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, 4/7/17- B Day- Early Dismissal

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. Science Friday- This Fish Sucks
  2. Build An Atom PhET simulation- With a partner, use what you have learned about the structure of an atom to build an atom out of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Be sure that your atom is stable and neutral. What do you have to do to the atom to make it a positive charge? What do you have to do to make it a negative charge? Draw a sketch of your atom and explain where the protons, neutrons, and electrons are located. Explain why the atom was neutral and what you had to do to the atom to make it have a positive or negative charge.

Homework:

Have an enjoyable, restful vacation and come back ready to learn more science!

Tuesday, 4/4/17- 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– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Protons, Neutrons, Electrons p.71” (Right Side). Head page 71 properly with “Protons, Neutrons, & Electrons-Investigation-4/4/17.”
  2. Investigation– What makes objects attract or repel each other? Review Data Table- Use what you know about charges to explain your observations.
  3. Advanced OrganizerThe science of static electricity TED-Ed video
  4. Graphic Organizer– Introduction handout questions 1-3
  5. Notebook– 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.
  6. Check HW-Unit cover page 67

Homework:

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

Thursday, 3/24/16-Early Dismissal Schedule

Learning Objective:

  • To explain, in terms of electrons and protons, why a charged object is attracted or repelled by another charged object
  • To explain that the attraction between positive protons and negative electrons holds an atom together

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now-Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Protons, Neutrons, & Electrons p.83” (Right Side) and Head page 83 properly with “Protons, Neutrons, & Electrons-Investigation-3/23/16.”
  2. Advance Organizer- Atoms: Protons, Neutrons, Electrons Study Jam and Atomic Model (click here for free version) BrainPOP animations
  3. Cue- Protons, Neutrons, & Electrons- As a full class, review parts of an atom, atomic attractions & charges, & electron clouds/energy levels. Work with your learning partner to answer questions 1, 2, & 3. Share answers in class. Trim and tape handout to page 83.
