Moles: Challenge!

After discussing what a mole is (6.02x10^23 things), challenge students to bring in a mole of something.

Some examples to get you started...

A mole is...
...58 g of salt
...18 g of water


This is a good activity to do for Mole Day (celebrated October 23 - sorry to be late in sharing, you'll have to save it for next year!).

I would leave this as an extra credit opportunity for my students, as it's really beyond some of them. But, if you work with older or higher level students, go ahead and make them all do it!
