Gain insight and tips for making the best use of a Science Coach partnership, or any science visitor to your classroom.
Students practice classifying different chemical reactions, balancing equations, and solving stoichiometry problems.
In this lab, students will determine the specific heat capacity of multiple unknown metal samples through collecting data and completing calorimetric calculations.
This webinar highlights five AACT lesson plans for the 5th grade classrooms that align with NGSS.

Is There Chemistry in the Vacuum of Space? (March 13, 2018)
We challenged teachers to tell us what they've heard isn't chemistry and we'd show them how it was related to chemistry. Read on to find out the winning answer and how Jenelle Ball, AACT's 2017-2018 Governing Board President, responded.
Using AACT Resources to Teach Aqueous Solutions (March 13, 2018)
In our last news post we looked at resources that focused on phase changes and heat transfer. Now we are moving on to lessons and activities that can be used to support a unit plan for teaching aqueous solutions. This includes molarity calculations, solution preparation, dilution, solubility, solubility rules, and colligative properties.
AACT members have access to 50 ACS Publications articles each year. We are highlighting one article or activity each month that you might consider downloading through this member benefit. This month, we are featuring a hands-on student activity from the July 2014 issue of the Journal of Chemical Education titled A Hands-on Activity Incorporating the Threefold Representation on Limiting Reactant by Angélica M. González-Sánchez, Edgardo L. Ortiz-Nieves, and Zuleika Medina.
