Themed Moles

Student make moles (due on Mole Day) Patterns are available on-line and they are easy to make. But they must make themed moles so for example, one student make their mole out of camo and called it caMOLEflage. One student made theirs look like a phone and called it a MOLEble phone. It's lots of fun!

Mole Day Ideas

My students wear a sign all day advertising avogadro's number and the meaning of a mole in chemistry. They also must explain the concept to 10 different people and create a mole-day activity to share with the class. They also have the option to dress-up as a theme mole for the day. This year's mole-day theme is found on the official mole day website http://www.moleday.org/

moles of humans, fish and cheese burgers

Ask students to draw a human, a fish and a hamburger. Give students the approximate % of elements and/or compounds found in each. Ask students to label their picture with the percentages and the calculated moles. They can color or paint their project. You can contact me for the approximate % I used if you are interested.

Cool Chemistry Projects

Since the point of Mole Day is to raise interest in chemistry, you can do chemistry demonstrations. Sulfuric acid and sugar is a good demonstration. So is elephant toothpaste. pH color change chemistry demonstrations are popular, too.

Mole Day Poster

Make a Mole Day poster that shows some of the ways chemistry is important to everyone.
