Itty, Bitty Living Space: A “look” at the unseen

Heather Nash, Science, East Mecklenburg High School

 Curriculum Unit (pdf) 


This unit relates what the teacher learned in a technology about nanotechnology to practical applications in the classroom.  This curriculum unit will provide teachers with activities they can use to incorporate when teaching a unit on properties or states of matter.  This unit provides hands on learning experiences for students to practice what they’re learning.  It also provides links to videos and ideas for how to demonstrate properties that students might struggle with. The activities provided could be modified and adapted to fit most grade-level’s science curriculum, provided it teaches basic chemical properties.  Lab activities are safe for students to perform with minimal support from adults.
