I used JCE Classroom Activity #111 in my chemistry classes today. (Subscription to JCE required.) What a great way to help students make the connection between number of ions present, the charges of the ions and the neutral compound formula.

Want ideas for this year's theme:  The AniMOLE Kingdom?  Visit www.moleday.org or visit the facebook page National Mole Day Foundation Inc.

There are so many fun ways to celebrate with your class.  One of my favorites was building an acetylene cannon and shooting stuffed moles students

Do you or anyone you know advise an ACS Chem Club? I have heard of it over the past few years, but I have been busy and didn’t want to add another thing to my plate. When I found out that there are no requirements of what or how much we have to do as a group, I decided that I could give it a try. I appreciate that ACS provides some great resources. You can find many ideas on the ACS web site.
