Classroom Resources: Molecules & Bonding
76 – 87 of 87 Classroom Resources
Naming Compounds, Ionic Bonding | High School
In this activity, students will construct ionic compounds by balancing the charges on cations and anions.
Polymers, Polymers | High School
In this activity, students will discover how the entanglement in cooked spaghetti depends on the length of the spaghetti strands and relate this discovery to polymeric materials.
Molecular Formula, Functional Groups | High School
Explore emergency lesson plans from ChemMatters magazine.
Molecular Formula, Periodic Table, Covalent Bonding, Ionic Bonding | High School
In this activity, students play a game in which they use element cards to form compounds.
Molecular Structure, Molecular Structure | High School
In this lesson students will explore the world of automobile alternative energy sources through the study of biofuels. They will design and create an e-book that illustrates and explains one of the provided topics or an original idea approved by the teacher.
Physical Properties, Mixtures, Molecular Structure, Mixture | High School, Middle School, Elementary School
In this demonstration, the teacher will create a sequence of mixtures in a single test tube. Water, oil, food coloring and soap will be used in this demonstration to introduce the concepts of heterogeneous and homogeneous solutions as well as the idea of miscibility. Students will also have the opportunity to analyze the properties, such as surface tension of each component used.
Molecular Formula, History, Functional Groups | 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.
Naming Compounds, Covalent Bonding | High School
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.
Naming Compounds | High School
From this reference, students will gain a better understanding of how to name compounds.
Polarity | High School
In this demo, students investigate the polarity of water using static generated by various materials.
Molecular Formula, Atomic Mass | High School
In this activity, students determine molecular formulas given formula masses and a limited number of atoms.
Gas Laws, Molar Mass | High School
In this lab, students will use gas laws to calculate the molar mass of dry ice and then use the information to identify the compound that makes up this substance.
