This brief assignment is a great way to start your chemistry students off on the right foot...or maybe the left? It doesn't really matter which foot as long as they get to find the reasons why taking chemistry in high school will be beneficial for the rest of their life. Students find their own examples of why chemistry matters to them, create a Google slide, and then the teacher compiles those slides to share with the class. It's an epic adventure and a great way to get to know your students at the beginning of the year! This could be adapted to any science course.
