Even Block Schedule (Organic Chem models-non ring glucose molecule shown in the picture)
Wow what a terrific day to be a teacher.
Who knew organic chemistry could be so fun! We covered part 1 of a 3 part organic chem standard. Carbon is the element of life and makes 4 covalent bonds. I broke out the atom model kits for the first time ever. They made all kinds of carbohydrates from methane to octane to decane. Some made vanillin , aspirin and glucose. Even TNT.
We used a set of model set with wood spheres and springs to make the models. The kids had soooo much fun. I should have done this 20 years ago.
I hope this helps.
Love to Teach, and Teach with Passion!
It’s not Magic, It’s Science!
