The Cartoon Guide to Chemistry
In this issue, we feature the chemistry comic works of Larry Gonick, author and illustrator of, "The Cartoon Guide to Chemistry." Entertaining and educational, these cartoons bring to life and engage students in chemistry topics. Gonick has kindly shared with the AACT community two excerpts from his book (below). In the AACT resource library, lessons by middle school teachers Beverly Keane and Mark Sheridan use other parts of the book to help teach chemistry concepts. Check out their lessons: Is A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words and Periodic Puzzler.
