Following are a couple of videos to provide students with examples of how to solve a couple of tasks in chemistry.

Building chloromethane

Using Lewis dot structures to determine how a molecule will bond.

Ester synthesis from acetic acid and ethanol

The exact mechanism is more complicated than shown here, but the basic atom movement between reactants and products is accurate.
