If you feel your students are checked out because chemistry is “too hard,” this lesson helps ease students into the content. My approach for all lessons in this unit is slow and steady, scaffolded to ensure rigor and higher-order thinking, and differentiated instruction to empower ALL students. This resource works well after Middle School Chemistry: Everyday Chemistry Stations. More chemistry lessons and a growing bundle coming soon!
