Friday, 5/5/17- A Day- SBAC Schedule

SBAC Schedule
8:23-9:58 SBAC (No Periods 2 & 4)
10:01-10:47 Period 1
10:50-11:36 Period 3
11:41-1:01 (includes lunch as usual with usual times) Period 5
1:04-1:50 Period 6
1:53-2:45 Period 7

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– Retrieval Practice- Turn to your partner and explain everything that you have learned about atoms and the periodic table. Then open up your science notebook to your Atoms and the Periodic Table Unit starting on page 66 and check if you missed anything.
  2. Assessment– Atoms & Periodic Table Quiz
  3. Educational videoBill Nye Atoms & Molecules
  4. Collect science notebooks

Learning Activities (Periods 2 & 3):

  1. Do Now–Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and open to your Periodic Table on page 73. Looking at your periodic table on page 73, the atoms of what element have 20 protons? How many electrons do those atoms have? How many neutrons?
  2. Comparison– Observe the chemical reaction of different elements and relate this to their location on the periodic table: sodium & potassium in water vs calcium in water
  3. Notebook Work– Tape Energy Levels Elements 1-20 activity handout as a flip page to page 77.
