Chemistry “First Fives”

Chemistry class starts each day with a “First Five” – a prompt to which students respond in writing. First Five refers to roughly the first five minutes of class. Some days, the prompt will be a review of a concept previously taught, while at other times it will be a thinking/writing prompt.

Students turn in their responses to the First Fives at the end of each unit. Students who miss class are still accountable for the First Fives that they missed on days that they were absent (or late to class). It is not sufficient to write “absent” for that date in your packet.

ALL of the First Fives are archived here throughout the year, so you can go back to days that you missed prior to the end of the unit and complete them.
