Product Details

360Storyline is a collection of experiments that together let students engage in science in an authentic manner through the use of relevant phenomena. Each experiment in a 360Storyline builds on things learned in the preceding experiments until students develop a final, working explanation or model of the phenomenon. Every lab in any 360Storyline is completely editable and supported by videos and simulations. 

Includes:

  • Access to digital content for 1 year
  • Lab supplies for each experiment for a single class of 30 students

 

Acid Rain
Lead students to a written understanding/working model of how acid rain impacts the environment. Acid rain occurs when rain reacts with compounds in the atmosphere and forms acids. It has a pH of less than 5.6, which is the pH of common rain water. It can affect plants, animals and infrastructure. With these activities, students can examine the different effects of acids and bases and how buffers can help mediate those effects.

What Students Do

Lab 1—Measure Acid Strength
Students evaluate weak acid salts to determine their relative strengths and draw a model contrasting weak and strong acids.

Lab 2—Titrations—The Study of Acid–Base Chemistry
Students use titration to determine the concentration of unknown vinegar samples.

Lab 3—Analysis of Buffer Solutions and Ranges
Students investigate buffers and the role they play in acid–base chemistry.

Lab 4—The Quantitative Analysis of Acid Rain
Students use titration to identify an unknown acid sample. They combine their data with information about common types of acid rain.

About 360Storylines

360Storyline is a collection of experiments that together let students engage in science in an authentic manner through the use of relevant phenomena. Each experiment in a 360Storyline builds on things learned in the preceding experiments until students develop a final, working explanation or model of the phenomenon. Every lab in any 360Storyline is completely editable and supported by videos and simulations. 

Students must drive the learning forward by developing procedures and asking questions. Each storyline is supported by editable documents that force students to think about how the data they collect relate to an individual experiment’s investigative phenomenon and how the data they collect in a series of labs relate to a broader, anchoring phenomenon.

Performance Expectations

HS-PS1-5: Apply scientific principles and evidence to provide an explanation about the effects of changing the temperature or concentration of the reacting particles on the rate at which a reaction occurs.
HS-PS1-6: Refine the design of a chemical system by specifying a change in conditions that would produce increased amounts of products at equilibrium.
HS-PS1-7: Use mathematical representations to support the claim that atoms, and therefore mass, are conserved during a chemical reaction.
