Wednesday, 4/5/17- B Day

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 open to the unit cover page on page 67. On the piece of paper, sketch an atom. Label the nucleus, proton, neutron, and electron. Give the charges of the subatomic particles.
  2. Notebook (Periods 2 & 4)– 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.
  3. Check HW (except period 3)– Unit cover page 67
  4. Financial Literacy– Financial Football Module 4- How Creditworthy Are You? Work with your table group to complete module 4.


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