An Exciting Lesson on Hydrocarbons

November 6, 2013

from Holy Cross 8th grader teacher, Mrs. Patterson –

Bill Schneider, Holy Cross parishioner, parent, and husband to Holy Cross’ reading specialist, Jeanine Schneider, visited the 8th grade science classes on October 17. Mr. Schneider taught the class by giving a hands-on presentation about hydrocarbons.
During the first quarter the 8th graders have been learning about ionic and covalent bonding while studying chemical reactions. Mr. Schneider provided them with a presentation of hydrocarbons. Just ask any 8th graders how many carbons are in butane or acetylene and why long carbon chains burn black smoke.
