Go for the gold at the Mole-ympic Games: A Mole Day chemistry lesson plan.

Mole day chemistry lesson

High School

In case you haven’t heard (and not many have) October 23 is National Mole Day, when people from all walks of life come together to celebrate Avogadro’s Number (6.02 x 1023). Get it? 10/23? 1023? Anyway, there’s no better way to celebrate than with a Mole-ympic Games Triathlon in which students break into teams to define, measure, and identify a mole of material through three separate events.

 

This high-school activity has loads of great suggestions to get the entire class – and even the entire school – in on the fun to determine the gold, silver, and bronze medalists. Happy Mole Day!
