Tuesday, 4/5/16- A Day

Learning Objective:

  • To interpret the information given in the periodic table to describe the arrangement of electrons on the energy levels around an atom

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Get out your science notebook and your Energy Levels Elements 1-20 activity handout; Looking at your periodic table on page 85, what element has 19 protons? How many electrons does that element have? How many neutrons?
  2. Advance Organizer- Periodic Table of Elements Brain POP animation
  3. 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. Tape Energy Levels Elements 1-20 activity handout as a flip page to page 89
  4. 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
  5. Understanding Connections- Write an Understanding Connections statement about electrons & energy levels on a Post-It note and stick it to the Understanding Connections pages (p.80-81) of your science notebook.

Homework:

Answer 2 questions on page 88.

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

Thursday, 3/31/16- B Day

Learning Objective:

  • To identify different atoms by the number of protons in the nucleus and realize that the number of electrons equals the number of protons in a neutral atom
  • To explain the meaning of atomic number and atomic mass

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Elements 1-20 p.84” (Left Side) and Head page 84 properly with “Periodic Table-Elements 1-20-3/31/16.”
  2. Advance OrganizerPeriodic Table Study Jam and The genius of Mendeleev’s periodic table TED Ed video
  3. Game– The Periodic Table- Model how to play the game and then begin! Trim and tape Periodic Table Elements 1-20 to page 84.
  4. Understanding Connections- Write an Understanding Connections statement about the Periodic Table on a Post-It note and stick it to the Understanding Connections pages (p.80-81) of your science notebook.

Tuesday, 3/29/16- B Day

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- “Application p.82” (Left Side); Head page 82 properly with “Protons, Neutrons, & Electrons-Application-3/29/16;” Try the Rotating Staircase optical illusion.
  2. SimulationBalloons & Static Electricity PhET- Visualize what happens to electrons when a charged balloon is brought to a wall with the simulation. Set up page 82 with title. Cut & tape diagram to page 82.Write captions beneath each diagram explaining what happened between the balloon and the wall in the simulation.
  3. DemonstrationBalloon and Stream of Water video- On page 82, record your observations of what happened when the charged balloon was held near a stream of water and explain why it happens.
  4. Understanding Connections- Write an Understanding Connections statement about protons, neutrons, & electrons on a Post-It note and stick it to the Understanding Connections pages (p.80-81) of your science notebook.
