Also at the ACS site, find the "Chem Matters" link under National 
Chemistry Week.

However, we're only learning about 4 types of reactions (synthesis, decomposition, single replacement, double replacement); so they are slightly limited. Ultimately, the students will present their reaction and an example the significance of the reaction in the real world, 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 with? Any suggestions you may have will be extremely helpful!
