This zip file contains many different activities (43 pages of student handouts and PowerPoints with a total of 106 slides) which can be used to compose a unit for chemistry students introducing and reviewing some basic science skills required for chemistry. While these lessons were originally designed to correlate to the performance indicators of the New York State Chemistry - Physical Setting curriculum, the components of this lesson may be easily used in other chemistry or physical science courses as well. The components this unit addresses in the NGSS Standards and Common Core Standards are indicated at the end of this description.
Some of the topics addressed in this learning packet include potential energy diagrams, heat of reaction, factors influencing reaction rate, equilibrium expressions, enthalpy/entropy and Le Chatelier's Principle.
Many documents are included in both word docx as well as pdf format to allow editing for specific teacher needs.
The specific contents of the learning package includes the following items (the page count for these items are actual student handouts as answer key page counts are not included):
-- Marzano self assessment scale including learning goals and Common Core Reading/Writing and Mathematics Standards for students specific to this unit (3 pages)
-- Cloze notes handout for students with learning goals and Common Core Standards (8 pages)
-- 52 slide PowerPoint to accompany the cloze notes
-- Factors Influencing the Rate of a Chemical Reaction Lab (3 pages)
-- Potential Energy Diagram Worksheet with key (4 pages) (20 questions)
-- Heat of Reaction Worksheet with answer key (15 questions) (2 pages)
-- Heat of Reaction Reference Table (1 page)
-- Factors Influencing Reaction Rate Worksheet with answer key (4 pages) (13 questions)
-- Equilibrium and Le Chatelier's Worksheet with answer key(6 pages) (23 questions)
-- Entropy and the Common Ion Effect with key (3 pages) (12 questions)
-- Kinetics and Equilibrium Unit Exam with key (12 pages) (50 questions)
-- Kinetics and Equilibrium Jeopardy Review Game in PowerPoint format (26 questions) (54 slides)
-- Reaction Rates (surface area influence) video in flv format
HS-PS1-4. Develop a model to illustrate that the release or absorption of energy from a chemical reaction system depends upon the changes in total bond energy.
HS-PS1-5. Apply scientific principles and evidence to provide an explanation about the effects of changing the temperature or concentration of the reacting particles on the rate at which a reaction occurs.
HS-PS1-6. Refine the design of a chemical system by specifying a change in conditions that would produce increased amounts of products at equilibrium.
