Classroom Resources: Molecules & Bonding
1 – 6 of 6 Classroom Resources
Physical Properties, Solubility, Polarity, Covalent Bonding, Intermolecular Forces, Molecular Geometry, Electronegativity | Middle School, High School
In this lesson, students will watch a video and answer questions about how the molecular geometry and polarity of water give rise to many of its unusual physical properties, including its relatively high boiling point and its ability to dissolve some substances but not others.
Mixtures, Solubility, Intermolecular Forces, Polarity, Solute & Solvent, Intermolecular Forces, Molecular Geometry | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
In an animation, students will have an opportunity to visualize on the particulate level how solubility works. Examples of ionic compounds and a polar covalent compound show how when water is attracted to charged parts, they dissolve, and when they're not attracted to charged parts they stay solid. **This video has no audio**
Polarity, Molecular Formula, Covalent Bonding, Ionic Bonding | Elementary School, Middle School, High 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**"
Chemical Change, Intermolecular Forces, Polarity, Polymers, Molecular Structure, Intermolecular Forces, Scientific Method, Monomer | Middle School
In this lesson, students will learn about how polymers, specifically superabsorbent polymers, work. Through lab activities, students will investigate polymer properties.
Physical Change, Intermolecular Forces, Polarity, Physical Change, Intermolecular Forces, Matter | Middle School
In this lesson, students will investigate the properties of magic sand and learn about the concept of hydrophobic and hydrophilic molecules. It also introduced students to the field of nanotechnology.
Observations, Physical Properties, Mixtures, Intermolecular Forces, Polarity, Intermolecular Forces, Mixtures | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
In this lab, students mix polar and nonpolar substances and then add various emulsifiers to encourage the mixing of the two substances. They use ingredients in salad dressing to relate science to real life scenarios.
