Thursday, 1/8/15

Learning Objectives:

  • Illustrate the differences in the physical and chemical properties of a molecule and the individual atoms that bond to form that molecule.
  • Differentiate between a mixture and an element or compound and identify examples.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now-Open your science notebook to your homework on p.60 and complete the “Hink Pink’s.”
  2. Review HW- Textbook Summary on ISN p.60- How are atoms, elements, molecules, & compounds connected?
  3. Graphic Organizer- Atoms, Elements, Molecules, Compounds– Model how to work on the Graphic Organizer with full class, then work cooperatively to complete Graphic Organizer. Remember when you work cooperatively, you help each other learn more and each person works!
  4. Collect Interactive Science Notebooks
