of solids, liquids, and gases to show that adding or removing thermal energy increases or decreases kinetic energy of the particles until a change of state occurs. Examples of models could include drawings and diagrams. Examples of particles could include molecules or inert atoms. Examples of pure substances could include water, carbon dioxide, and helium.

NGSSMS-PS1-6
Undertake a design project to construct, test, and modify a device that either releases or absorbs thermal energy by chemical processes. Emphasis is on the design, controlling the transfer of energy to the environment, and modification of a device using factors such as type and concentration of a substance. Examples of designs could involve chemical reactions such as dissolving ammonium chloride or calcium chloride. Assessment is limited to the criteria of amount, time, and temperature of substance in testing the device.
NGSS5-PS1-2
Measure and graph quantities to provide evidence that regardless of the type of change that occurs when heating, cooling, or mixing substances, the total weight of matter is conserved. Examples of reactions or changes could include phase changes, dissolving, and mixing that forms new substances. Assessment does not include distinguishing mass and weight.
NGSSMS-PS1-4
Develop a model that predicts and describes changes in particle motion, temperature, and state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed. Emphasis is on qualitative molecular-level models of solids, liquids, and gases to show that adding or removing thermal energy increases or decreases kinetic energy of the particles until a change of state occurs. Examples of models could include drawings and diagrams. Examples of particles could include molecules or inert atoms. Examples of pure substances could include water, carbon dioxide, and helium.
NGSS5-PS1-4
Conduct an investigation to determine whether the mixing of two or more substances results in new substances.
