A great interactive chemistry activity from the Corning Museum of Glass, this explores the chemistry of making glass. Extremely informational, this site is fun way to explore chemistry that is relevant to everyday life. We all encounter different types of glass throughout our day!
In the ClassroomThis interactive could be used class wide in physical science classes concentrating on chemistry. Display on the interactive whiteboard or projector and then have students share the responsibility of determining the next step. Have students take notes as the class navigates through the elements used in the production of different types of glass. Better still, have students work through the website on their own computer or laptop. Make sure they have headsets or their own earphones to plug into the computer. Have students keep a section of their notebooks for the chemistry of glass. Or, have students use stickies or a word document to keep notes. Students can also take notes online using an organizer/concept map using a tool such as scribblar (reviewed here).
