My students are mostly minority students who come from low-income family backgrounds. They are very active and enjoy coming to school and learning science.
They are always ready to learn new skills and explore new opportunities, but the unavailability of resources makes it hard for them to understand some of the abstract concepts that I teach; therefore, the need to explain the concepts in ways that make them real, captivating and interesting becomes imperative.
My students enjoy completing class projects that involve hands-on experiments, programming, art, and research, which helps them express their understanding of chemistry concepts in their own way by creating new meanings of their discoveries.
This project will require my students to conduct research online, They will also use newspapers, magazines and other resources to find 20 household items that they use every day. They will cut out the picture of those items, and use glue sticks to attach them to the tri-fold poster boards. They will also create a data table where they will write down the names of the items and the chemical compounds that the items contain.
My students will use science journalism to convey report about food science to the school community.
The papers that will be displayed on the boards will be in a newspaper format and it will contain the breakdown of the different chemicals found in the food or household items, they will enumerate the usefulness and dangers of those chemicals to our bodies. They will group the compounds into three different groups’ i.e. covalent, ionic or organic compounds.
The finished project will be presented to the school community.
