Chemistry and Chemical Bonding Fun!
First I had Elizabeth watch several videos from Actions and Reactions on Ted Ed, including this one.
I then had Elizabeth make a variety of chemical formulas with different coloured marshmallows and toothpicks. She started out with easier molecules and then worked up to more complicated ones. This was an excellent visual for how elements bond together!
This brought a great discussion about the infinite amount of combinations of elements there were and how God could create such variety in life!
We also discussed covelant bonding and ionic bonding and I had Elizabeth draw them both out just to solidify the concepts.
This was a great hands on lesson! Blessings, Natalie
