Title of Presentation or Activity Description
Charged up!  This is an inquiry activity designed to demonstrate to the students the relationship between pH, ions, charges, and conductivity. Students will test various household products with a simple circuit setup and will be able to explore the connection between chemistry and electricity. 
Chemical and Physical Changes  This activity demonstrates to students, in a hands-on fashion, the concept of physical and chemical changes. By allowing students a first-hand opportunity to experience the differences between the two types of changes, they will hopefully remember the information better in the future. This activity reinforces the concepts of qualitative observation, inference, and drawing conclusions 
Chemistry Links  We have collected a number of excellent links to chemistry materials. Attached is a list of some of the best we have found so far for middle-school teaching materials, ranging from general chemistry links to variants on the presentation of the periodic table to examples of chemical reactions in daily life. 
Chemistry Terminology  Students will learn fundamental terms related to chemistry. 
Chernobyl (supplement for Ukraine module)  Nuclear power plants provide energy for people worldwide. There are many threats involved in producing nuclear power though. This PowerPoint presentation addresses some of the past accidents such as Chernobyl and Three-mile Island as well as a scenario if something happened of a power plant in Texas. 

The PEER Program is composed of three grants entitled "GK-12 Fellows Integrate Science/Math in Rural Middle Schools", "Integrating Environmental Health Science in Rural Schools," and a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) entitled "Science Promotion in Rural Middle Schools".

Major funding for the PEER Program is provided by John Deere,
National Science Foundation, the
National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences
and the Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
