Thursday, 4/27/17- A Day- Flex 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- “Energy Levels p.76″ (Left Side) and “Energy Levels p.77” (Right Side). Head page 76 properly with “Energy Levels-Identifying Patterns-4/27/17” and head page 77 properly with “Energy Levels-Atom Model-4/27/17.”
  2. Notebook– Set up homework questions on page 76.
  3. Notes- Energy Level Models & the Periodic Table p.77Electrons surround the nucleus of an atom in regions called energy levels. Add Key Words period and group to the index at the back of your science notebook.
  4. Atom Models– Model how to arrange electrons within the energy levels for first atom model of each period. Students fill in the correct number of electrons in energy levels for the rest of the atom models in Energy Levels Elements 1-20 activity sheet. (I do… We do… You do…) Tape Energy Levels Elements 1-20 activity handout as a flip page to page 77.

Homework:

Answer 2 questions on page 76.

  • 1. What pattern do you see in the periods (rows)?
  • 2. What pattern do you see in the groups (columns)?

Wednesday, 4/26/17- 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– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Parts of an Atom p.74 (Left Side). Head page 74 properly with “Parts of an Atom-Diagram-4/26/17.”
  2. Energy Level Atom Model– Use the energy level model template and the “electrons” to build a model of an atom of the element that you are assigned. Cut it out and tape it to page 74 of your science notebook. (I do…We do… You do…)
  3. Notes- Energy Level Models & the Periodic Table p.77Electrons surround the nucleus of an atom in regions called energy levels. Add Key Words period and group to the index at the back of your science notebook.

Tuesday, 4/25/17- 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– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Parts of an Atom p.75 (Right Side). Head page 75 properly with “Parts of an Atom-Key Terms-4/24/17.”
  2. Periods 2, 4, & 7- Complete Driving Question Summary Table– Complete the Summary Table on pages 68-69 for the Periodic Table Activities on pages 72-73.
  3. Advance OrganizerJust How Small Is an Atom? and The Uncertain Location of Electrons TED Ed videos and Atomic Structure PBS interactive tutorial
  4. Key terms- Trim & tape parts of an atom definitions to page 75. Add page 75 to proton, electron, & neutron in Index.
  5. Atomic Diagram– Use the energy level model template and the “electrons” to build a diagram of an atom of the element that you are assigned. Cut it out and tape it to page 74 of your science notebook.

Friday, 4/22/16- A Day- Earth Day

Learning Objective:

  • Use the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons to draw a model of the atom, identify the element, and determine the mass and charge.
  • Predict how addition or subtraction of a proton, neutron, or electron will change the element, the charge, and the mass.
  • Use the element name, mass, and charge to determine the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your daily planner; Get out the handout for the Build an Atom PhET simulation and enter Answer Sheet CFA#3 into the Google Form on Google Classroom.
  2. The Sagan SeriesThe Pale Blue Dot
  3. SimulationBuild an Atom PhET- With a partner, build an atom out of protons, neutrons, and electrons and see how the element, charge, and mass change. Then play a game to test your ideas! As you work through the simulation, complete the activity handout.
