5.04 Gas
Calculations
Prepare a report (in the form of a news broadcast,
newspaper article, video, or public service
announcement) that explains the dangers of carbon
monoxide poisoning and the necessary safety
precautions.
The presentation should include:



Create a special report on the truth behind
electrolytes. This report can be presented as an
article or newscast.

7.03 pH
8.04 Energy
Efficient Home
Your team will research at least two different bases
that are ingredients used in over-the-counter
antacids. The final product can be in the form of a
research paper, science article, or any other
appropriate presentation.

Conduct research and then prepare a report (in the
form of a slide presentation, written report, or
video) that explains the causes of acid rain, where
it is the most prevalent, its damaging effects, and
what, if anything, can be done to reduce the
occurrence of acid rain.

Your group is designing a new “green” home or
school that will be more environmentally friendly
and energy efficient. Conduct research and then
prepare a report (in the form of a slide presentation,
written report, video, or other presentation) that
explains the features of your building and aspects
of the construction process that make it more
environmentally friendly and energy efficient.
