Chemistry Now

NBC Learn has a series of units exploring how chemistry contributes to everyday life, with lesson plans from the National Science Teachers Association.  Each unit has videos, along with supplemental materials such as lesson plans, articles, statistics and animations. 

Kids can explore topics such as gas and sugar reactions in a hamburger bun, how salt crystals melt ice crystals, how aromatic polyamides are used to produce bulletproof vests and helmets, and how the hormones adrenaline and cortisol trigger fright or flight responses in us.
