With these materials my students will go beyond the chemistry textbook. Students will use the Molecular Model Kits in pairs and groups of four to build 3D molecules. This will give them the opportunity to use their hands and build molecules. As they are doing so, students will be discussing the structures and bonds of the molecules built. This activity will give students the opportunity to visualize atomic bonds and better describe how atoms are connected in the world around them. After students build the molecules, they will use the chalk pens to draw and write out their molecules’ make up. This will allow for students to read to determine valence electrons, discuss how atoms would be able to connect to one another or why it is even possible, and write/draw their molecules using the chalk pens on their lab table. This collaborative activity will be a way for my students to explore and have fun learning and showing what they know about atoms beyond the book.
