Lesson Plan: The Discovery of Fullerenes
In this lesson, students will learn about a class of compounds called fullerenes through a reading about their discovery. Metric conversions, organic chemistry, and allotropes are all touched on in this lesson. There are a series of activities to help promote literacy in the science classroom related to the reading. This lesson could be easily used as plans for a substitute teacher, as most of the activities are selfguided.

Lesson Plan: The Chemistry Basics and Measurement Quick Start Unit Plan
This Quick Start Unit Plan includes all the materials that a teacher will need for the first 10 class meetings of the school year. Each day is outlined with teacher notes, and includes slide presentations as well as directions for demonstrations, activities and labs to use. The fundamental topics covered in the 10 days of lessons are: laboratory safety, laboratory equipment, experimental design, classification of matter, chemical properties, physical properties, chemical change, physical change, phase changes, separation techniques, dimensional analysis, unit conversions, factor label method, accuracy, precision, significant figures, and percent error calculations. This Quick Start Unit plan aims to help students to build a foundation of understanding, and master important topics before moving deeper into the chemistry curriculum.

Scientific Notation, Measurements  Middle School
Activity: Scientific Notation Practice
In this activity, students will learn about the importance of scientific notation to the science community. Through guided practice problems, students will be introduced to scientific notation and learn how to convert values into scientific notation.

Atomic Radius, Scientific Notation, Measurements  Middle School, High School
Activity: Powers of 10  How Small Is an Atom?
In this activity, students will use an online interactive to investigate the size of an atom, and compare the size of the atom to other objects using scientific notation.

Measurements, Error Analysis, Scientific Notation, Density, Identifying an Unknown  Middle School
Lab: A Chemistry Calculation Challenge
Students will apply their knowledge to solve four challenging chemistrybased calculation problems involving mass, volume, density, and number of molecules.

Measurements, Scientific Notation, Significant Figures, Subatomic Particles  High School
Activity: Quantitatively Puzzling
In this activity, students will analyze sixteen chemistrybased clues and use the numbers, zero through fifteen as possible answer choices for each one. The clues cover content related to measurement, scientific notation, significant digits, atomic structure and the periodic table.

Dimensional Analysis, Measurements, Scientific Notation, Significant Figures  High School
Activity: Chemistry is Out of This World
In this activity, students will use data from the NASA Science Solar System Exploration website to practice dimensional analysis calculations. This resource was created for National Chemistry Week (NCW) 2018 theme, Chemistry is Out of This World, which focuses on the chemistry of and in outer space.

Measurements, Dimensional Analysis, SI Units, Percent Composition, Scientific Notation, Significant Figures, Accuracy, Density  High School
Lesson Plan: Chemical Measurement Unit Plan
The AACT High School Classroom Resource library has everything you need to put together a unit plan for your classroom: lessons, activities, labs, projects, videos, simulations, and animations. We constructed a unit plan for introducing concepts student need to collect and use chemical measurements: Percent Composition, Metric Units, Accuracy and Precision, Percent Error, Density, Scientific Notation, Significant Figures, and Unit Conversion. This unit is designed to be used at beginning of the school year and modified based on student math abilities.

Scientific Notation, Dimensional Analysis, SI Units  High School
Lesson Plan: Using Scientific Notation in Chemistry
In this lesson, students will solve a variety of realworld problems using scientific notation. Students will listen to a convoluted radio conversation about coffee which will relate to a mathbased problem that this lesson is developed around. Students will begin to recognize the benefits of using scientific notation in their calculations.

Scientific Notation  High School, Middle School
Activity: Scientific Notation
In this activity, students are actively involved in putting numbers into scientific notation and taking numbers out of scientific notation.

Mole Concept, Significant Figures, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements, Scientific Notation, Molar Mass, Molecular Formula  High School
Activity: Can You Color A Mole?
In this activity, students determine how many moles of paraffin are used when they color a piece of paper as well as how many molecules and moles of wax are in one crayon.
