Dimensional Analysis, Measurements, Review  Middle School, High School
Activity: Dimensional Analysis Show Down
In this activity students will work cooperatively to solve conversion based problems using dimensional analysis. Students are required to independently determine an answer for each question and be able explain their method of solving with their peers. This activity is designed to allow students to work at their own pace, and for students to take on a teaching role by communicating their understanding with their peers.

Conservation of Mass, Observations, History, Measurements, SI Units  Middle School, High School
Activity: Lavoisier Video Questions
In this activity, students will watch a video about Antoine Lavoisier, who many consider to be the father of modern chemistry. They will answer questions as they learn about oxygen, hydrogen, and the first proposal of the Law of the Conservation of Mass.

Mole Concept, Measurements, History  High School
Activity: Avogadro Video Questions
In this activity, students will watch a video about Amedeo Avogadro and answer related questions. They will learn that he is the scientist given credit for the mole concept and that he also made several other discoveries in chemistry.

Temperature, History, Physical Properties, Measurements, SI Units, Accuracy  Elementary School, Middle School, High School
Activity: Temperature Guys Video Questions
In this activity, students will watch a video and answer questions about how both the thermometer and the concept of temperature evolved over time

Measurements, SI Units, Significant Figures, Accuracy  Middle School, High School
Simulation: Measuring Volume
In this simulation, students will participate in a 10 question quiz. The quiz questions are each made of two parts, with the first part requiring the student to analyze an image of a graduated cylinder in order to report an accurate measurement. Students must use the correct number of digits based on the markings presented on the cylinder when reporting the measurement. In the second portion of the question the students will determine the uncertainty value of the graduated cylinder, again by analyzing its markings. The simulation is made up of several different sizes of graduated cylinders, each containing unique markings, so students will be challenged to analyze each individually.

Temperature, History, Accuracy, Physical Properties  Elementary School, Middle School, High School
Video: The Temperature Guys Video
This video tells the story of how temperature as we currently know it evolved. The first thermometers invented in the early 1600s are very different than ones we use today!

Limiting Reactant, Conservation of Mass, Stoichiometry, Mole Concept  High School
Animation: Limiting Reactant Animation
This animation explores what happens in a limiting reactant problem on the particulate level. Assembling a bike is used as an analogy to introduce the concept of limiting reactant, and then the balanced equation of the combustion of methane is used in four quantitative examples to show what it means for a chemical to be a limiting reactant. The concept of the conservation of mass is also demonstrated by calculating masses from the mole quantities of the reactants and products. **This video has no audio**

Density, Matter, Physical Properties, Measurements  Elementary School, Middle School, High School
Animation: Density Animation
This animation explores density on the particulate level. There are opportunities to make qualitative and quantitative comparisons between substances. **This video has no audio**

Conservation of Mass, History, Observations, Measurements, SI Units  Elementary School, Middle School, High School
Video: Antoine Lavoisier Video
This video tells the story of Antoine Lavoisier who many consider to be the father or modern chemistry. Lavoisier discovered oxygen and hydrogen and first proposed the Law of Conservation of Mass.

Mole Concept, Measurements, History, Ideal Gas, Gas Laws  High School
Video: Amedeo Avogadro Video
This video tells the story of Amedeo Avogadro, the scientist given credit for the mole concept, but who discovered other things in chemistry too.

Dimensional Analysis  High School, Middle School
Activity: Unit Conversion Online Tutorial
In this activity, students will interact with a webbased tutorial that uses a drag and drop interface in order to learn how to convert between units of measurement using dimensional analysis. The tutorial allows students to learn at their own pace, and also provides feedback while they are solving problems.

Limiting Reactant, Stoichiometry, Balancing Equations, Mole Concept, Dimensional Analysis, Molar Mass  High School
Activity: Sweet Stoichiometry Reactions
In this activity, students will use candy to investigate stoichiometry and molegram relationships in chemical equations, but could also be used to introduce the concept of limiting reactants.

Solute & Solvent, Molarity, Tyndall Effect, Concentration, Stoichiometry, Dimensional Analysis, Mole Concept  High School
Activity: Solubility & Solutions
In this inquiry activity, students investigate types of solutions, identifying the solute and solvent, and classifying each solution. They them solve stoichiometry problems involving solutions of different concentrations.

Kinetic Molecular Theory, Pressure, Gas Laws, Volume, Temperature, SI Units, Molecular Motion  High School, Middle School
Activity: Simulation Activity: Gas Law Variables
In this simulation, students investigate variables of a gas. From the computer models, they can see how pressure, temperature, and volume effect gas behavior.
