|Title of Presentation or Activity
||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
||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.
||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.
