FREE SCIENCE LESSON - “43 Student-Centered [Distance] Chemistry Learning Experiences - 1st Sem PREVIEW”

by Lab In Every Lesson
9th - 12th Grade

This 57-page catalog includes learning intentions, success criteria, vocabulary, technology links, and student-centered commentary for 43 learning experiences in chemistry, comprising an entire [first] semester of the course. Topics include reasons to study chemistry, the scientific method, basic chemistry terminology, the periodic table, physical and chemical properties, mass, volume, density, states of matter, kinetic molecular theory, forces of attraction, temperature, direction of heat flow and phase change, physical / chemical change and chemical equations, chemical reactions and equations, the laws of conservation, the scientists of atomic history, the experiments of atomic history, atomic number, mass number, isotopes, average atomic mass, radioactivity, half-life, Bohr’s model of the atom, atomic size trends, filling Aufbau diagrams, writing electron configurations, writing electron configurations using a periodic table shortcut, the octet rule, ionization energy, predicting ion charge, the periodic law, types of chemical bonding (covalent, ionic and metallic), properties of salts, molecules & metals, polyatomic ions, salt formation & chemical formulas, predicting products using the criss-cross shortcut, naming salts containing monatomic & polyatomic ions, naming conventions and chemical formulas for covalent molecules, Lewis structures for Molecules, Molecule Shapes, Introduction to intermolecular forces, electronegativity, bond polarity, molecule polarity, and classifying types of intermolecular forces.

Though this resource is not a collection of complete classroom lessons, it does describe the lesson PowerPoints and digital, distance learning lessons which will post to my store within the coming weeks. It is perfect for physical science or chemistry teachers who are looking for ideas as they contemplate how they might (1) create a more student-centered environment in their classroom and/or (2) deliver complex content in a coherent way to achieve deep learning in a virtual classroom.

Each learning experience outlined uses technology to prompt a scientific-method-based investigation that builds critical thinking skills and provides the potential to produce artifacts that can be used to demonstrate learning and mastery. The technologies outlined are free, easily accessible and compliment diverse learning styles. In this free, preview catalog, suggestions for guided questions and/or graphic organizers are not included.

A complete edition is available for purchase.
