Chemical Reaction Cartoons



Submitted by: Kathryn Brock
Collaborators: Mike Dunavant (ITRT)
School: Varina High School

Summary

Students are given an explanation of the five different types of chemical reactions, with chemical equations as examples of each. Each example is explained in detail to show the specifics of the process taking place. Then students are assigned to groups to brainstorm and create a cartoon showing one of the five reaction types. Students are encouraged to be creative and place the reaction in the context of real world examples. My sample cartoon showed bread and cheese being combined into a cheese sandwich, as an example of a combination reaction. Students copy and paste their cartoon into a PowerPoint slide and submit to my dropbox on Schoolspace.

TIPC Ratings

Ideal/Target: Students used the opportunity and basic structure of the cartoon to illustrate their knowledge and understanding of the types of chemical reactions

Ideal/Target: Students used the opportunity and basic structure of the cartoon to illustrate their knowledge and understanding of the types of chemical reactions

Approaching: Students used technology to solve the problem of how to communicate their ideas in a cartoon that accurately illustrated the reaction type. Construction of the cartoon required understanding the concept, communicating that understanding to the groups, building consensus in how best to illustrate the concept, and using various computer programs to accomplish the task.

Ideal/Target: Students use their critical thinking skills and knowledge to create an original cartoon to illustrate a type of chemical reaction.
