Go to to learn about their offerings. I know they have kits 
available that give good experiment ideas as well as classroom activities.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Reaction info for students

A friend who teaches 8th grade science has a project for her students descr
ibed below. She's looking for some reference materials for them. Any sugges
tions would be appreciated. You can respond to me and I'll forward them to 
 My students have just started the chemistry unit. There is a final project
 due at the end of the unit where the students have to find a real world ex
ample of a chemical reaction. However, we're only learning about 4 types of
 reactions (synthesis, decomposition, single replacement, double replacemen
t); so they are slightly limited. Ultimately, the students will present the
ir reaction and an example the significance of the reaction in the real wor
ld, along with a bunch of other info. The first deadline that the students 
have is to find a reaction in the real world and know what type of reaction
 it is. Being that I teach 8th graders, I wanted to provide them with some 
resources that could help them find applications of reactions. Do you know 
of any good website, books, or other resources that I could provide them wi
th? Any suggestions you may have will be extremely helpful!
