Introduce your chemistry novices to the oxygen-containing compounds. Viewers of this presentation will learn how to identify and name alcohols, phenols, thiols, and ethers. They will also learn that combustion and dehydration are reactions of alcohols. The diagrams of molecules in these compounds are clear and the overall appearance is bold and bright. Together these qualities make the PowerPoint both educational and pleasing to the eye.
Biology classes will bubble with excitement as they complete this assignment. Beginning with an informative overview of cellular respiration and fermentation processes, the highlight comes as an experiment in determining the rate of alcoholic fermentation in yeast. This is accomplished by providing various concentrations of sucrose solution and measuring the amount of carbon dioxide produced during respiration. This lab sheet will keep young scientists organized and on-task.
High schoolers analyze ads and learn about the effects of alcohol. Note that the PowerPoint mentioned in the procedure is not included, so you will need to prepare your own presentation. After the lecture, segue into fetal alcohol syndrome. Your class will research physical and emotional characteristics of this birth defect.

In groups, they research how drugs and alcohol affect the body in terms of getting the nutritional values that it needs to be healthy. They also discuss how emotions and their self-worth can affect their likelihood in using drugs and alcohol.
Twelve pages of text tells viewers about the physical properties and naming procedures for alcohols and ethers. A page is also dedicated to briefly describing phenols. This straightforward chemistry presentation comes to you as a PDF file. Use it as a note-taking guide for your charges when lecturing on these compounds.
