Classroom Resources: Molecules & Bonding
1 – 6 of 6 Classroom Resources
Molecular Structure, Covalent Bonding, Molecular Formula, Review, Atoms | Middle School, Elementary School
In this activity, students will make several different molecules out of four types of atoms: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen in an online game. In order to be successful, the student must move a beaker on the screen to catch the correct type and number of atoms needed to form a particular molecule. Students can score points by making as many correct molecules as possible in a given amount of time.
Physical Properties, Molecular Structure, Polarity | Middle School, Elementary School, High School
In this activity, students will become familiar with the special properties of water by completing several activities that investigate the following physical properties/phenomena: cohesion, adhesion, surface tension, and capillary action.
Molecular Structure, Molecular Geometry, History, Periodic Table, Molecular Structure | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
In this video, Sam Kean tells the story of how phosphorus was at the center of the race to discover the structure of DNA.
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.
Mixtures, Physical Properties, Molecular Structure, Mixtures | Elementary School, Middle School, High 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.
Chemical Bond, Molecular Structure, Atoms, Elements, Matter, Interdisciplinary, Naming Compounds | Elementary School
In this lesson, students explore the structure of matter by designing, building, comparing, and evaluating models of a variety of simple molecules.
