Rates of reaction graphs

Worksheets and lesson ideas to challenge students aged 11 to 16 to think about drawing rates of reaction graphs (GCSE and Key Stage 3)

The classics are always the best! This demonstration of sodium thiosulphate reacting with hydrochloric acid is a great way to collect data to draw rates of reaction graphs. It can be easily adapted for a variety of Key Stages and abilities. 

Understanding rates of reaction graphs

GCSE worksheet on drawing rates of reaction graphs. This resource was inspired by a lesson I observed by Jill White. Students race to build Lego towers to help them understand rates of reaction graphs and how they change with increased concentrations and temperatures. (PDF)
