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.
Benzene rings are characteristic of organic aromatic compounds. Viewers of this presentation learn how to draw the molecular structure and name the aromatics. This, along with other Chemguy videos, is simple, straightforward, and accurate. It cannot replace your personal instruction, but it can be used to teach absent learners or as a lesson for your flipped classroom.
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.
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.
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 instructional activity, students write the IUPAC names for given aromatic compounds and they draw line formulas for eight aromatics.
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.
Nine action-packed organic chemistry exercises are contained in this mini-unit on carbon containing compounds. Examples include constructing models of alkanes, producing aromatic esters, and preparing pigments for paint and dyes. Chemistry scholars learn to write molecular formulas and draw structures for carbon compounds. Because of the complexity of the activities and level of skills required, this would not be recommended for first-year chemistry classes. It is, however, a superior resource!
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.
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.
Familiarize your class with the benzene derivative compounds. Some Sal will recommend memorizing, while others are mainly presented as practice for naming.
New! Pasta Genetics
Four different-shaped and dyed pasta types represent four different alleles. Following a guide sheet, young geneticists practice randomly selecting alleles and discover the traits of the resulting offspring. This is a fun and solid introductory activity for life science learners.
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.
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!
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.
