Lesson Plan

Single and Double Displacement Reactions

If you aren't part of the solution, you are part of the precipitate! Young chemists learn about single and double displacement reactions including precipitation reactions, neutralization reactions, and gas forming reactions. They perform a variety of reactions, identify the observable signs, identify the products in each reaction, and write a balanced chemical equation for each of the 14 reactions completed in the fifth of 11 lessons.
