Title: Drying Dishes
In this Science Update, from Science NetLinks, you'll hear how a quirk of dish drying shows off a fundamental idea behind the chemistry of water. Because of their different compositions, plastic takes a lot longer to dry than glass. Science Updates are audio interviews with scientists and are accompanied by a set of questions as well as links to related Science NetLinks lessons and other related resources.
Standard(s): [S1] AQU (9-12) 2: Relate geological and hydrological phenomena and fluid dynamics to aquatic systems.
Title: Atoms & Bonding
Kahoot! Web Address URL:
[SC2015] CHEM (9-12) 3: Use the periodic table as a systematic representation to predict properties
of elements based on their valence electron arrangement.Digital Tool Description: Kahoot! allows teachers to create or use already created quizzes, discussions, and surveys to enhance student learning.
As a culminating activity, this Kahoot! will serve as a formative assessment after lessons about Atoms and Bonding.
