Product Details

360Storyline is a collection of experiments that together let students engage in science in an authentic manner through the use of relevant phenomena. Each experiment in a 360Storyline builds on things learned in the preceding experiments until students develop a final, working explanation or model of the phenomenon. Every lab in any 360Storyline is completely editable and supported by videos and simulations. 

Includes:

  • Access to digital content for 1 year
  • Lab supplies for each experiment for a single class of 30 students

 

Product Design
Lead students to a written understanding/working model of how we are able to design materials for specific functions. Scientists use their understanding of how changes at the atomic and molecular level influence a material’s macroscopic properties. These activities take students down that same path, exploring the material property relationships between bond types, intermolecular forces and molecular structure. By the end of this storyline, students will plan investigations, predict properties and make  recommendations about how best to solve a problem.

What Students Do

Lab 1—Correlate Material Properties and Bond Type
Students carry out an investigation to determine whether bulk properties can be correlated to types of bonds within a substance.

Lab 2—Measure the Energy of a Phase Change
Students use heating and cooling curves to make observations relating to the energy changes associated with a phase change.

Lab 3—Melt Ionic and Covalent Compounds
Students carry out an investigation to qualitatively examine the melting points of covalent and ionic compounds.

Lab 4—Modeling Metals, Ceramics and Polymers
Students build models representing metals, ceramics and polymers at the molecular level. These models are then used to try and explain some of the bulk properties associated with each type of compound.

Lab 5—Investigate Surface Tension
Students investigate the surface tension of water and the effect of surfactants on it.

Lab 6—Aqueous Solutions
Students investigate changes in the observable properties of solutions as more and more material is dissolved.

Lab 7—Road Deicers
Students carry out an experiment to determine how effective different compounds are at melting road ice.

About 360Storylines

360Storyline is a collection of experiments that together let students engage in science in an authentic manner through the use of relevant phenomena. Each experiment in a 360Storyline builds on things learned in the preceding experiments until students develop a final, working explanation or model of the phenomenon. Every lab in any 360Storyline is completely editable and supported by videos and simulations. 

Students must drive the learning forward by developing procedures and asking questions. Each storyline is supported by editable documents that force students to think about how the data they collect relate to an individual experiment’s investigative phenomenon and how the data they collect in a series of labs relate to a broader, anchoring phenomenon.
