This was the fourth presentation in a series of six web seminars covering each of the six chapters in middleschoolchemistry.com. Mr. Kessler began the presentation with a tour of the website then provided a detailed look at the lessons featured in chapter 4. He shared activity ideas and multimedia clips that can help students learn about the periodic table and atomic bonding. Participants discussed the application of the lessons to their own classrooms and shared ideas for modifications and extensions.
