26 – 36 of 36 Classroom Resources

  • Naming Compounds, Molecular Formula, Covalent Bonding, Ionic Bonding, Molar Mass | High School

    Activity: Formula Card Game

    In this activity, students play a card game to practice creating chemical formulas.

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

    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.

  • Molecular Formula, Covalent Bonding, Ionic Bonding | High School

    Lab: Lego Modeling of Compounds

    In this lab, students build Lego models of ionic and covalent compounds.

  • Naming Compounds, Molecular Formula, Periodic Table, Covalent Bonding, Ionic Bonding, Valence Electrons, Subatomic Particles, Lewis Dot Diagrams, Molecular Geometry, Ions, Lewis Structures | High School, Middle School

    Activity: Simulation Activity: Ionic and Covalent Bonding

    In this 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. The simulation visually differentiates between the transferring of electrons when forming an ionic compound and the sharing of electrons when forming a covalent compound so that students can have a complete understanding of each. Finally, students will become familiar with the molecular formula, as well as the naming system for each type of bond and geometric shape, when applicable.

  • Molecular Formula, Periodic Table, Covalent Bonding, Ionic Bonding | High School

    Activity: Bondy (Rummy)

    In this activity, students play a game in which they use element cards to form compounds.

  • Physical Properties, Molecular Formula, History, Covalent Bonding, Molecular Structure, Chemical Properties | High School

    Activity: Molecule of the Week

    In this activity, students research and present a molecule they find relevant to real life, either in the past or present. They must submit notes to the teacher the day before they present their findings in five to 10 minutes to their chemistry class.

  • Covalent Bonding, VSEPR Theory, Molecular Geometry, Resonance | High School

    Activity: Shapes of Molecules

    In this activity, students will investigate the VSEPR geometry of covalent compounds. They will draw Lewis structures, use molecular models, and determine the geometry of covalent compounds. There is a lot of repetition so students gain a lot of practice.

  • Polarity, Covalent Bonding, VSEPR Theory, Molecular Geometry, Electronegativity | High School

    Lesson Plan: Polarity

    In this lesson, students learn some tips about how to determine whether a molecule is polar or nonpolar by question features about Lewis structures and symmetry.

  • Intermolecular Forces, Polarity, Covalent Bonding, Ionic Bonding, Electronegativity, Metallic Bonding | High School

    Activity: James Bonded

    In this activity, students create a video of collisions that represent chemical reactions.

  • Naming Compounds, Covalent Bonding | High School

    Lesson Plan: Naming Covalent Compounds

    In this lesson, students engage their literacy skills to interpret tables and answer a series of guiding questions to discover the rules of naming and formula writing for simple covalent compounds.

  • Periodic Table, Covalent Bonding, Ionic Bonding, Electron Configuration, Atomic Radius, Electrons, Orbitals | High School

    Activity: Planet P-10

    In this activity, students will create a periodic table using orbital rules from a planet called P-10 and identify periodic trends and bonding rules.
