1 – 4 of 4 Classroom Resources

  • Solubility, Physical Change, Phase Changes, Reaction Rate, Solute & Solvent, Molecular Motion | Elementary School

    Lesson Plan: Particles in Motion

    In this lesson, students learn that particles that make up matter are in constant motion.

  • Observations, Chemical Change, Physical Change, Inferences, Physical Change, Identifying an Unknown, Solute & Solvent | Elementary School

    Lesson Plan: Alien Invasion?

    In this lesson, students will explore both physical and chemical changes as they try to help the Department of Homeland Security analyze and identify materials found in a mysterious capsule. Students will examine and observe an unknown object (a frozen water balloon) as it changes (melts). They then mix combinations of everyday substances to observe chemical changes.

  • Separating Mixtures, Mixtures, Physical Change, Physical Change, Phase Changes, Introduction, Interdisciplinary, Distillation, Solute & Solvent, Mixtures | Elementary School

    Lesson Plan: Now I Can Drink the Water!

    In this lesson, students review important concepts of the water cycle and then design, test, and evaluate a working model of a desalination plant (a distiller).

  • Physical Change, Intermolecular Forces, Polarity, Physical Change, Molecular Motion, Molecular Motion, Intermolecular Forces

    Simulation: Comparing Attractive Forces

    <p>In the <a href="https://www.teachchemistry.org/content/aact/en/periodical/issues/november-2014.html">November 2014</a> issue, students explore the different attractive foreces between pairs of molecules by dragging the "star" image. In the accompanying activity, students investigate different types of intermolecular forces (London dispersion and dipole-dipole). In the analysis that follows the investigation, they relate IMFs (including hydrogen bonding) to physical properties (boiling point and solubility).</p>
