Penny Perfect Properties (Solid-Liquid Interations)
7th - 12th CCSS: Designed
I can get more water to stay on a penny than you can! Collaborative pairs determine the volume of liquids that can be contained on the surface of copper pennies and plastic coins. The pairs analyze their results using graphs and go on to...
Using Modeling to Demonstrate Self-Assembly in Nanotechnology
9th - 12th
Do polar opposites attract? After an introduction on the polarity of molecules, pupils are asked to design a self-assembling model using materials with different polarity. The challenge should motivate learners to develop a workable...
Vapor Pressure and Colligative Properties
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Hate to vacuum, but enjoy using a vacuum pump? Explore a lesson that starts with a demonstration of boiling water at various temperatures by using a vacuum pump. Then scholars design their own experiments to measure vapor pressure and...
The Periodic Table and Energy-Level Models
6th - 8th CCSS: Designed
Teach your class to think of electrons as tiny packets of energy that travel in waves. Through a short video and diagram, participants see how electrons are located around the nucleus of an atom. They then get into groups and try to...
