Product Description

High-interest reading and analysis about synthetic and natural chemicals, how they differ, and how several specific examples have impacted society.

4 page reading and 2 pages of analysis questions!

This NGSS activity has 2 parts. First, students read a 4-page handout "Natural & Synthetic Chemicals: Good Guys & Bad Guys". The reading is specifically designed to support MS-PS1-3, describing natural and synthetic chemicals, how synthetic chemicals can be made from natural resources, and many interesting examples of how chemicals have impacted society in both negative and positive ways. Then, students complete a 2-page analysis worksheet based on the text and their own ideas about the importance (and future) of chemicals.

The reading is middle school level, and suitable for a heterogeneous mix of student abilities. Students will find it engaging, and the examples listed are high interest.
