Students perform typical examples of synthesis, decomposition, single and double replacement, combustion, and acid base reactions in a six station lab experiment. Student instructions include safety information and requires students to write balanced equations for each reaction they observe. Answer Key and teacher notes included.
** Updated 2/9/17 to add teacher prep notes for each lab station and color printable labels for each station.
Standard lab equipment is required for this activity, as well as the following chemicals: HCl, NH4OH, phenolphthalein, Mg ribbon, ethanol, baking soda, mossy zinc, KI, Pb(NO3)2, and litmus paper.
Link to online video makeup lab included - I use this so absent students can complete the activity from home, allowing me to clean up the lab that day rather than leave chemicals out in my room.
