This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, asks students to suggest similarities and differences between various pairs of chemical systems presented as simple diagrams, such as iron and sulfur, water and sugar solution and a variety of particle models. There are thirty-six different sets of diagrams in this resource which may be selected to match teaching topics.

The activity provides an opportunity for students to undertake a task with no single ‘right’ answer, providing scope for students to demonstrate creativity and lateral thinking. Students are also given the opportunity to indicate which responses they feel are important to chemistry to allow them to distinguish significant from trivial comparisons.
