Five Things Friday: Volume 11

It's Friday once again which means it's time to compile another post with some of the smaller goings-on in my classroom that deserve to be compiled and shared. I didn't plan it this way, but 4/5 of this post has to do with my chemistry class.

1. In Chemistry, we're currently practicing classifying compounds as covalent, ionic, or both. Yesterday, we practiced this skill by classifying common, everyday compounds.

2. I'm super pleased with how my students' atomic theory timeline projects turned out. We didn't have time to cover every theory in class, so this project helped round-out our understanding of atomic theory.

3. We pulled out my sticker collection recently in the name of learning how to create electron dot diagrams. I'm currently on a sticker buying ban for good reason...

My kids complain about how easy it is for me to draw dots on the SMARTBoard and how time consuming it is to draw their own dots. When you pull out stickers, the complaining goes away!

4. Have a few extra odd minutes at the end of class? Try an online game of Think Fun's Rush Hour.

5. My chemistry students have really taken to using our mole map as a tool for conversion problems. If I was only a science teacher (instead of a math teacher who teaches one hour of science each day), I would definitely have a giant version of this on the wall!
