Classroom Resources: Molecules & Bonding
26 – 34 of 34 Classroom Resources
Molecular Formula, Stoichiometry, Law of Definite Proportions, Dimensional Analysis, Mole Concept, Classification of Reactions | High School
In this lab, students will recognize that oxygen has mass and that heating can involve and increase in mass as an element reacts to become an oxide
Conservation of Matter, Chemical Change, Photosynthesis, Balancing Equations, Reversible Reactions, Molecular Formula, Molecular Structure, Conservation of Mass, Interdisciplinary, Matter, Elements, Monomer | Elementary School
In this lesson, students will explore a simple, but key, biochemical reaction: photosynthesis.
Molecular Formula, Functional Groups, Molecular Structure, Saturated vs. Unsaturated, Molecular Structure , Oxidation | High School
Explore emergency lesson plans from ChemMatters magazine.
Mole Concept, Significant Figures, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements, Scientific Notation, Molar Mass, Molecular Formula | High School
In this activity, students determine how many moles of paraffin are used when they color a piece of paper as well as how many molecules and moles of wax are in one crayon.
Molecular Formula, Periodic Table, Ionic Bonding, Covalent Bonding | High School
In this activity, students play a game in which they use element cards to form compounds.
Molecular Formula, History, Functional Groups, Covalent Bonding, Molecular Structure | High School
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, Atomic Mass, Molar Mass | High School
In this activity, students determine molecular formulas given formula masses and a limited number of atoms.
Ionic Bonding, Naming Compounds, Precipitate, Ions, Molecular Formula | Middle School
In this activity, students are assigned an ion and form bonds with their classmates, recording the formula and name of the compound they created.
Molecular Formula, Ionic Bonding, Covalent Bonding, Molecular Geometry, Naming Compounds, Lewis Structures, Periodic Table, Valence Electrons, Lewis Dot Diagrams, Ions, Subatomic Particles | High School, Middle School
In the September 2016 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. Students will become familiar with the molecular formula, as well as the naming system for each type of bond and geometric shape, when applicable.
