101 – 112 of 112 Classroom Resources

  • Polymers, Physical Properties, Molecular Structure, Experimental Design, Scientific Method, History, Interdisciplinary | High School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Lesson Plan: Give Your Car Some Bounce

    In this lesson students will learn about polymerization, specifically as it pertains to rubber tires and other materials in a vehicle. Students will take on the role of an engineer, and will investigate physical properties of different polymers and/or elastomers to determine the best material to use for an assigned product.

  • Atomic Theory, History, Interdisciplinary, Culminating Project, Model of the Atom | High School, Middle School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Activity: Scientist Infographic

    In this activity, students will design and publish an infographic focused on a well-known scientist and their contribution to the development of the atomic model.

  • Periodic Table, History, Physical Properties, Chemical Properties, Atoms, Model of the Atom, Atomic Radius, Subatomic Particles, Electrons, Valence Electrons, Electron Configuration, Orbitals , Isotopes, Atomic Mass | High School, Middle School

    Activity: Ptable.com Investigations

    In this activity, students will use the online periodic table found at www.ptable.com to investigate a number of chemistry concepts. Students will use this online resource to explore information about the elements, including historical data, physical properties, periodic trends and more.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Acid & Base Theories, Acid Base Reactions, Acid Rain, pH, History, Interdisciplinary | High School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Project: Acid Base Creative Letter

    In this project, students will compare and contrast the properties of acids and bases and define pH.

  • Pros Cons of Nuclear Power, Radiation, Radiation, Renewable Energy, Interdisciplinary, History | High School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Activity: Nuclear Energy Power Plants

    In this activity, students will conduct research and write a persuasive essay in which they state an opinion about whether the number of nuclear plants should be increased or decreased.

  • Pros Cons of Nuclear Power, Radiation, Radiation, Renewable Energy, Interdisciplinary, History | High School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Activity: Nuclear Energy Debate

    In this activity, students will watch a debate between experts on the merits and drawbacks of nuclear energy. They will use this debate, as well as additional research, to write a short position paper on whether or not to continue using nuclear energy that explains and defends their opinion, as well as the chemistry involved in nuclear energy production.

  • Redox Reaction, History, Oxidation, Reduction, Chemical Change, Observations | High School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Demonstration: Nitric Acid Acts Upon Copper

    In this demonstration, students will hear a story about Ira Remsen and watch a demonstration that recreates her first experiment reacting nitric acid with a copper penny.

  • Molecular Formula, History, Functional Groups, Covalent Bonding, Molecular Structure | High School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Activity: Napoleon's Buttons Writing Assignment

    In this activity, students read Penny Le Couteur and Jay Burreson’s book Napoleon’s Buttons: How 17 Molecules Changed History. They discuss the book in class and complete a written assignment based on the chemistry and history highlighted in the book.

  • Culminating Project, Review, Physical Properties, Chemical Properties, Periodic Table, History, Interdisciplinary, Electron Configuration, Subatomic Particles, Isotopes, Atomic Mass | High School, Middle School

    Access is an AACT member benefit. Project: 21st Century Elements

    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.
