This animated PowerPoint teaches students about the different types of reactions that acids and bases can undergo.
First and foremost, the reactions of acids with metals is demonstrated using a combination of your choice, shown on the PowerPoint using animation, then analyzed for products so that the generalized reaction can be described. NYS Reference Table J (Activity Series) helps students predict which metals will react spontaneously with acids and which won't
Next, students study neutralization reactions of acids with bases. They discover that a salt is produced each time, and go on to predict the products of several neutralization reactions.
Most of my chemistry lessons are 8 slide PowerPoints. I print the PowerPoints each day (4 slides per page... front and back = 1 sheet of paper per student). The students then fill out the answers to my guided and scaffolded questions as I fill them out on the SmartBoard. My teaching style is highly interactive, and my lessons support that style.
All lessons include a Do Now, Mini Lesson, Pair Up, and Summary to keep students moving and engaged.
To remove the "Wickline" watermark, select the Watermark from the Insert menu, then select No Watermark. You cannot remove the watermark's from .pdf files and SmartBoard files, so you'll have to make new ones from your fresh watermark-less Microsoft file.
