Instructional Ideas

Rather than give this to your class to play with, you can incorporate the images or videos into your lesson on any of the three matter-related subjects. Use the Quiz and Learn section as a class review to assess understanding.

If your young chemists speak English as a second language, allow them to spend time in the Read and Learn sections with the narration on to familiarize them with the terminology.

Classroom Considerations

If you prefer to have this application on a mobile device as a learning center, you may want to create a worksheet to guide users. They may lose interest quickly otherwise.
