Chemistry

  1. Significant Figures Everywhere
In this lesson, students watch a video that has examples of how significant figures are seen every day.  Students will then show that they are thinking about it by answering the question using Recap.  Then students do an in class activity where they examine the number of sig figs in six different balances (number of balances can change).  Then, students will write a paragraph defending which balance is best to use.  That paragraph will be distributed to educators via twitter and they will provide feedback.  The grade is then determined on the feedback that is received and a follow-up conference with the students.

  1. Blood Typing
In class, start with a discussion about the different types of blood using the manipulatives in activity 1. After chatting about the types of blood using the blood type manipulatives, students move on to an online blood transfusion activity. ​Then, the next day a principal dies in class and the students have to test blood types to determine which suspect did it. Students are assessed multiple ways. First, each video has 3 check for understanding questions in the student accountability assignment. To prove that they watched the video, students were expected to be able to answer one of the three questions, chosen randomly, verbally.  Also, students are assessed by observing their ability to model a blood types using the manipulatives (activity 1), and transfuse a patient without killing them on the online game (activity 2), and if they could determine who killed the principal (activity 3).
