I am a chemistry teacher who loves to show all students how chemistry impacts their lives. Students are more responsive when they are shown why chemistry is important to understand.
I try to find as many everyday items to relate chemistry to. Unfortunately this can become expensive. I am also saving to purchase a projector. Most of the topics covered in chemistry are very difficult to visualize. There are many wonderful websites that illustrate these concepts. For instance the following website show the electron orbitals and helps the students understand.
This website shows how an activity series in created at the atomic level.
I hope you will consider helping us.
