Tuesday, 4/4/17- A Day- Advisory Schedule

Core Ideas:

  • Each atom has a charged sub-structure consisting of a nucleus, which is made of protons and neutrons, surrounded by electrons.
  • The periodic table orders elements horizontally by the number of protons in the atom’s nucleus and places those with similar chemical properties in columns. The repeating patterns of this table reflect patterns of outer electron states.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Protons, Neutrons, Electrons p.71” (Right Side). Head page 71 properly with “Protons, Neutrons, & Electrons-Investigation-4/4/17.”
  2. Investigation– What makes objects attract or repel each other? Review Data Table- Use what you know about charges to explain your observations.
  3. Advanced OrganizerThe science of static electricity TED-Ed video
  4. Graphic Organizer– Introduction handout questions 1-3
  5. Notebook– Trim and tape Introduction to page 71. Tape Activity investigation as a flip page to page 71. Add the following key terms to the Index- Atom, Proton, Neutron, Electron, Nucleus.
  6. Check HW-Unit cover page 67


Last day for Density Writing revisions is Friday, 4/7
