The book Chemistry on a Budget contains inexpensive chemistry labs that are useful with easy to obtain materials.
The early labs include the topics of Significant Figures, Density (3 labs), the Separation of a Mixture (including coverage of Percent Composition), and Liquid Chromatography. These are safe labs that cover essential information, giving you time to emphasize Lab Safety and get Lab Safety Contracts signed.
There are two versions of each lab, one with a ten-question conclusion and one with directions for a full lab report. This way the teacher has the option! Each lab is two pages to allow for one two-sided handout.
You can buy this lab book for $23 at amazon.com or lulu.com. It will take 1-2 weeks to get to you -- Order Now. It’s a great resource!

Mole Day is October 23 (10/23) – this year it’s on a Sunday. You may want to start introducing Mole math before or after that date.

There are several labs in the book Chemistry on a Budget including “Catching Moles,” “Moles in Your Name?” and beginning Stoichiometry with “A Chemical Reaction”.
I have posted about Moles before, but here are some useful overviews of The Mole Concept (I hope not repeats):
