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– Get out your science notebook and open to pages 52-53. Read what you wrote for the Sinking and Floating Activity. Be prepared to share with the class what your group wrote for each column.
  2. Driving Question Summary Table– Complete the Summary Table on pages 52-53 for the Sinking and Floating Activities on pages 62-65.
  3. Anchoring Phenomenon/Model- Watch the person floating on the Dead Sea video segment again. Create a final model about how you think the person is able to float on top of the water instead of swimming in the Dead Sea. (Cooperative table group)
