Product Description
In this activity/project students will better understand the immense size of a mole and Avogadro's Number. This project also helps students master and practice the skill of converting numbers and values from one unit to another. A skill that is vital to chemistry.

For the project students must take something that is very small, and compare it to something that is very LARGE. They need to prove their calculations in their project while also creating a catchy and artistic poster for the viewer.

Examples of ones my students have done from the past:
1) If you filled out a mole of NCAA Tournament Brackets how many perfect brackets would you have?

2) If you had a mole of dimes how many times would it cover the surface of the earth?

3) If you had a mole of golf balls, how many times would they fill the volume of the earth?

4) If you had a mole of hockey pucks set end for end, how many times could you reach to the center of the Milky Way and back?
