Classroom Resources: Chemistry Basics
51 – 57 of 57 Classroom Resources
Introduction, Periodic Table, Identifying an Unknown | High School
In this activity, students organize alien cards into groups and periods following trends, similar to how the periodic table is put together.
Observations, Physical Properties, Chemical Change, Inferences, Periodic Table, Identifying an Unknown, Chemical Properties, Error Analysis | High School
In this lab, students will classify several samples of elements as metals, nonmetals, or metalloid based on their physical and chemical properties.
Physical Properties, Periodic Table, Identifying an Unknown, Atomic Radius, Ionization Energy, Electronegativity | High School
In this activity, students will use their knowledge of Periodic Trends to analyze and identify unknown elements and organize them correctly in the Periodic Table.
Periodic Table, Identifying an Unknown | High School
In this activity, students learn about periodic trends by organizing cards and then determining the information on a missing card.
Introduction, Elements, Periodic Table, Identifying an Unknown | High School
In this activity students use imaginary elements to create a periodic table based on the known properties of those elements.
Naming Compounds, Molecular Formula, Periodic Table, Covalent Bonding, Ionic Bonding, Valence Electrons, Subatomic Particles, Lewis Dot Diagrams, Molecular Geometry, Ions, Lewis Structures | Middle School, High School
In the September 2016 simulation, students investigate both ionic and covalent bonding. Students will have the opportunity to interact with many possible combinations of atoms and will be tasked with determining the type of bond and the number of atom needed to form each. Students will become familiar with the molecular formula, as well as the naming system for each type of bond and geometric shape, when applicable.
Physical Properties, Interdisciplinary, History, Periodic Table, Review, Culminating Project, Isotopes, Electron Configuration, Atomic Mass, Subatomic Particles, Chemical Properties | Middle School, High School
In this project, students will learn the importance of the elements in our lives. The students will research one chosen element and create a website, a digital comic strip, or a video to explain the important properties of the element as well as why the element is so important to our lives.
