Big Idea 3

Students gain a deeper understanding of electrochemistry with this guided-inquiry activity and make real-world connections to batteries! Challenge your students to build their very own handheld battery out of a few simple materials. What better way to promote engagement? Students complete a homework set before lab day where they delve into the basic principles of electrochemistry. Reasoning at the macroscopic and particulate level is achieved before lab. The activity easily fits into one, 50-minute wet lab period with minimal set-up time. Watch your students’ enjoyment while they develop high-order cognitive skills.
