Reflection: Real World Applications Smog in our Atmosphere - Section 1: Introduction

 

Chem Matters is a magazine for high school students created by the American Chemical Society. 

  • It is a great resource to use in the classroom because it has articles related to chemistry topics that are written specifically for students.  Each issue also has a teacher's guide that is helpful when coming up with how to use the articles in your classroom.  This is a copy of the teacher's guide for the issue that I used in this lesson. 
  • The magazine can be purchased for your classroom or you can access many of the articles online.  This is the link for the issue which I used for this lesson.
  • You can also access back issues online where you can search for articles based on specific topics.
  • Finally, when you access issues online there are often additional resources such as videos to accompany the reading.
