How I Use It
They are short enough to easily include in a lesson, and there are short (5 question) reviews at the end. I really enjoy the further investigation, gives the students (and teacher) a chance to go farther with the information. An example, the Haber Process is an amazing addition to a chemistry lesson on Le Chat's Principle and equilibrium. The further investigation dealt with an ethical situation, did Haber deserve the Nobel Prize considering his background of helping Nazi warfare?
My Take
I love to use these and supplements to my science lessons. They are in cartoon format, so the kids are interested. They are short, around 5 minutes, and engaging.
