Public health trainees read and write a summary of the article, "A Whiff of Danger". The article is not available through the link, but can be found on the National Center for Biotechnology Information website. After summarizing, learners consult a chart of musk chemicals and answer questions about molecular weight, chemical structure, and more. The complexity of the material makes it most appropriate for high school or college chemistry courses.
In this chemistry worksheet, students identify which has the highest boiling point, as well as the lowest. Then they identify which compound is least soluble in water and why. Students also classify each of the compounds listed on the sheet.
Chemistry scholars learn to identify and name cycloalkane and benzene structures. The diagrams used to demonstrate are distinct and the explanations are clear. Learning check and solution slides are embedded within the presentation. This coherent PowerPoint is a valuable addition to your collection of chemistry resources.
Junior geologists work through three mini-lessons that familiarize them with the formation and location of fossil fuels. Part one involves reading about petroleum and where it comes from via a thorough set of handouts. A lab activity follows in part two, in which investigators experiment with the sedimentation of different sized particles. In part three, they will examine maps of the distribution of oil deposits throughout the New York region. Use any one or all three terrific activities as part of your earth science curriculum.
Geology whizzes observe the effects of change within a model of a watershed. They place replica waste dumps within the models and note the path that the waste takes as water passes through. This detailed lesson plan provides teacher narrative, instructions for building the watershed model, discussion questions, and more! If you have the time for this elaborate hands-on experience, it will be worth your while!
Learners research the properties and health risks of organic chemical solvents. They create a Safety with Solvents newsletter to share with others in their school and community.
In this chemistry worksheet, students determine the order of reactivity toward displacement in each of the series listed. Then they respond to several multiple choice questions as they relate to compounds and solutions. Students also identify various products from each of the sequence of reactions listed.
Students examine the properties in oil in water. In this mixture lesson, students read about the Lophelia II 2010: Cold Seeps and Deep Reef Expedition and look at images of deep sea ecosystems. They experiment or participate in demonstrations of how water behaves in water. They draw conclusions from the information on the student recording sheet.
Here are the instructions for leading your advanced chemists though the process of measuring the nonvolatile components in a sample of paint. No student handout is provided, so you may want to create one based on the procedure explained. This is a terrific activity for teaching chemists how safely handle volatile materials or for calculating percent mass.
Learners examine the impact of a major climate change in the Arctic Ocean on the rest of the world. They use the Internet to research the Arctic region and the wildlife that lives there.
Young scholars investigate the social, economic and environmental consequences that might result from Arctic climate change. Students identify and discuss at least three consequences.
Young scholars work in teams to synthesize their air, asthma, air contamination, and environmental health knowledge as well as additional research to represent a particular point of view persuasively. They create a handout and presentatin materials to help communicate this knowledge and point of view. Pupils use these materials, to practice public speaking to present their work.
Eighth graders examine the characteristic of Long Island Sound. In groups, they use the internet to describe how the Sound formed and what environmental changes have altered it. They also discover what humans have done to affect the Sound and what can be done to correct the problems. To end the lesson, they develop their own plan to reverse the damages made by humans.
In this organic molecules worksheet, students classify organic compounds, they name organic compounds using the IUPAC naming system, they complete chemical reactions of organic compounds, and they draw structural formulas of isomers.
Technology tutees read a description about coconuts and how they are used to make biodiesel fuel. Note that the link to the article does not work, and the article does not appear to be available online. There are, if you look for one, plenty of sources of information about the use of coconuts in biofuels. In this math-based lesson high schoolers will calculate greenhouse gas emissions, convert liters to miles, and calculate annual cost of fuel.
Students explore tobacco smoking and the impact it has on society. In this health lesson students complete several experiments on smoking and lung cancer.
Young scholars explore chemiluminescence through various experiments. In this chemistry lesson, students explain the chemical reaction that drives the process. They give real life applications of chemiluminescence.
Students write out sources of pollution and identify contaminants are most likely found in urban runoff. In this pollution lesson students compare toxicity tests and chemical analysis of potential contaminants.
Students explore polymers by designing and preparing an inexpensive and effective reusable ice pack. They develop and test a design for a reusable ice pack in the science lab. Students apply chemical and physical properties of polymers and their uses while creating the ice pack.
Carbon as a building block for organic compounds is demonstrated by diagrams and facts for its bonding style. Saturated and unstaturated hydrocarbons are detailed and facts about biological compounds such as proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates, and lipids are shown along with a few images. the slides have summaries, but not explanations of this complex topic and so this PowerPoint would be best suited to accompanying a lecture.
