Classroom Resources: Chemistry Basics
76 – 85 of 85 Classroom Resources
Elements, Interdisciplinary, History, Periodic Table, Atoms, Model of the Atom | Middle School, High School
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.
Observations, Introduction, Interdisciplinary, Scientific Method | Middle School, High School
In this activity, students work together in a small team in order to solve a problem and achieve a common goal. Students will need to work collaboratively in order to be successful. They will be required to communicate their ideas both verbally and in written form, assign duties, design and carry out a procedure in this activity. They will also be challenged with problem solving when/if their original plan fails.
Electricity, Interdisciplinary, Atoms, Culminating Project, Electrons, Electrons | Elementary School, Middle School
In this activity, students will learn that the flow of electrons within a closed circuit make our lives easier. Students will construct a circuit quiz box that lights up when the correct question and answer are chosen.
Mixtures, Acid, Interdisciplinary, Acid Rain, Chemical Properties | Elementary School
In this lesson, students are presented with an environmental problem to solve using important concepts of chemistry, which involves a lake with deteriorating water quality.
Observations, Chemical Change, Acid, Interdisciplinary, Chemical Change, Acid Rain | Elementary School
In this lab, students will explore simulated reactions that contribute to chemical weathering of certain rocks as it appears in nature. They will compare the effects of two different chemicals as it contacts various rock and mineral samples.
Observations, Chemical Change, Inferences, Interdisciplinary, Chemical Change | Elementary School
In this lesson, students will extract DNA from strawberries and analyze evidence to figure out who perpetrated a petty crime.
Elements, Interdisciplinary, Molecular Formula, Conservation of Mass, Conservation of Matter, Molecular Structure, Balancing Equations, Reversible Reactions, Chemical Change, Matter, Photosynthesis, Monomer | Elementary School
In this lesson, students will explore a simple, but key, biochemical reaction: photosynthesis.
Naming Compounds, Elements, Interdisciplinary, Atoms, Molecular Structure, Matter, Chemical Bond | Elementary School
In this lesson, students explore the structure of matter by designing, building, comparing, and evaluating models of a variety of simple molecules.
Separating Mixtures, Mixtures, Physical Change, Physical Change, Phase Changes, Introduction, Interdisciplinary, Distillation, Solute & Solvent, Mixtures | Elementary School
In this lesson, students review important concepts of the water cycle and then design, test, and evaluate a working model of a desalination plant (a distiller).
Physical Properties, Introduction, Interdisciplinary | Elementary School
In this activity, students will investigate the physical properties of magnetism.
