Abstract. Foldables are a kind of graphic organizer that students use to sort and classify information about concepts. They can be used in any subject and in any setting as a means to increase the kinesthetic and visual learning associated with material. We present two Foldables that can be used in a college level chemistry class to help students understand two challenging topics, the Ideal Gas Law and Le Chatelier’s Principle.

Key Words: In the Classroom; general chemistry
