Making models is always memorable. In this activity, physical science starters examine the structure of hydrocarbons using marshmallows, raisins, and toothpicks. They even act as atoms themselves and link arms to represent covalent bonds. The instructional activity is simple to execute, but superb in results!

Investigation: Chemical Models
Science teams make models of four different hydrocarbon compounds that we commonly use for fuel. Then they demonstrate chemical reactions that result when energy is produced. This can be used as an enrichment when your class is studying forms of energy.

Models of Hydrocarbons
High schoolers construct models of hydrocarbon molecules using candy and toothpicks. In this hydrocarbons lesson plan, students are given a sheet with the molecular formulas of hydrocarbons. As a group, they construct each molecule using colored gumdrops to represent each atom and toothpicks to represent each bond.

Lab: Determining the Number of Moles and Molecules Used Up In a Burning Candle
Students find moles and molecules used when a candle burns. In this moles and molecules lesson plan, students calculate the initial mass of a candle and the mass of a candle after it burns for 3 minutes. They calculate the mass lost when the candle was burning and determine the number of moles and molecules of hydrocarbons used in the chemical reaction.
