Opening Day Demonstrations

First impressions are so important! Master teachers share their favorite opening day activities to welcome students and fire up their imaginations. 2 videos.

Lab technique, safety, combustion, acid–base indicators, decomposition, nature, history of chemistry, exothermic reactions, catalysis

Video Description
Welcome to Chemistry A get-acquainted activity and three demonstrations for the first day of class! 4 activities, 42 min.
The Exciting Nature of Chemistry Learn more about the nature of chemistry with these colorful and eye-catching activities! 4 activities, 46 min.


Safety doesn’t just “happen,” and it’s not something you teach once and then forget. Safety precautions and safety rules should be continuously reviewed throughout the school year and consistently enforced on a daily basis. 3 videos.

Concepts: Goggle safety, personal protective equipment, flammable liquid safety, corrosive liquids, acids and bases, MSDS

Video Description
Start with Safety—Safety Demonstrations Simple, practical, effective demos will help you teach students the meaning of specific hazard warnings and the importance of following safety precautions. 5 activities, 28 min.
Safe Laboratory Practices These activities will help you model safe laboratory practices and will remind you to perform a "safety checklist" when working in the lab. 3 activities, 45 min.
Teaching Safety to Students Getting students to comply with laboratory safety rules and teaching them proper lab techniques are two of the most important responsibilities of every chemistry teacher. 3 activities, 37 min.

Matter and Measurement 

Build a solid foundation for student achievement in chemistry with activities revolving around measurement and the classification of matter. 4 videos.

Measurement, classification of matter, conservation of mass, balancing equations, accuracy vs. precision, graphing, physical vs. chemical changes, separation of mixtures

Video Description
Introduction to Measurement A lot of our knowledge about the physical world comes from measurements. Five activities help you develop essential student knowledge and measurement skills. 4 activities, 40 min.
Measurement Lab Activities Engaging, inquiry-based lab activities help students practice metric measurements. 3 activities, 36 min.
Classifying Matter/Physical Vs. Chemical Changes Help students visualize abstract concepts in order to "see" chemistry at the microscopic level. 4 activities, 43 min.
Separation of Mixtures Chemistry is all around us! Investigate mixtures used to produce common everyday items. 4 activities, 38 min.


Focus on key concepts and skills to help students successfully apply this characteristic physical property of substances. 3 videos.

Density, immiscibility, polar and nonpolar liquids, density of air and other gases, graphing skills, inquiry-based learning, buoyancy

Video Description
Density Demonstrations Proven density demonstrations with unexpected results that will stimulate your students. 5 activities, 43 min.
Density of Gases A series of gas-related density demonstrations showing that although gases may be colorless and odorless, they take up space! Air really does matter! 4 activities, 45 min.
Density Lab Activities Consumer-driven density labs provide "food for thought" at the beginning of the school year! Increase student "ownership" and improve learning by converting traditional density labs to inquiry. 3 activities, 58 min.
