Every time a child washes his or her hands he can be reminded that soap cleans based on the difference in the strength of chemical bonds. TWM's "Lesson Plan on How Soap Cleans" will help teachers provide this understanding to students.
Learning Guide Excerpt
To give teachers an idea of what the lesson plan contains we have set out a brief excerpt from the proposed lecture.
To understand how soap cleans our hands (or anything else for that matter), we must review what we have learned about:
(1) how atoms become attached to each other to form molecules; and
ATOMIC BONDING: Ionic Bonds: When the outermost electron of one atom transfers permanently to another atom, the atom that gains the electron becomes negatively charged and the atom that loses the electron becomes positively charged. The electrostatic force (opposites attract) draws the two atoms together forming what is called an ionic bond. See Figure 2....
(2) how molecules attach to other molecules.
The complete lesson plan also contains eight diagrams and a comprehension test/homework assignment. A list of the curriculum standards for the ten most populous states that are satisfied by the lesson plan is also provided.
Most Learning Guides contain sections on Benefits of the Movie, Possible Problems, Helpful Background, Discussion Questions, Links to the Internet, and Bridges to Reading. The Discussion Questions are divided into three categories: Subject Matter, Social-Emotional Learning, and Moral-Ethical Emphasis.
