Mole Activity A Lesson in Creative Chemistry

Students in Mrs. Theresa Maquar’s chemistry classes were creative with a mole/mol assignment. The mol symbol is the unit of measurement for the amount of substance in the International System of Units (SI). It is defined as exactly 6.02214076×10²³ particles, which may be atoms, molecules, ions, or electrons. In the class assignment, each student created a mole from a given pattern. For their moles, they created an identity and a birth certificate, complete with their mole’s mass in grams. In class, the students presented their moles and completed a mole problem worksheet based on their mole’s mass.

“They used the measurement of mass to complete mole problems which was a good review for the exam. The assignment added some fun to the review process,” said Mrs. Maquar.
