Reflection: Real World Applications Water Sculpting - Section 3: Direct Instruction: H 2 - OH MY!


Students first learned about H2O in the early primary grades so what more do you have to teach them about water at the secondary level . . . A LOT!!!  As you know, high schools students feel like they already "know it all" so when you bring up the subject of the water molecule you may get a few eye rolls, but here is the chance to make water EXCITING!  By empowering the students to control their learning, by creating models from clay, and by inferring how the structure of water will dictate its function on Earth and in our lives, students now are challenged to view water in a whole new light.  This is not the same old boring water lesson, but a chance for students to create, analyze, and predict as scientist while using water as a platform for learning!  Have fun and it is time to ditch the same old water lesson!

Water Sculpting

Unit 4: How It All Happens: An Introduction To Biochemistry
Lesson 5 of 11

Objective: SWBAT create a model of a water molecule, describe its properties, and predict the types of bonds it will create as a result of its structure.

Big Idea: Clay-mation brings the water molecules to life as students create models of a water molecule and examine its structure to predict its role in our body and in the environment.
