On this page, you will find online labs and Inquiry Learning Spaces, which have been selected to fit the curricula of Benin, Kenya, and Nigeria. This page will help you find suitable resources for your classroom activities and easily create Inquiry Learning Spaces for your studens.
Are all atoms of an element the same? How can you tell one isotope from another? Use the sim to learn about isotopes and how abundance relates to the average atomic mass of an element.
With this lab you will find out how separation of mixtures is done using the following techniques: Separating funnel Chromatography Centrifugation Simple distillation Fractional distillation
An interactive whiteboard activity where students build an atom by dragging electrons, neutrons and protons onto the template. The element information box shows if they are correct. The animation can also be used to show how ions form.
Do you ever wonder how a greenhouse gas affects the climate, or why the ozone layer is important? Use the sim to explore how light interacts with molecules in our atmosphere.
Explore pressure at the atomic level. All matter is made up of atoms, which make up molecules. These atoms and molecules are always in motion. When atoms and molecules are contained, we can measure the amount of pressure they exert on the container.
Investigate the relationship between the volume of a gas and the pressure it exerts on its container. This relationship is commonly known as Boyle's Law. The pressure of a gas tends to decrease as the volume of the gas increases. Primary aims of the Lab:
Explore the relationship between the temperature of a gas and its volume. This is commonly known as Charles's Law. The volume of a gas tends to increase as the temperature increases. Primary aims of the Lab: 1) To learn about Charles's Law
Build an atom out of protons, neutrons, and electrons, and see how the element, charge, and mass change. Then play a game to test your ideas!
Kinetic Molecular Theory describes the behaviour of tiny gas particles, which are too small to be seen even with the strongest microscope. Kinetic means "motion," so the theory is all about particles moving!
How do you know if a chemical equation is balanced? What can you change to balance an equation? Play a game to test your ideas! Primary aims of the lab:
