This is literally one of the best-animated PowerPoints I have ever created.
Students use NYS Reference Table J (Activity Series) to predict which electrode in an electrochemical cell would spontaneously oxidize. Next, the anatomy of a voltaic cells is examined and a rocking animation shows them the process behind a voltaic cell. The animation clearly shows what could cause a voltaic cell to stop working.
Lastly, students answer questions as a class and compare the workings of a voltaic cell to that of an electrolytic cell.
Most of my chemistry lessons are 8 slide PowerPoints. I print the PowerPoints each day (4 slides per page... front and back = 1 sheet of paper per student). The students then fill out the answers to my guided and scaffolded questions as I fill them out on the SmartBoard. My teaching style is highly interactive, and my lessons support that style.
All lessons include a Do Now, Mini Lesson, Pair Up, and Summary to keep students moving and engaged.
To remove the "Wickline" watermark, select the Watermark from the Insert menu, then select No Watermark. You cannot remove the watermark's from .pdf files and SmartBoard files, so you'll have to make new ones from your fresh watermark-less Microsoft file.
