Classroom Resources: Molecules & Bonding
126 – 137 of 137 Classroom Resources
Molecular Formula, History, Covalent Bonding, Molecular Structure, 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, Molar Mass, Atomic Mass | High School
In this activity, students determine molecular formulas given formula masses and a limited number of atoms.
Observations, Density, Temperature, Gas Laws, Density, Pressure, Physical Change, Identifying an Unknown, Molar Mass, Ideal Gas, Volume, Error Analysis | 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.
Naming Compounds, Elements, Interdisciplinary, Atoms, Molecular Structure, Matter, Chemical Bond | Elementary School
In this lesson, students explore the structure of matter by designing, building, comparing, and evaluating models of a variety of simple molecules.
Physical Properties, Periodic Table, Identifying an Unknown, Atomic Radius, Ionization Energy, Electronegativity | High School
In this activity, students will use their knowledge of Periodic Trends to analyze and identify unknown elements and organize them correctly in the Periodic Table.
Percent Composition, Introduction, Percent Composition, Scientific Method | Middle School
In this lesson, students will develop a theory of how to calculate percent composition.
Naming Compounds, Molecular Formula, Precipitate, Ionic Bonding, Ions | 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.
Naming Compounds, Molecular Formula, Periodic Table, Covalent Bonding, Ionic Bonding, Valence Electrons, Subatomic Particles, Lewis Dot Diagrams, Molecular Geometry, Ions, Lewis Structures | Middle School, High 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.
Physical Change, Intermolecular Forces, Polarity, Physical Change, Molecular Motion, Molecular Motion, Intermolecular Forces
In the November 2014 issue, students explore the different attractive foreces between pairs of molecules by dragging the "star" image. In the accompanying activity, students investigate different types of intermolecular forces (London dispersion and dipole-dipole). In the analysis that follows the investigation, they relate IMFs (including hydrogen bonding) to physical properties (boiling point and solubility).
