Demonstrations Purpose These demonstrations allow students to observe a wide variety of chemical reactions, most of which should not be performed by students for safety reasons. Be sure to keep students actively involved by directing them to make observations and consider questions during demonstrations. They could be asked to write down observations.

Systems Thinking Games Systems Thinking Games, developed in partnership with Filament Games, are designed to be used by youth and educators to assess systems thinking skills both in the classroom and in afterschool contexts. A precursor to the GlassLab, this project brings together teachers, assessment experts and game designers and developers to collaboratively design and build a suite of games with data tools that support teachers in evaluating the way players approach problem-solving, and the strategies players use in understanding and interacting with complex systems. Currently, research is underway to develop assessment frameworks that yield valid and reliable assessment measures across the suite of digital games.

Path to the Periodic Table Lesson Overview This activity allows students to re-create the thought process that Dmitri Mendeleev and Julius Lothar Meyer went through to devise their early periodic tables. The students are given cards (provided at the end of the teacher activity page), each with the name of an element, its symbol, and some properties. Lesson on Calculating the Post-Mortem Interval Courtesy of Patti Bertino’s email post. The postmortem interval (PMI), also known as a time since death estimate, aids forensic scientists in death investigations. This lesson will introduce your students to the processes of decay and decomposition, forensic pathology, and forensic entomology. The lesson includes several video lectures, animations, and worksheet exercises with practical applications to explain the concept of PMI and accumulated degree hours (ADH). Intended Grade level11-12; content is intended for mature audiences
EDU The "Digital Lab Techniques Manual" is a series of videos designed to help you prepare for your chemistry laboratory class. Each video provides a detailed demonstration of a common laboratory technique, as well as helpful tips and information. These videos are meant to supplement, and not replace, your lab manual and assigned reading. In fact, you will most benefit from watching the videos if you have already read the appropriate background information. To be a great experimentalist, you must understand both theory and technique!
beyond benign : green chemistry curriculum Green Chemistry Online Course for Educators Green Chemistry is the science of creating safe, energy efficient and non-toxic products and processes and offers a concrete path towards solving the environmental problems our society faces today. This course begins with an introduction to the 12 principles of green chemistry and then concentrates on the exploration and creation of green chemistry lesson plan materials. Educational resources that are proven vehicles for bringing green chemistry concepts to high school students will be introduced.
theconversation When we say “salt”, we usually mean the stuff we sprinkle on our chips, which is sodium chloride (NaCl). But, technically speaking, this is just one example of a salt. Molecules that have an electrical charge are called ions. Those with a positive charge are cations, and those with a negative charge are anions. They’re like the opposite ends of a magnet, so anions attract cations.
