In this activity, learners explore how molecules self-assemble and how molecules must fit together, like a lock and key, in order to identify each other and initiate a new function as a combined unit. Learners use play-dough and keys to design their own molecular models that demonstrate how shapes of molecules are important to self-assembly. <br> <br> Note: The write-up for this activity starts on the bottom of page 12. <br> (less)

Atoms and Matter (3-6)

In this activity, learners build models of atoms and molecules, then consider their role in different phases of matter, density, and mixtures and solutions. The atomic models are made first from play dough, then from molecular model pieces. The phases of water are considered from a molecular point of view using a drawing. Oil and water are used to convey the relationship between mass and volume (density). Salt and pepper are used to show that some solids dissolve, and others don't. The activity is written to be part of a kit that can be checked out of the library, but the kit is not required. (less)

This animated tutorial for grades 6-9, published by the British Broadcasting Corporation, explores the molecular basis of compounds and mixtures. It is written in "bite-size" pieces so that adolescent learners can grasp the concepts more easily and connect information with prior knowledge. Each page is supplemented with audio narration and illustrations. Learners will try to fuse or separate elements, giving them insight into the bonding process without introducing advanced vocabulary. They will also view animations of filtration and evaporation. The tutorial ends with a brief quiz that allows students to self-test their understanding. (less)

In this activity, learners make a small batch of biodiesel that will work in any diesel engine. Learners use an old juice bottle as a "reactor" vessel to chemically process vegetable oil into fuel. Learners will discover that making biodiesel is much like cooking, since both are forgiving of improvisation and both require careful technique. This step by step instruction guide includes safety recommendations because the home-brewing process involves flammable, poisonous, and caustic chemicals, alcohols, and lye. Follow all directions carefully and ensure a responsible adult is present. (less)

Working in groups, learners model the continuous destruction and creation of ozone (O3) molecules, which occur in the ozone layer. Some learners act as ultraviolet (UV) light and break apart gumdrop and toothpick models of ozone molecules into oxygen molecules and atoms. Meanwhile, other learners assemble ozone molecules from the oxygen molecules and atoms. In a second round, learners model the situation when pollutants such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) are present. In subsequent rounds, the amount of CFCs changes according to historical data, and learners can see what happens to the proportion of ozone and oxygen in the ozone layer over time. Resource contains vocabulary definitions and suggestions for assessment, extensions, and scaling for different levels of learners. (less)

In this activity/demo, learners investigate biobarcodes, a nanomedical technology that allows for massively parallel testing that can assist with disease diagnosis. Learners define antibodies and learn how each antibody binds to a unique protein. Learners also discover how biobarcoding uses nanoparticles, antibodies, DNA and magnetism to detect diseases earlier than we could detect before. Learners assemble a jigsaw puzzle that models how biobarcodes work. (less)

In this activity/demo, learners examine a synthetic gecko tape with micron sized hairs that mimics the behavior of the gecko foot. The process is called "nanomolding." Also described in this guide is an easy setup for testing how much weight the gecko tape can hold using LEGOS. Note: it takes 45 minutes to make the gecko tape, which should be prepared 24 hours in advance. (less)

In this activity on page 15 of the PDF, learners measure the amount of bubbles that they make using a detergent. Learners investigate whether adding Epsom salt to the solution affects its "sudsiness"--an important attribute of soap, since sudsy bubbles help soap clean greasy dirt. Use this activity to explore how chemicals can change a material's properties and how substances dissolve. (less)

This online interactive has three activities in the NanoLab (press the upper right button): Build, Zoom, and Transform. In Build, learners build increasingly complex molecules out of carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen, and is useful for connecting subscripts and the number of atoms, and for introducing 3D molecular structures which are automatically built. Zoom is a "powers of 10" zoom-in ranging from 10,000 kilometers to 1 nanometer. Transform is a simulation of water changing phase from solid to liquid to gas. Through exploration of the site learners form a better understanding of the composition of matter. (less)

In this activity, learners use geometry to predict the shape of carbon. Learners twist and attach chenille stem pieces that represent bonds between different carbon atoms. Information about tetrahedral, trigonal planar, and diamond geometry types is included in this resource. This activity can also be used to introduce learners to allotropes (pure carbon forms) and fullerenes such as buckyballs and carbon nanotubes. (less)

In this activity, learners explore the human influences on the carbon cycle and examine how fossil fuels release carbon. Learners role play as miners, power plant operators, car drivers, and home owners in a city. Learners will act out how each member of society contributes to the carbon cycle and then create a classroom mural depicting the path of carbon. Learners can reflect on this process as well as brainstorm ways to lower their carbon footprints. This activity is the third in a series of three activities that introduce learners to the carbon cycle (see related sources), although it is not mandatory that all three activities are completed as a set.

In this kitchen chemistry activity, learners explore the chemistry of crystals by making sugar crystals, consider a common chemical reaction type responsible for the rising of muffins and cake in the oven, and study the cleaning power of soap. For some of the experiments, a molecular-level view is fostered using structural diagrams of the chemicals, along with a fun "cartoon" version of the reaction with molecules represented by colored shapes (both drawn and cut out). The activity is written to be part of a kit that can be checked out of the library, but can be done without the kit. (less)
