Accuracy and Precision Lab (with measurement and density) part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this lab exercise, students practice correctly using measurement tools, recording data, calculating density, using significant figures, and exploring the concepts of accuracy and precision.

Subject: Chemistry:General Chemistry, Physics:General Physics:Mathematical Physics, Measurement/Units, Mathematics

Building 3D Models of Atoms part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a hands-on building of atoms of elements 1-20.

Subject: Chemistry:General Chemistry:Atomic Structure,

Investigating Ions: Copper Topping part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this chemistry experiment, students will learn the fundamentals of copper plating (without using electricity) and if desired, extend the activity using different variables.

Subject: Chemistry:General Chemistry:Chemical Reactions,

Temperature-Volume Relationship of a Gas part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This investigation uses the relationship between volume and temperature to reinforce the ideal gas law. It also uses the data collected to find absolute zero.

Subject: Chemistry:General Chemistry:Gas Laws, Physics:Thermodynamics & Statistical Mechanics:Gas Law

Specific Heat part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection

Subject: Chemistry:General Chemistry:Thermodynamics:Heat

Mixtures, Solutions and Saturation: Testing Household Materials part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a laboratory extension where students test and collect data on two kitchen materials in the categories of solubility, saturation, chemical reaction and weights. Thus, giving students opportunity to reinforce skills already learned.

Subject: Chemistry:General Chemistry:Mixtures, Solutions, & Compounds,

Adjusting Your Water Heater to Conserve Energy part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
- In this lab-based activity the students will use their knowledge about the law of conservation of energy to explain the loss of heat by warm water to cold water. Then, the students will use these concepts to design and carry an experiment to determine the unknown temperature of a hot water sample.

Subject: Chemistry:General Chemistry:Thermodynamics:Heat

Heat Transfer part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is an exploration of heat and color where students will graph water temperature to compare a black can, a white can, and a plain can.

Subject: Chemistry:General Chemistry:Thermodynamics, Thermodynamics:Heat,

Precision in Measurement - Finding When an Object Changes Color part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This inquiry activity is designed to have students measure when a mood object (pencil or straw that changes color with temperature) changes color. They can than report on their precision, accuracy, margin of error, degree of uncertainty, and level of confidence in their answer.

HYDROGEN-OXYGEN ROCKETS part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
During this activity students build a plastic pipette rocket. The first concept will to learn how igniting varying mixtures of hydrogen and oxygen will affect how far the rocket will fly. Second students will observe and manipulate variables to better understand the fundamental chemistry concepts: principles of combustion reactions, kinetics, stoichiometry, gas mixtures, rocketry, and different types of chemical reactions. Finally, students will assess their own understanding of these chemistry concepts by investigating how NASA scientists launch real rockets into space. One follow-up activity would be to investigate and collect data on a launching a heavier object at the school football field.
