Carolina Chemonstrations®: Reaction Types Kit

(in stock)


  • Carolina Chemonstrations® are much more than just an exciting chemical demonstration
  • Introduce chemical reactions by demonstrating a variety of colorful and engaging reactions
  • Connect reaction types to real-world applications
  • Help students meet the Next Generation Science Standards Performance Expectation HS-PS1-4: Develop a model to illustrate that the release or absorption of energy from a chemical reaction system depends upon the changes in total bond energy

Demonstrate 5 different reaction types with this highly visual, multifaceted kit. Students learn how to predict the products for the synthesis reaction of iron and oxygen, the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide, the single-replacement reaction of iron and copper sulfate, the double-replacement reaction of sodium bicarbonate and vinegar, and the combustion of ethanol. Students then write balanced chemical equations for these and additional reactions. Students are further engaged in the particulate-level chemistry by modeling and illustrating the reactions. This demo is great for introducing chemical reactions, reaction types, or as a review. This demonstration requires approximately 20 minutes and materials are sufficient for each of the 5 demonstrations to be performed 5 times.
