In this lab experience, students carry out an investigation to perform five reactions that cover different reaction types, look for evidence of a chemical reaction in each case and write the chemical equations for each. These four labs help students understand the various reaction types and despite the fact that there are so many different chemical reactions that can occur, most can be classified into five basic types of chemical reactions: combination reactions, decomposition reactions, single replacement reactions, double replacement reactions and combustion reactions. With these labs, students will be able to get first hand experience with these reaction types!

Safety: Before conducting the lab, review with the class the safety precautions on the student page. Then discuss any safety precautions that are specific to your science laboratory or classroom. Good ventilation is required since using a bunsen burner flame and ethyl alcohol. Reaction 3 can be performed by the instructor as a demonstration. Allow some time between trials so the smoke has time to dissipate.
