Moles, Avogadro's Number, Percent Composition, Empirical and Molecular Formulas Graphic Organizer

(0)
This graphic organizer covers the precursors to teaching stoichiometry. The students begin reviewing atomic mass, molar mass, moles and Avogadro's number. Each definition is coupled with practice problems for the students to solve. The next concept is percent composition. there are instructions on how to solve percent composition from the compounds formula and from masses given. The last two concepts covered are empirical formulas and molecular formulas. Again there are practice problems you can solve with your class. I have included detailed teachers key and the foldable easily fits into a composition notebook or spiral ring notebook to complete an interactive notebook.
Symbiosis Word Wall Coloring Sheets (6 pages)

Symbiosis Word Wall Coloring Sheets (6 pages)

(0)
Coloring pages have recently become a huge hit all over the world. In my new series of word wall coloring pages, you can bring the excitement of coloring into your middle school and high school science classrooms. This set includes the words: symbiosis, endosymbiosis, mutualism, commensalism, predation, and parasitism. Word Walls are an instructional tool used primarily in the elementary classroom. While teaching in Texas my administrators decided they wanted secondary teachers to use the tool as well. It was a great success on many levels. Students took time learning about their word and creating a design for it. I always displayed all the words and the students took great pride in seeing their work displayed. The students also enjoyed looking at each other’s work. I noticed over time that my students would frequently look at the wall while we working. Especially during pop quizzes or bell work. The word wall truly helped my students to remember their vocabulary words and seeing them displayed all the time in class made it easier for them to refresh their memory when necessary. Each word wall poster has a word wall art graphic that students can color. There is a designated box to write the scientific definitions, synonyms or examples, antonyms or nonexamples and space to write a sentence using the word. I developed word wall coloring pages for my students who struggled with what to draw and write when working on word walls. I always offer a blank template for my self-motivated artists, but the coloring pages allowed my students who struggle with a means for creating a beautiful piece of word wall art as well. My favorite way to use word walls includes after a test, to introduce new vocabulary in a relaxing format, sub work or as extra credit. They are also a fun way to revisit words student’s struggle with. In your file, you will receive the word wall word/words you purchased plus the blank template. Please feel free to tag me on Instagram (@MizzzFostersClass) to show off your students’ work.

Energy and the Electromagnetic Spectrum Power Point

(0)
The power point covers the electromagnetic spectrum, light, photons, waves and their characteristics. the relationship between frequency, wavelength, and the speed of light are introduced with the formula for speed of light. Calculating the energy of the electromagnetic waves is also covered with introduction to Planck's constant and the energy formula derived using the constant. How we see light is presented along with slides for each type of electromagnetic ray and how they can affect human health. I also have a slide on cosmic rays since they have the most energy of all electromagnetic rays.

Population Genetics: Selection, Isolation, Speciation Power Point
mizzzfoster

Population Genetics: Selection, Isolation, Speciation Power Point

(1)
The population genetics power point covers the mechanisms of how species evolve over time. It begins with an overview of Hardy-Weinberg and then delves into genetic flow, genetic drift, bottleneck effect, founder's effect, the types of selection, the types of isolation and the types of speciation. The power point is filled with examples of the mechanisms and pictures, graphs and charts to help emphasize the concepts. The concepts are heavy within population genetics so I would advise to chunk the information up into segments instead of teaching them all the way through in one day.
Bacteria Wanted Poster
