Lets Celebrate Amusement Park Physics Day Einsteins Birthday Mole Day National Chemistry Week 2008 ASTA Fall Conference Workshop Presented by Candace Golliver and Doreen Brisendine UNA AMSTI-ASIM Specialists
Lets Celebrate & Amusement Park Physics Day Einsteins Birthday Mole Day National Chemistry Week, Guess the number of moles of sodium chloride in the container (rounded to the nearest whole #) One entry per person please
Celebrating National Chemistry Week Having a Ball with Chemistry October 19-25, 2008
Celebrating National Chemistry Week Having a Ball with Chemistry Chemistry in Sports –Endurance athletes, hemoglobin levels, NO levels, & steroid detection (p.1310) –Indy Car Racing (p.1316) –Golf – chemical make-up of a golf ball and club (p.1319) –Polymers used in artificial turf (p.1323) –Polymers used in protective headgear (p.1326) –Polymers in sports & safety equipment (properties of different types of sports balls) –Sports Nutrition Sports in Chemistry –Using games and puzzles in chemistry class to promote interest and healthy academic competition (fielding average= avg of weekly lab grades; batting average= quiz/test avg; homerun =100% quiz/test score, etc) –Relate the sport of running to chemical kinetics (p ) –See who can make the best bouncy ball in the lab Ideas from the Journal of Chemical Education, Vol.85, No.10, October 2008

Mole Day Ideas from the NMDF, Inc. Molympics (Pin the Nose on the Mole, Mole Toss, 6.02 Relay, etc.) Mole-opoly Create a "Moletin Board" Host a Mole Pun Contest Write a Mole Day song Make Mole Day "campaign signs Exchange Mole Day greeting cards Mole costume party Decorate with Mole-biles Notify local media of your Mole Day festivities (TV, newspaper, radio) Scavenger Hunt – Ex.-Something that contains NaHCO 3 Write a Mole Day poem, story, or cartoon Make a Mole Day flag Make a mole pinata or a stuffed mole Ten Commolements Make Mole Day treats: Moleasses cookies, Avogadro Dip, or Taco- mole sauce
Mole Day Ideas from the Normal Community High School 1.Beauty Contest – vote with pennies for favorite (most creative mole) 2.Mole-yattas – filled with tootsie moles 3.Pin the face (Avogadro) on the mole (Pin the tail on the donkey) 4.Best mole day jokes / puns contest 5.Moller coaster 6.Mole-n-One Golf 7.Bozos circus (mole toss) in buckets for prizes 8.Shoot the mole across the room for distance 9.Class Picture: Everyone with Avogadro masks on 10.Decorate lockers in the school with Avogadro wallpaper 11.Mole day streamers (Avogadros face) around room 12.Have students make a Mole Day brochure 13.Jello eating contest (how much moleasses flavored) jello can you eat in 22.4 seconds. Recall 1 mole = 22.4 Liters
Still More Mole Day Ideas Meet for breakfast at 6:02 am. Sew-a-Mole (pattern from with membership)www.moleday.org Mole (Car) Races Go on a local TV/radio station morning show at 6:02 am and talk about Mole Day. (or call radio station) School Contest: Guess how many moles of sodium chloride are in a large container displayed for all to see. Get local businesses to donate prizes for contest winners. Design & sale Mole Day shirts. Chemistry Show after school with lots of cool demonstrations. Mole Day Videos (Post on You Tube?) Mole Day Songs (prerecorded or live) Require students to tell two others about the Mole Concept. Post signs around school explaining the Mole Concept.
Other Mole Day Ideas Put Mole Day on the school calendar Hand out and wear Mole Day signs/badges. Academic Mole Competitions – Balancing equations, gram- to-mole/mole-to-mole/mole-to-gram/gram-to-gram conversions, molar concentrations, etc. Drink 1 mol of H 2 O (18 g or 0.63oz) of water at 6:02am. (taken from Make Mole-Decorated Cakes Have a Mole Day door decorating contest Have a contest to see who can make the best mole out of a mole of aluminum foil Have students make a display of various substances that each contain one mole (such as a container with one mole of table salt)
Mole Day Ideas from the NMDF, Inc. ww.moleday.org ww.moleday.org Ten Commolements by Tom Knickerbocker and Kenny Quick Prairie du Chien High School 1991 Prairie du Chien, WI 1.Thou shalt not use 6.02 x 10^23 in vain. 2.Thou shalt not use the term mole if thou has no true knowledge of the term mole. 3.Thou shalt not kill a mole. 4.Thou shalt not covet your neighbor's mole. 5.Thou shall always remember to celebrate Mole Day. 6.Thou shalt not disparage Mole Day. 7.Thou shalt not use a mole out of season. 8.Thou shall always honor the one who introduced thou to Mole Day. 9.You shall always keep sacred 10/ Thou shall always remember these commolments or thou will never properly celebrate Mole Day.
Examples of Signs to Post: MOLEDAY IS COMING!!!
Examples of Signs to Post: Definition of MOLE: Avogadros Number 6.02 x particles A counting unit used in chemistry There are 12 eggs in a dozen eggs. There are 6.02 x eggs in a mole of eggs. Thats a lot of eggs!! ** Happy Mole Day * October 23 rd **
