Chemistry Lab Bundle: 15 Must Do Labs

Great lab experiences are the key to a successful chemistry or physical science course. Spice up your class by having your students perform these 15 "Must-Do" chemistry and/or physical science labs. These labs cover density, conservation of mass, stoichiometry, percent composition, periodic trends, types of chemical reactions, flame tests, and so much more.

Graphing the trends / properties of the periodic table is a great way to help your students visualize and understand the trends between the elements on the periodic table.  What trend is seen in atomic radius for the elements in a period or in a group? Why does this happen? Graphing these trends provides a hands-on and visual way to grasp the periodic properties.

Chemistry Lab: Types Of Chemical Reactions

Students will complete several “mini-experiments,” each of which is an example of one of the four basic types of chemical reactions: Synthesis, Decomposition, Single displacement, and Double displacement. Students will record their observations of each chemical reaction. Students will also be required to predict the products and write balanced chemical equations for each.

Lab: Isotopes and Atomic Mass

How is the atomic mass of an element determined when the element has several isotopes? In this lab students will carry out experiments and perform the necessary calculations to determine the atomic mass of the fictitious element “vegium.” As you would expect, each vegium isotope has a different mass. From a sample of vegium atoms students will determine the relative abundance of each isotope and the mass of each vegium isotope.

Metals are often coated with a layer of zinc to prevent corrosion. In this lab, students will remove the galvanized zinc coating from the surface of a metal and calculate the thickness of this zinc layer of atoms.

Chemistry Lab: The Heating Curve of Water

In this lab students will clearly observe that the energy applied to a system can be used to change the temperature or to change the phase of a substance, but not both at the same time. Students will record temperature data as they heat ice through two phase changes. This data will be used to crea...

Chemistry Lab: Stoichiometry - Mole and Mass Relationships Chemical Equation, Chemistry Labs, Physical Science, Physics, Students, Teacher, Relationship, Activities, Ideas

The Relationship Between Moles and Mass

Students will use a known mass of sodium hydrogen carbonate (NaHCO3) and react it with an excess amount of hydrochloric acid. From the amount of NaHCO3 used, and the balanced chemical equation, students can determine how much NaCl should be produced. In this lab students will be comparing the theoretical value of NaCl produced with the actual experimental mass of NaCl produced.

Chemistry Lab: Activity Series Of The Elements

The "activity series of the elements" is a list of elements in order of their reactivity. This list can be used to help determine when an element and a compound will react in a single replacement reaction. By observing reactions between single elements and compounds, scientists have been able to de...
