Classroom Resources: Molecules & Bonding
1 – 10 of 10 Classroom Resources
Ionic Bonding, Polyatomic Ions, Naming Compounds, Molecular Formula | Middle School, High School
Lesson Plan: What's in a Name? What's in a Glaze?
In this lesson students will learn about some of the chemical compounds involved in the art of pottery by practicing naming and writing formulas for ionic compounds commonly found in components of glazes for ceramics.
Mixtures, Solute & Solvent, Intermolecular Forces, Intermolecular Forces, Molecular Formula, Molecular Structure, Polymers, Electromagnetic Spectrum | Middle School, High School
Video: What is Paint? Video
This video investigates the composition of paint, while analyzing the fundamental chemistry principles of its main components. Students will learn about the differences between three common paint types, water colors, oil-based and acrylic paint as well as the chemistry of each.
Balancing Equations, Conservation of Mass, Molecular Formula | Middle School, High School
Lesson Plan: Counting Atoms & Balancing Equations
In this lesson, students will learn how to count atoms and how to balance chemical equations using videos, simulations and games.
Subatomic Particles, Model of the Atom, Elements, Molecular Formula | Middle School
Project: What's It Made Of?
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.
Molecular Structure , Molecular Structure, Molecular Formula, Naming Compounds, Chemical Bond, Interdisciplinary, Introduction | Middle School, High School
Activity: Modeling Carbohydrates
In this activity, students will identify that organic compounds contain carbon and other elements such as hydrogen and oxygen. They will investigate the structure of different organic and inorganic compounds and model several molecules, including a carbohydrate molecule. They will use their models to help understand how larger molecules are broken down into smaller molecules.
Ionic Bonding, Covalent Bonding, Polarity, Molecular Formula | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
Animation: Bonding Animation
"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**"
Molecular Formula | High School, Middle School
Lesson Plan: Valentine's Day Chemistry
In this lesson, students learn about the chemistry of love. They see chemical structures of compounds involved in the biological process of love and learn about some of the chemical changes associated with love.
Molecular Formula, Ionic Bonding, Covalent Bonding | High School, Middle School
Activity: Simulation Activity: Ionic and Covalent Bonding
In this simulation, students investigate both ionic and covalent bonding. Students will have the opportunity to interact with many possible combinations of atoms and will be tasked with determining the type of bond and the number of atom needed to form each. The simulation visually differentiates between the transferring of electrons when forming an ionic compound and the sharing of electrons when forming a covalent compound so that students can have a complete understanding of each. Finally, students will become familiar with the molecular formula, as well as the naming system for each type of bond and geometric shape, when applicable.
Photosynthesis, Conservation of Mass, Balancing Equations, Chemical Change, Reversible Reactions, Molecular Formula, Interdisciplinary, Chemical Change, Conservation of Mass | Middle School
Lesson Plan: The Building Blocks of Photosynthesis
In this lesson, students will use colored blocks to represent the elements in photosynthesis and illustrate how they are broken down and reassembled to create glucose.
Ionic Bonding, Naming Compounds, Precipitate, Ions, Molecular Formula | Middle School
Activity: Bond with a Classmate
In this activity, students are assigned an ion and form bonds with their classmates, recording the formula and name of the compound they created.
