This resource developed by the American Chemical Society features free multimedia lessons and activities to support middle school chemistry instruction. Lessons are organized into six chapters: Matter, Changes of State, Density, The Periodic Table and Bonding, the Water Molecule and Dissolving, and Chemical Change. Each chapter includes a lesson plan, student activity sheet with answer key, videos and interactive animations, related reading for students, hands-on experiments, and discussion questions.

Editor's Note: The authors designed this curriculum to help students understand basic chemistry within a framework of molecular interactions. The molecular models and related animations provide a foundation for understanding states of matter, atomic models and bonding, charge interactions, and chemical change.

Please note that this resource requires Flash.
