Instructional Ideas
  • Use the resource to help young chemists associate organic structures with their names
  • Have modeling kits available as the class works so they can build the functional groups
Classroom Considerations
  • Students should have a basic understanding of organic principles before beginning the interactive
  • Make sure the class knows what the letters R and X represent in organic compounds
Pros
  • Interactive focuses on the essential functional groups that learners must know to quickly identify organic compounds
  • Time limits encourage pupils to work quickly to recognize the functional groups
Cons
  • None
