  • Product Description
  • StandardsNEW

This lab activity on chemical reactionswill prepare your 8th grade middle school science and 9th grade physical science students to identify the physical properties that change during a chemical reaction. Students will also be able to identify and name the reactions and products involved in these reactions.

Important Information

  • Answer key included
  • Recommended for 8th grade middle school science and 9th grade physical science

How It Works

  1. Set up 6 - 8 stations with the materials listed below.
  2. Students will work in groups of 3 or 4.
  3. Students will work through the simple instructions AFTER you have gone over them.
  4. Use a timer to keep them on task and focused.
  5. Walk around and monitor student progress to check for understanding.
  6. Make sure students clean up their lab stations before finishing.

I recommend this free online classroom timer app that is easy to use and display to your students.

NGSSHS-PS1-2
Construct and revise an explanation for the outcome of a simple chemical reaction based on the outermost electron states of atoms, trends in the periodic table, and knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties. Examples of chemical reactions could include the reaction of sodium and chlorine, of carbon and oxygen, or of carbon and hydrogen. Assessment is limited to chemical reactions involving main group elements and combustion reactions.
NGSSHS-PS1-7
Use mathematical representations to support the claim that atoms, and therefore mass, are conserved during a chemical reaction. Emphasis is on using mathematical ideas to communicate the proportional relationships between masses of atoms in the reactants and the products, and the translation of these relationships to the macroscopic scale using the mole as the conversion from the atomic to the macroscopic scale. Emphasis is on assessing students’ use of mathematical thinking and not on memorization and rote application of problem-solving techniques. Assessment does not include complex chemical reactions.
