Classroom Resources: Molecules & Bonding
1 – 5 of 5 Classroom Resources
Elements, Molecular Formula, Model of the Atom, Subatomic Particles | Middle School, Elementary 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.
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**
History, Periodic Table, Molecular Structure, Molecular Structure , Molecular Geometry | 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.
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**"
Observations, Physical Properties, Introduction, Polymers | Elementary School
In this activity, students explore the chemical reaction between borax and glue, creating a polymer ball. The properties of the polymer ball will be analyzed and compared to a store bought bouncy ball.
