This high school chemistry lesson begins with the phenomenon of the popularity and widespread use of lithium-based batteries. Students experience the phenomenon through a video of an electric race car, as well as by making connections to their own experiences with a wide variety of devices that use lithium batteries. 

Students engage in sense-making through a series of investigations, readings, and class discussions to obtain data and information on the chemical reactions used by batteries to store and supply energy to devices. They develop and revise models of metal activity series and batteries and use these models to explain the relationships between components and chemical reactions in a battery system, and why lithium makes such a good candidate for supplying energy in a battery.
