Discuss the stability of an aromatic benzene ring that has other things attached, such as halides or OH groups. Sal's video details the substitution reaction and the behavior of the strong electrophile initiating the reaction. He provides diagrams of the electrophile behavior and relatively stable carbocations. Additionally, the video shows how a ring stabilizes after bonding, which will be very useful for your class.
In this aromatic compounds learning exercise, students write the IUPAC names for given aromatic compounds and they draw line formulas for molecules.
In this compounds worksheet, students write the IUPAC names for given aromatic compounds and they draw line formulas for eight aromatics.
In this aromatic systems worksheet, students draw the structures of the given compounds and name compounds shown. Students complete the reactions given. This worksheet has 4 problems to solve.
In this chemistry worksheet, students write the structures for the compounds illustrated on the sheet. Then they name the compounds whose structures are illustrated in part two. Students also fill in the blanks to complete the paragraph on compounds.
If you need a straightforward and comprehensive organic chemistry exam, check this one out. Chemistry pupils identify functional groups in molecule diagrams, draw a Lewis structure, fill in a table about molecular shape, predict boiling point and solubility, and more! There are 12 questions to address in all. Both a periodic table and list of characteristic infrared absorptions are provided for test takers.
Third graders read the story The Stolen Smell, and complete language arts activities based on the book. In this The Stolen Smell lesson plan, 3rd graders complete activities such as discussion, reading, researching, drawing, role playing, public speaking, and vocabulary work.
Students explore landscape design. In this practical gardening lesson, students design landscape plans that call for shrubs, trees, and plants that can be used for aesthetics, cooking, and wildlife.
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.
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.
Familiarize your class with the benzene derivative compounds. Some Sal will recommend memorizing, while others are mainly presented as practice for naming.
Starting with a diagram of a concrete example of electrophilic aromatic substitution, this video recaps diagrams of the electrophile behavior and how they "attack" relatively stable carbocations.
A collection of 16 different chemistry crosswords provides variety in the ways that your class reviews chemistry vocabulary and concepts. Because the topics for each range from the introductory periodic table of elements to the complex energetics and kinetics, this resource is valuable to middle school and high school teachers alike. Each puzzle is comprehensive in coverage and has anywhere from 12 to 36 questions to answer. Add this to your library of review tools. US teachers, be aware that there are British spellings for some terms. In most cases, the US spelling requires the same number of letters as the British, so this shouldn't be a problem.
You will need to go to the National Center for Biotechnology Information website to obtain the article, "In Katrina's Wake." Have your class read it and examine maps of where toxic chemicals were located in Louisiana at the time, taking note of the health concerns that have arisen as a result. A worksheet guides learners through the exercise. Although the hurricane occurred in 2005, the lesson plan is valuable as an example of a public health issue or an examination of the aftermath of extreme weather phenomena. 
Pretest knowledge of seeds and fruits. Work through four on-paper activities about seed quality. Experiment using three different methods for germinating three different types of seeds and calculate percentage. Take a post-test to demonstrate what was learned. These assignments are laid out for your secondary agriculture or botany class. You may need to adjust formatting a little bit.
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.
Students explain the role of different organisms in the food web. In this ecology lesson, students participate in a game to simulate mineral cycling through the web. They discuss the importance of recycling minerals and resources.
Students 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.
Students discover the different types of hazardous waste. They examine ways to dispose of the hazardous materials safely and without harming the environment.
Believe it or not, this is a 76-page series of lesson plans published by the California Commission on Agriculture which is designed to teach upper-elementary learners about agricultural practices and products in the state. There are two sections, one for grades 3-4, and one for grades 5-6. The lessons are chock full of great group activities, worksheets, assignments, extension activities, quizzes, homework assignments, and more. Don't miss this resource!
