General Chemistry Poster Project
This semester the General Chemistry class started off the year with a poster project (thanks to Mrs. Gogerty for letting me use some of your lessons). Students worked in groups to create posters on the different states of matter. After the poster projects students experimented in the lab and tried to answer the following questions: 1) How hot can you heat water? and 2) How hot can you heat ice water? As students try to answer questions they will begin to learn about the intermolecular forces between molecules and what happens to molecular bonds as substances transition from one phase of matter to another.
