Reflection: Classroom Setup Final Review Lab #2- Thermochemistry, Nuclear, and Equilibrium - Section 4: Evaluate


With the end of the semester I feel like it is a good time to discuss the concept of having a text-rich classroom environment.  By this I am referring to having lots of words and equations around the classroom to which both myself and students can refer to when working with concepts.  This is a strategy that is especially helpful for visual learners and my English Learner students.  These are some pictures of my classroom to give you a glimpse of what this looks like.

Here is the front of my classroom where I have an area with gas laws, temperature equation, and energy equations

This is the side of my classroom where underneath the windows I have pH equations and solutions equations.

In the back of my classroom I have a word wall where I rotate the words based on the current unit, a periodic table of elements, and naming organic and covalent prefixes

On the last side of my classroom I have a poster with significant figures rules and another poster with Standard pressure conversions.

Final Review Lab #2- Thermochemistry, Nuclear, and Equilibrium

Unit 9: Unit 10: Nuclear Chemistry and Final Exam Review
Lesson 7 of 8

Objective: Students will be able to explain various semester 2 concepts through performing a review lab where they mix solutes with solvents, measure changes in temperature, and answer review type questions.

Big Idea: When a solute is added to a solvent it can either be an exothermic reaction that feels hot or an endothermic reaction that feels cold.
