Checkpoint Science Scheme of Work Chemistry – Year 3 Topic: Patterns of Reactivity Aims That pupils should be able to: describe the reactivity of metals (with oxygen, water and dilute acids) understand the reactivity series give examples of displacement reactions Links Checkpoint curriculum – Cc 4 IGCSE Chemistry 10.2, IGCSE Combined Sciences Chemistry Topic Two, IGCSE Physical Science 8.2 Words reactivity series, displacement reaction Activities Objectives Students should be able to: Possible Activities Health and safety/notes compare the rates of reaction of some metals with oxygen. Small samples of a range of metals can be cleaned and left in air. They are checked at intervals for signs of oxidation The same range of metals can each be heated in air and placed in a gas jar of oxygen. Safety goggles must be used. Metals include copper, iron, magnesium, zinc. Word equations should be used. compare the rates of reaction of some metals with water. Small pieces of metal are cleaned and left in water to observe changes after the next few days. Some may only react when heated in steam, some will not react at all. The reaction of a small piece of sodium with water can be demonstrated by the teacher with the usual safety precautions. Safety goggles must be used. Word equations should be used. compare the rates of reaction of some metals with dilute acid. Small pieces of metals (NOT including sodium) are added to dilute hydrochloric acid and the reaction observed. The hydrogen gas can be tested. Safety goggles must be used. Word equations should be used. Sodium is too vigorous to be used. www.xtremepapers.net
