Molecules and Clouds Lesson

This is a power point that I created for a fifth grade class that had just finished learning about weather. Most of the students had not learned about atoms and molecules so I decided to link the lesson to what they knew about clouds. I used an interactive approach to presenting the powerpoint by asking lots of questions. The best part for me was when one student’s eyes grew big, and he grabbed his own arm.  “You mean they’re in us and.. and… everything!?”

After the introduction, the class did hands-on activities such as cloud in a bottle and classroom demos, e.g. dry ice soap bubbles.
