This masters report pulls together the body of resources available to assist the lecture demonstrator. professor. and teacher of chemistry in incorporating the very powerful teaching tools of chemical demonstrations. The lecture demonstration lies somewhere in the continuum between laboratory exercise and magic trick; but it is not my intention here to debate the pedagogical implications of a chemical demonstration's place in that continuum. I assume simply that the reader is in a position to motivate and excite students about chemistry and will benefit from the material contained herein. The most recent chemical demonstrations materials in print are listed and annotated in this report. The most useful chemical demonstrations-related sites on the internet are also listed and reviewed. The combination of a committed teacher and the following resources cannot but improve both the teaching and learning of chemistry at all levels of education.
