Tuesday, 1/31/17- B Day- Early Dismissal Schedule due to Inclement Weather

Core Ideas:

  • Substances are made from different types of atoms, which combine with one another in various ways. Atoms form molecules that range in size from two to thousands of atoms.
  • Each pure substance has characteristic physical properties (for any bulk quantity under given conditions) that can be used to identify it.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now–Lab Safety Checklist
