Hi! It’s Tuesday, February 22, 2011 and time for Science at ClickSchooling!
Age Range: 10-18 (Grades 5-12, approximately, with parental supervision)
A chemist in the United Kingdom created this website for students, teachers, and those who are simply interested in chemistry. It offers free chemistry puzzles, interactive quizzes, instructive molecular models, worksheets and fun activities designed to help you learn about chemistry in a fun and engaging way.
When you get to the site you will see an introduction and a menu that includes links to all kinds of practical guides and worksheets, info on balancing equations, chemistry-themed word searches, concentration games, and more. You’ll also find:
*Fun Practical Activities – Get instructions for anodizing, blueprinting, dyeing, fingerprinting, fire writing, flame tests, and how to conduct a urine analysis.
*Interactive Crossword Puzzles – Do chemistry-themed crossword puzzles that teach and reinforce knowledge about chemical families, acids, alkalis, chemistry apparatus, metals and ores, rocks, and organic chemistry.
*Impossible Mission Quizzes – Race the clock to answer multiple choice questions about chemistry including acids and alkalis, metals and reactivity, oil and air, aqueous and organic, and more.
*The Molecule Warehouse – Play with animated molecular models to better understand organic chemistry. You can move, rotate and resize them, and learn about tetrahedral molecules, trigonal bipyramidal molecules, octahedral molecules, isomers of organic compounds and much more.
If that sounds the least bit intimidating, just explore the site for a bit and you’ll become comfortable with those concepts in no time!
Most of the activities come with a downloadable PDF, pictures and instructions too. There are great science experiments and lessons for you to learn all about chemistry.
And Don’t Miss “Fun Stuff“ with old-school style games like breakout, hangman, and Tetris.
