Your high school chemistry students will enjoy four interactive stations, which will review major topics covered in introductory chemistry courses. I use this resource as a review the week before my students take their final exams, but it can also be used during the final days of school as a fun activity. A detailed answer key and post-station quiz is also included!
Topics reviewed in the stations include stoichiometry, naming compounds, determining bond type, using the gas laws, determining reaction types, analyzing the periodic table, and writing balanced equations.
Duration: Students will spend 12 minutes at each lab station. I divide my class into four lab groups. With an introduction, these stations take about 50 minutes to complete.
Safety: Ensure that your students keep their goggles and gloves on at all times. Enforce all rules related to glass safety and chemical safety. Review all MSDS sheets for the chemicals you will be using before the lab.
Station Set-up: Set up all materials before students arrive. You will be creating four stations around the room. If a material has the word “several” beside it, place as many of those materials as there are group members on the station.
1) Several digital scales
2) Mossy zinc (one piece per student)
3) Test tube rack
4) Several test tubes
5) Copper sulfate solution (CuSO4)
6) Several graduated cylinders
7) Waste beaker
Station Two: There is no specific quantity or molarity necessary; students are viewing samples. If you do not have a sample, you can use a photograph.
1) Potassium nitrate (fertilizer)
2) Sodium chloride (table salt)
3) Aluminum (aluminum foil)
4) Hydrochloric acid
6) Sodium hypochlorite (NaClO)
7) Potassium chloride
9) Magnesium sulfate
1) several digital scales
2) several balloons
1) several magnesium strips
2) hydrochloric acid (diluted)
3) several glass graduated cylinders
4) waste beaker
