Classroom Resources: Gases
1 – 13 of 13 Classroom Resources
Solubility, Solute & Solvent, Concentration, Pressure, Temperature | High School
In this demonstration, students will explore how changes in pressure and temperature affect the solubility of a gas in an aqueous solution. In addition, students will have the opportunity in a post-demonstration reflection activity to practice using data (in this case their demonstration observations) to make evidence based claims.
Kinetic Molecular Theory, Temperature, Heat, Temperature | Middle School, High School
In this lab, students will investigate the Kinetic Molecular Theory and particle motion while experimenting with a marshmallow. Students will observe how an increase in kinetic energy will cause particles to increase in motion. This concept will be extended into a discussion about additional real world thermal expansion examples.
Temperature, Heat, Temperature | Elementary School, Middle School
In this demonstration, students will investigate what happens to air when it is heated.
Molecular Motion, Density, Density, Temperature | Elementary School
Students will learn about and discuss the behavior of a gas using examples of convection and an optional teacher-led demonstration. Students will then participation in a lab where they will investigate water currents by observing the results of mixing colored warm water with room temperature water. The lab will be followed by a discussion about the molecular activity of the water mixture.
Pressure, Temperature | Elementary School, Middle School
In this demonstration, students will learn how temperature change affects air pressure, while observing an egg getting sucked into a bottle without being touched!
Heat, Temperature, Temperature | Elementary School
In this demonstration students will learn about the cause and effects of global warming. Students will research about global warming, while also comparing it to a demonstration. This will help students to better understand the effects that temperature change can have on the planet.
Temperature, Volume, Gas Laws | Elementary School, Middle School
In this demonstration, students will observe and analyze how the change in temperature of a gas can affect the volume of a gas.
Gas Laws, Pressure, Temperature, Volume, Kinetic Molecular Theory | Middle School, High School
In this animation, students will visualize how volume, temperature, and quality of a gas are related. This is done qualitatively and quantitatively. **This video has no audio**
Temperature, History, Interdisciplinary, Chemical Change, Temperature, Heat | Middle School, High School
In this lab, students will create two simulations of the Earth’s atmosphere. They will compare a control model with a one that has an increased presence of carbon dioxide gas in order to analyze how this effects temperature. They will also complete research in order to learn more about the makeup of the Earth’s atmosphere.
Pressure, Gas Laws, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Temperature, Volume, Molecular Motion, Intermolecular Forces | High School
In this lab, students will understand what causes pressure in a container and the variables that affect pressure (volume, temperature, number of moles) by mimicking molecular motion of gases.
Kinetic Molecular Theory, Ideal Gas, Gas Laws, Volume, Temperature, Graphing, Accuracy, Error analysis | High School
In this lab, students will experimentally determine the value for absolute zero in degrees Celsius.
Gas Laws, Matter, Density, Density, Temperature, Pressure, Volume, Graphing, Observations, Measurements | High School
In this lab, students determine the relationship between volume and pressure of a gas and its temperature and address the common misconception that air does not have mass or density.
Gas Laws, Pressure, Temperature, Volume | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
In this demonstration, students will observe the impact of temperature change on a gas through an engaging demonstration using simple household materials.
