Classroom Resources: Molecules & Bonding
1 – 10 of 10 Classroom Resources
Polyatomic Ions, Naming Compounds, Molecular Formula, Ionic Bonding | High School, Middle School
In this lesson students will learn about some of the chemical compounds involved in the art of pottery by practicing naming and writing formulas for ionic compounds commonly found in components of glazes for ceramics.
Mixtures, Intermolecular Forces, Molecular Formula, Polymers, Molecular Structure, Solute & Solvent, Intermolecular Forces, Electromagnetic Spectrum | High School, Middle School
This video investigates the composition of paint, while analyzing the fundamental chemistry principles of its main components. Students will learn about the differences between three common paint types, water colors, oil-based and acrylic paint as well as the chemistry of each.
Molecular Formula, Balancing Equations, Conservation of Mass | High School, Middle School
In this lesson, students will learn how to count atoms and how to balance chemical equations using videos, simulations and games.
Elements, Molecular Formula, Model of the Atom, Subatomic Particles | Middle School
In this project each student will conduct research to discover what compounds, molecules, and elements make up a basic everyday object of their choice. The student will create a poster detailing what the object is made of, including a Bohr model. The student will also create a question about their object’s atomic structure for their peers as part of a culminating project gallery walk to observe, discuss, and learn about each poster.
Naming Compounds, Introduction, Interdisciplinary, Molecular Formula, Molecular Structure, Molecular Structure , Chemical Bond | High School, Middle School
In this activity, students will identify that organic compounds contain carbon and other elements such as hydrogen and oxygen. They will investigate the structure of different organic and inorganic compounds and model several molecules, including a carbohydrate molecule. They will use their models to help understand how larger molecules are broken down into smaller molecules.
Polarity, Molecular Formula, Covalent Bonding, Ionic Bonding | High School, Middle School, Elementary School
"In this animation, students will visualize how different chemical bonds form. Examples of ionic, covalent, and polar covalent bonds are animated, and then students are given a sample of compounds to predict the bonding types. **This video has no audio**"
Molecular Formula | Middle School, High School
In this lesson, students learn about the chemistry of love. They see chemical structures of compounds involved in the biological process of love and learn about some of the chemical changes associated with love.
Molecular Formula, Covalent Bonding, Ionic Bonding | Middle School, High School
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.
Chemical Change, Interdisciplinary, Molecular Formula, Conservation of Mass, Balancing Equations, Conservation of Mass, Reversible Reactions, Chemical Change, Photosynthesis | Middle School
In this lesson, students will use colored blocks to represent the elements in photosynthesis and illustrate how they are broken down and reassembled to create glucose.
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.
