Lesson plan in which students will conduct two chemical reactions. Includes links to videos during introduction "Engage" and three activities with discussion questions after each one. There are also several extension activities. Answers are found as text after the questions.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Energy and Biochemical Reactions.
To increase reading comprehension, activate prior knowledge, develop collaboration and communication with peers, and determine how key vocabulary words relate to one another using Text Scan.
To use problem-solving skills and deepen understanding of the text to compare key vocabulary words with more familiar everyday words using Word Analogies.
This lesson focuses on the use of technology to collect, graph and analyze data from an exothermic and an endothermic reaction.
