Friday, 4/22/16- A Day- Earth Day

Learning Objective:

  • Use the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons to draw a model of the atom, identify the element, and determine the mass and charge.
  • Predict how addition or subtraction of a proton, neutron, or electron will change the element, the charge, and the mass.
  • Use the element name, mass, and charge to determine the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your daily planner; Get out the handout for the Build an Atom PhET simulation and enter Answer Sheet CFA#3 into the Google Form on Google Classroom.
  2. The Sagan SeriesThe Pale Blue Dot
  3. SimulationBuild an Atom PhET- With a partner, build an atom out of protons, neutrons, and electrons and see how the element, charge, and mass change. Then play a game to test your ideas! As you work through the simulation, complete the activity handout.
