Product Description
A bubbling activity where students explore the effects of temperature on the rate of the chemical reaction between vinegar and baking soda. Complete directions to setup and run the inquiry activity are described. The packet contains graphic notes to project for your class that contain grade-appropriate science information students should learn about the rate of chemical reactions. There is also a document camera image on collision theory (which is not a difficult concept to teach) which will help your students understand how temperature is related to reaction rates.

The materials and procedure are provided, as is the data table where students can record the reaction times. This can be a stand-alone assignment or incorporated into a laboratory notebook. There are two graphing sheets that are included: one blank and one containing labeled X and Y axis, which allows you to differentiate the graph.

Finally, if students finish early they can start working on a line graph that plots reaction time versus temperature, which makes for a nice follow-up assignment. The student data sheet is provided as is graph paper.
