Wednesday: Spa Vandalism Lab, Day 1
Thursday: Spa Vandalism Lab, Day 2
Friday: Matter Review Activity, to recap what we’ve learned through our labs the past 2 weeks
Here are the objective we will focus on this week along with memorizing element symbols:
6(B) relate chemical properties of substances to the arrangement of their atoms or molecules;
6(C) analyze physical and chemical properties of elements and compounds such as color, density, viscosity, buoyancy, boiling point, freezing point, conductivity, and reactivity;
7(B) recognize that chemical changes can occur when substances react to form different substances and that these interactions are largely determined by the valence electrons;
