What is Chemistry?


After doing first week activities and discussing lab safety, it's time to start our formal study of chemistry. Yesterday, I decided to have my students complete a frayer model with the definition of chemistry. But, first, I had students create a mind map/concept map/bubble map/whatever you want to call it map of what they thought chemistry was.

I used my group sized dry erase boards that I got last year with a grant. Each group got five minutes to complete the task. 

Here's what my students came up with:






I would like to have students do this activity again at the end of the year to show them just how much they learned about chemistry.
