PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this structure and properties of matter activity, students travel to 5 molecule stations (ammonia, hydrogen peroxide, water, calcium carbonate, and glucose) to gather information and create scientific models. The molecules vary in complexity allowing for easy differentiation. As they travel to each station they gather information to add to a “Molecule and Me” booklet. At each station they read a short passage about the molecule, answer 3 questions, build a model using gum drops, draw pictures and complete a jigsaw puzzle.

This product specifically addresses the Next Generation Science Standard for Middle School: Structure and Properties of Matter. MS-PS1-1.

This product has QR codes for students to use smartphones or ipads for checking their answers for accuracy. This feature is an "extra" or "option" and is not necessary. It is just a fun way to have kids check their own answers! Not all students will need a device. One QR reading device for every 3 kids is plenty. Students usually enjoy this and it will save YOU time correcting!

Teacher answer keys (in addition to QR code answer keys) are included for all questions.

This is an introductory lesson on molecular structure. It is intended for 6th grade, but may be adapted to meet other upper elementary/middle school grades. Emphasis is on developing conceptual and physical models of molecules and serves as a foundational lesson during and introduction to chemistry unit.

Key Concepts:
Element
Periodic Table
Molecules
Compounds
Chemical Formulas
