Classroom Resources: Kinetics
1 – 15 of 15 Classroom Resources
Reaction Rate, Activation Energy, Catalysts, Reaction Rate | High School
Lesson Plan: Kinetics Unit Plan
The AACT high school classroom resource library and multimedia collection has everything you need to put together a unit plan for your classroom: lessons, activities, labs, projects, videos, simulations, and animations. We constructed a unit plan using AACT resources that is designed to teach the topic of kinetics to your students.
Reaction Rate, Order of Reaction , Activation Energy, Catalysts, Rate Constant, Rate Determining Step, Reaction Rate | High School
Lesson Plan: Reaction Mechanisms
In this lesson students explore reaction mechanisms and their connection to rate laws and energy profile graphs through a game, relay race, and finally a chemical demonstration.
Reaction Rate, Activation Energy, Hess's Law, Exothermic & Endothermic, Le Châtelier's Principle | High School
Lab: Kinetics and Equilibrium
In this lab, students will investigate the reaction of the hydrogen sulfite ion (HSO3-) and the iodate ion (IO3-) to determine the effect that changing concentration and temperature has on the reaction rate.
Reaction Rate, Reaction Rate | Middle School, High School
Activity: Simulation Activity: Investigating Reaction Rates
In this simulation, students will have the opportunity to investigate several factors that can affect the initial rate of a chemical reaction. Students will have the opportunity to manipulate several variables including concentration, temperature, or surface area of the reactants as well as the addition of a catalyst during the simulation. These reaction rates will be compared to a controlled reaction. Students will interpret a simplified qualitative representation of the reaction as well as analyze corresponding data organized on a graph.
Reaction Rate, Reaction Rate, Chemical Change | Middle School, High School
Demonstration: Comparing Rates of Reaction
In this demonstration, students observe the effect of temperature, concentration, and particle size on the rate of a chemical reaction.
Reaction Rate, Activation Energy, Catalysts, Combustion, Reaction Rate | High School
Demonstration: Rates of Reactions
In this series of demonstrations, students will be introduced to factors that affect the rates of chemical reactions. They will observe and record their observations, while also describing the rate-influencing factor for each demonstration as well as evidence supporting whether or not the reaction rate was increased or decreased by the factor.
Chemical Change, Exothermic & Endothermic, Redox Reaction, Reaction Rate | High School
Demonstration: Potassium Permanganate Demo
In this demo, students witness two chemicals that take some time to react. The KMnO4 and glycerin come into contact and appear not to react, but then a flame results. This is an example of an exothermic redox reaction.
Reaction Rate, Order of Reaction | High School
Lab: Kinetic Approach to Water Flow
This lab uses the principles of chemical kinetics without using a chemical reaction. It’s an effective means to introduce the important relationship between concentration and time at an introductory level. Students will have the opportunity to analyze data and make important connections through graphing their data.
Titrations, Equivalence point, Indicators, Acid Base Reactions, Chemical Change, Salts, Molarity, Reaction Rate, Order of Reaction , Error analysis | High School
Lab: Titration Lab with Kinetics
In this lab, students calculate the molarity of an unknown using a titration and also by solving for a dilution.
Reaction Rate | High School, Middle School
Lab: Starch-Iodine Clock Reaction
In this lab, students perform an iodine clock reaction to determine how concentration and temperature effect the reaction rate.
Reaction Rate, Chemical Change, Reaction Rate, Observations | Middle School, Elementary School, High School
Demonstration: Simple Kinetics
In this demonstration, students will see that different food dyes react with bleach at different rates.
Reaction Rate | High School, Middle School
Lab: Reaction Rate
In this lab, students will explore factors that effect reaction rate and develop a general statement that describes how the factors (temperature, particle size, and concentration) effect the rate based on experimental data. This is an inquiry-based activity.
Solubility, Saturated/unsaturated/supersaturated, Mixtures, Reaction Rate | High School
Lab: Rate of Solution
In this lab, students observe how particle size, solvent temperature, and agitation affect rate of solution.
Reaction Rate, Reaction Rate, Acid Base Reactions | Middle School, High School
Lab: Plop, Fizz: How to Affect the Rate of a Chemical Reaction
In this lesson, students will react Alka-Seltzer tablets with water. By varying the temperature of the water, particle size of the Alka-Seltzer, and concentration of the Alka-Seltzer they can see the effect on the rate and strength of the chemical reaction.
Catalysts, Reaction Rate | High School
Lesson Plan: Catalysis & Catalytic Converters
In this lesson students will be introduced to catalysts while expanding their knowledge of chemical reactions and stoichiometry. They will first learn about catalytic converters and then be challenged to create the best “catalytic converter” of hydrogen peroxide to oxygen gas in an inquiry-based activity.
