Assign this digital Google Slides activity in Google Classroom for distance learning! Think of this as a DIGITAL WORKSHEET. Students read about how crude oil is processed to make products we use every day and learn how the process depends entirely on the boiling points of its components. This is a quick activity that covers both NGSS MS-PS1-3 and MS-PS1-2 in one little package!
This activity has 2 parts.
ARTICLE: Students read a 2-slide article that describes the process by which crude oil is separated based on the individual boiling points of its components. Students learn how materials such as kerosene, gasoline, and lubrication oils are separated in a fractionating column based solely on their boiling point.
WORKSHEET SLIDE: Students label a diagram of a fractionating column and answer 6 text-dependent review questions.
