This is a skeletal lesson plan format of performing analysis labs of cations and anions. To perform these labs, I always perform them at the end of the semester as a preparation for the AP exam. I actually combine the two separate labs (cations and anions) into a single lab and give multiple class periods to complete it. I give the students 5 unknowns (from a possible 20) and then give them five periods to identify each of their unknowns. I started with the basic labs from Vonderbrink and added an extra part of a flame test to the cation portion and then added the thiocyanate ion to the anion portion. This plan does not include the handout for the lab given that the written portion of the lab is not my work.
Different states and districts have different sets of standards and requirements for lesson plans so this is not a one-size-fits-all situation. Feel free to edit as desired to meet your needs. I use this format because I like to write on the lesson plans as I use them in class. This is the plan I start with and then I write notes to document starting and stopping points each day, re-teach opportunities, and situations where class was not held for a day because of possible assemblies, fire-drills, etc.
