Begin lesson by telling students you have a bag of items that are all somehow related to each other. You will pull two items out at a time. Students will write in their notebooks what the items are, and predict how the items are related. Allow several minutes per pair of items for students to make predictions individually, and then share their predictions as a class. Ask probing questions were appropriate to facilitate discussions.
Once carbon has been mentioned, or after most of your items have been revealed, share with the classroom that all of the items in the bag are made of carbon. Ask students what comes to mind when you mention the word “carbon.”
Begin the “what is carbon” powerpoint to continue the discussion about carbon. Below are main points for each slide. If time allows, you can discuss all the main points.
