Mrs. T's Site Spotlight - Legends of Learning
I currently utilize their website in my 1:1 science classroom. 
They offer an assortment of learning games that can be used to introduce topics, reinforce classroom learning, or assess student understanding after a lesson/unit.  Create a playlist by choosing games from a specific standard (NGSS) and then launch for your class. 


What are we studying in class?  We are exploring chemical reactions with lessons on balancing equations, classroom experiments, and online activities. The Balancing Act unit is available on the Chemistry Lesson Plans page.  We are also investigating physical and chemical changes with lessons on polymers and a cookie mystery!  Both of these units are also listed on the Chemistry page linked above.
