1 – 6 of 6 Classroom Resources

  • Polarity, Molecular Structure, Heat, Radiation | High School

    Lesson Plan: Why Does Carbon Get Such a Bad Rap?

    In this lesson, students will use a climate change scenario to understand the role that polar bonds play in whether a molecule can be considered a greenhouse gas, while learning the particle nature of matter-energy interactions.

  • Interdisciplinary, Heat, Temperature, Electromagnetic Spectrum, Graphing, Radiation, Experimental Design | Middle School, High School

    Lesson Plan: The Ozone Layer

    In this lesson, students will develop an explanation for the consequences of ozone depletion on Earth by planning and carrying out an investigation. Students will use analysis and interpretation of data to develop a model to explain the cause and effect of Ozone depletion on the planet Earth.

  • Renewable Energy, Radiation, Pros Cons of Nuclear Power, Combustion, Acid Rain, Radiation | High School

    Activity: Town Meeting

    In this activity, students will learn about acid rain, gas scrubbers, half-life, chain reactions, and other topics around electricity production through a debate on nuclear power.

  • Radiation, Electromagnetic Spectrum, Radiation | Middle School, High School

    Lab: The Most Effective Sunscreen

    In this lab, students will research and compare the effectiveness of various SPF levels in sunscreen lotions. The lotion’s ability to block UV (ultraviolet) radiation from the sun will be tested using a UV bead detector.    

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

    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.

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

    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.
