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:

We have a special treat today! Mr. Gorski is guiding us through a kinaesthetic activity about the periodic table. Meet in our classroom and I’ll go with you to room B-13.

To my students:

I am absent from school today. We have a quiz next week to assess what you have learned about the Periodic Table and Atoms. The crossword puzzle is to help you review the content for the quiz. Remember to be respectful & cooperative to the substitute and use your self-control.

Warmly, Mrs. Vigliotti

Learning Activities:

  1. Complete the Elements of the Periodic Table crossword puzzle and Element Word Search handout. Use your periodic tables on page 85 of your notebook for reference.
  2. Periods 3 & 6– Complete either the Atom or The Periodic Table crossword puzzle handout.
  3. Use your vocabulary flashcards with your cooperative learning partner to quiz each other on vocabulary.

Homework:
