Just before we recessed for Thanksgiving Break, the 11th an 12th Chemistry class was learning to write chemical compounds for covalent bonds, ionic bonds, and acids. Below are the two videos we watched in class that are a great review for what we've already studied. Pay close attention to the rules for each bonds as this will be a key component on the next test.
Here is part two...
Acids follow their own set of rules. The following video will show a pneumonic device to help you remember all those tricky guidelines...
It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is less than two week away! That means that Wednesday, November 23rd, will be a party day. Come ready to play Family Feud: Thanksgiving Edition and some Minute-to-Win-It, crazy activities! This is to remind both the 11th and 12th as well as the 9th and 10th about their dishes for the Thanksgiving party. The 11th and 12th Government class must bring a traditional Thanksgiving dish while the list below describes the Civil War dish the 9th and 10th will be bringing:
Ariana-Civil War Mac and Cheese
John-Beans with Molasses
Daniela-Robert E. Lee Orange Cake
Angela-Hot Milk Sponge Cake
Even if you will not be here on that Wednesday, your dish must be brought in the day before. I will be taking a participation grade: 100% if your dish is there or 0% if it is not. Easy way to bring up some low scores. If you have any questions please be sure to let me know!

In science class a few weeks ago we were studying the power of splitting an atom...much like what happens when an atom bomb explodes. This video below depicts the horrific power of such an explosion...
