Teaching Tips

Basic high school chemistry knowledge is needed.

Activity is self-directed and robust in content. This activity would benefit from educator interaction and group discussion at intervals to pose and answer questions, clarify visualizations, etc.

This resource would make a very nice homework assignment and would be useful for home school students.

Could be used as a student self-directed resource as a formative assessment.
