Work on Project #3. This project will be evaluated based on how useful it would be as a teaching tool. Will students learn a lot from it? Would it make them more confused? Is the information accurate? Would a teacher choose to use it in their class?.
Reminder of the 3 projects you will work on: #1. Breaking News (due Mon. May 27), #2. Molecular Marvels (due Fri. May 31) and #3 What I Learned… (due week of June 10)
In the meantime, we will be doing some short lessons on Organic Chemistry reactions and some labs.
Pop Cell Lab Day 1 – Planning – In your groups, plan how you will design a battery that uses the pop can as one of your electrodes. Your goal is the make the “best” battery. We will test the batteries on Thursday and finish the mission files (write up).
Heads up! You can start returning your textbook and solutions manual if you feel you do not need to use them anymore. Please return them both at the SAME time.
Today, students wrote the Thompson Rivers University (TRU) Chemistry contest.
Students who did not want to write the contest continued with project #1 and project #2. You should choose your article and molecule by next week so you can start practicing your “broadcast” and start painting and assembling the molecule. (you will need to get your own supplies! You can bring them to school and we can store them in the cupboards/lab stations)
