This lesson is an introduction to atoms and molecules, with great emphasis placed on the difference between elements and compounds. Students are introduced to the concept that elements can combine together to form compounds with unlike properties. (Such as when hydrogen and oxygen combine to form water.)
Lesson includes a powerpoint presentation, and a student activity that goes along with day one's lesson. In this case, students are asked to make models of specific molecules (your students will need access to a molecular model kit in order to do this) and then to decide whether each molecule is an element or a compound.
