Understanding Bonding in Reactions

Help me give my students an opportunity to model chemical reactions and understand how energy is stored in chemical bonds.

My Students

Our school boundaries crosscut the advantaged and disadvantaged portions of our city. Multiple languages are spoken by students and parents as we have a true melting pot of cultures represented on campus. In the past four years, we have seen an increase in students from multi-family housing units and with special education needs. Given that current census data considers Arabic speaking immigrants as 'White/Caucasian for demographic purposes, our percent of White students are at forty-four percent; however, most of our new English Learners now speak Arabic or Chaldean instead of Spanish. We have fourteen hundred students who are eligible for the Free or Reduced-Price Lunch program and our School Site Council approved for us to be a Title One schoolwide program.

My Project

Our chemistry department is using a new curriculum that asks students to model the making and breaking of bonds to understand how and where energy is stored/released in chemical reactions.

By providing these magnetic marbles, you will help us allow students to experience hands-on, the rearrangement and formation of chemical reactions.

These magnets will augment a previous grant for molecular model kits by focusing more on the energy stored and released in the bonds between atoms as compared to the moles (number of molecules) needed to balance a reaction.
