Various activities focus on: (1) matter; (2) molecules; (3) atoms; (4) elements and compounds; (5) chemical symbols; (6) air (as a mixture of gases); (7) the periodic table; (8) how chemical symbols are used; (9) acids and bases; (10) precipitates; (11) emulsifiers; (12) solutions; (13) fission and fusion; and (14) isotopes. The amount of time required for completion of the activities varies from a few minutes to an entire class period. Included are reproducible handouts for many of the activities, along with quizzes, self-checks, and an answer key. (TW)
