This week we will work with different models for Atomic Structure!
Monday: Bohr Model Candy activity (use candy as electrons for electron placement practice)
Tuesday: Electron Dot Model notes and assignment
Wednesday: Atomic Structure Review activity
Thursday: Atomic Structure TEST
Friday: Color a periodic table for metals and nonmetals; Periodic Table Scavenger hunt
This week we will be studying the structure of the atom and how to read the periodic table.
Monday: Atomic Structure Notebook assignment. Their Atomic Theory Timeline presentations are due at the start of class today.
Tuesday: Build An Atom Virtual Lab, If extra time: Review element symbols Kahoot
Wednesday: How to Read the Periodic Table notebook entry; Periodic Table Practice assignment (finish for homework if you do not finish in class)
Thursday: Bohr model notebook entry; Bohr model electron coloring
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;
