Chemical Names and Symbols

For our first lesson of Chapter 2, students took notes from the Lesson 6 PowerPoint to introduce students to chemical names and symbols.  Students then had the remainder of the class period to make observations about a wide variety of elements from a vintage science kit unearthed prior to the move out of the old Highline High School last spring.

Students had the remainder of the class period to read Lesson 6 in the textbook, and then answer the Lesson 6 questions in the Chapter 2 Study Guide.
