This site is a good resource for students and teachers. There is a bevy of activities that one can examine. The videos are of particular interest to me, as I am always looking for ways to liven up a lecture.

I like the videos for the experiments. Often times chemistry books will show you pictures of what happens but this lets you see the action as it takes place. This is crucial for reactions that have more than one phase to them and you can see how they progress.

Under the Complex Ions option, the site briefly discusses aqueous solutions and then allows the student to select and observe various experiments. A helpful visual for students, especially if you don't have immediate access to a lab to conduct similar experiments.
