51 – 60 of 60 Classroom Resources

  • Periodic Table, Introduction, Elements, History | High School, Middle School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Activity: Element Skit

    In this activity, students will become familiar with the periodic table by creating a skit to explain an element’s symbol, atomic number, and atomic mass.

  • Elements, Periodic Table, Interdisciplinary, History, Atoms, Model of the Atom | Middle School, High School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Project: Element Baby Book

    In this activity, students will “adopt” an element and create a baby book about their “new baby” while they research and learn about the element.

  • Conservation of Matter, Chemical Change, Photosynthesis, Balancing Equations, Reversible Reactions, Molecular Formula, Molecular Structure, Conservation of Mass, Interdisciplinary, Matter, Elements, Monomer | Elementary School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Lesson Plan: Plant Chemistry

    In this lesson, students will explore a simple, but key, biochemical reaction: photosynthesis.

  • Periodic Table, Elements, Matter, Physical Properties, Chemical Properties, Observations, Identifying an Unknown | High School, Middle School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Lab: Periodic Table Trends

    In this lab, students will investigate trends of the periodic table by examining samples of six elements. Students will use observations about the elements’ appearance, conductivity, and malleability to determine whether they are metals, nonmetals, or metalloids. They will also see how these elements, as well as two more in a teacher demo, react with water and use this information to make claims about reactivity patterns in the periodic table.

  • Elements, Model of the Atom, Periodic Table, Introduction, Atoms, Electrons | Middle School, High School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Activity: Periodic Puzzler

    In this activity, students will learn about what makes up an atom and how important protons are in the placement of elements on the periodic table.

  • Model of the Atom, Periodic Table, Elements, Atomic Mass, Electrons, Atoms | Middle School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Activity: Augmented Reality and the Atomic Model

    In this project, students will first work with a partner to select a common element from the periodic table to research. They will create a video using iPods to present their research and they will access the Aurasma app on iPods to upload their video. Students will create a trigger image using a picture of the element from the periodic table. Secondly, the students will use the Aurasma App to scan a different element’s trigger image and will use information from another group’s video to construct a model that replicates the atomic structure for the selected element.

  • Atoms, Subatomic Particles, Isotopes, Atomic Theory, History, Elements | Middle School, High School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Activity: Atomic Structure RAFT

    In this activity, students choose from a number of activity options in order to best display their understanding of atomic structure. The RAFT model will be followed for this assignment, which means the students choose their assignment and may modify the assignment based on Role, Audience, Format, and Topic.

  • Melting Point, Elements, Matter, Density, Chemical Properties, Periodic Table, Inferences | Elementary School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Lesson Plan: Mystery Metals

    In this lesson, students will make measurements, calculations, and inferences to help solve a mystery about the identity of an unknown metal.

  • Chemical Bond, Molecular Structure, Atoms, Elements, Matter, Interdisciplinary, Naming Compounds | Elementary School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Lesson Plan: Modeling Molecules

    In this lesson, students explore the structure of matter by designing, building, comparing, and evaluating models of a variety of simple molecules.

  • Periodic Table, Introduction, Elements, Identifying an Unknown | High School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Activity: Make a Periodic Table

    In this activity students use imaginary elements to create a periodic table based on the known properties of those elements.
