This lesson focuses on having students examine the effect of different factors on the rate of a chemical reaction, including: temperature, concentration of particles, surface area of reactants, and the presence of catalysts. Activities organized at lab stations allow students to explore each factor with minimal teacher guidance. These activities are combined with online simulations in the lesson to support students in developing a molecular level understanding of how and why each factor affects the rate of change.
