Element Videos and Freebie Worksheet

In this short (2:19) video, Oxygen tries to make it at ELEMENTary school! My students loved this video, which was a great springboard into our discussion about how elements bond together to form molecules and compounds.

A catchy tune and some memorable examples make this video perfect for the middle school science student. Check it out!

We watched this video just for fun in class and then I created this worksheet to extend the lesson for my tech-savy students.  Not all my students have internet access, so I didn't assign this for a required homework.  A few of my struggling students took interest and so I awarded them extra credit (which they really need) for correctly completing this follow-up worksheet at home or in the school library.
