Edible Glass

A nine-page narrative gives you the material needed to teach high schoolers about molecular structure, in particular, that of sugars. You may want to display the accompanying molecule diagrams through a projector to increase understanding. After the lecture, learners go to the lab to calibrate a thermometer and combine sugar, corn syrup, butter, and boiling water to concoct a sweet confection. This is a tasty activity in thermodynamics or the structure of saccharides.

Lesson Planet has given me more time to teach and plan thoughtful lessons rather than spending that time scouring the Internet for resources and just throwing study guides at students!
