Working in groups, students reclaim copper from a liquid 'waste' containing dissolved copper chloride. They will measure the effectiveness of three different metal replacement reactions at removing the copper from the 'waste'. They will then compare the effectiveness, cost, and safety information for each replacement reaction and decide which metal would be the best to use for removing the copper from the 'waste'. Accommodates 12 groups of 2 students. Includes Teacher guide, student sheets, assessment questions and SDS.
