Physical Science Plans

 

UNIT 8

Properties of Atoms and the Periodic Table

Objectives:

Students will:

Discuss and model the relative size and placement of sub-atomic particles

Illustrate the placement of electrons in the first twenty elements using energy levels and orbitals

Distinguish among atoms, ions, and isotopes

Model the valence electrons using electron dot structures (Lewis electron dot structures)

Explain the role of valence electrons in forming chemical bonds

Explain the role of valence electrons in determining chemical properties

Look at the historical development of the atomic model.

Apply scientific method to conduct a controlled experiment

Students shall design and safely conduct a scientific inquiry to solve valid problems.

Students shall use mathematics, science equipment, and technology as tools to communicate and solve physical science problems.

Students shall demonstrate an understanding of historical trends in physical science.

Frameworks: C.3.PS.1, C.3.PS.2., C.3.PS.3, C.3.PS.4, C.3.PS.5, C.3.PS.6, C.3.PS.7, C.3.PS.8, NS.9.PS.1; NS.9.PS.2; NS.9.PS.3; NS.9.PS.4; NS.10.PS.1; NS.10.PS.2; NS.10.PS.3; NS.10.PS.4; NS.10.PS.5; NS.10.PS.6;NS.11.PS.1; NS.11.PS.2; NS.11.PS.5
