  • eLearning Monday, April 13, 2020--7th AND 8th grade Instructional Day

    I CAN...use models to represent atoms, elements, molecules, and compounds.

    I CAN...create models to represent the arrangement of subatomic particles in an atom (protons, neutrons, and electrons)

    I CAN...compare and contrast subatomic particles in an atom and elements

    I CAN...compare and contrast different elements according to chemical symbol, atomic number, and mass number

    Connections to Indiana Standards:

    • Physical Science 7.PS.1:  Draw, construct models, or use animations to differentiate between atoms, elements, molecules, and compounds.

    • Physical Science 8.PS.1:  Create models to represent the arrangement and charges of subatomic particles in an atom (protons, neutrons, and electrons).  Understand the significance that the currently 118 know chemical elements combine to form all the matter in the universe.
    • Physical Science 8.PS.2: Illustrate with diagrams (drawings) how atoms are arranged in simple molecules.  Distinguish between atoms, elements, molecules, and compounds.
    •  
    • Physical Science 8.PS.3:  Use basic information provided for an element (atomic mass, atomic number, symbol, and name) to determine its place on the Periodic Table.  Use this information to find the numer of protons, neutrons, and electrons in an atom.

    3.  Watch/listen to the video while Mrs. Hamann reads about some inspirational Americans (this will be ongoing EACH WEEK)

    First Generation 2 Warm Up

    PART B:  Instructional Day:  "What Makes Up an Atom? PART 1" Video AND "What Makes Up an Atom? PART 2" Video

    **You will need 4 sheets of any kind of paper, 3 different colored markers or crayons (or just a pen/pencil), and scissors**

    1.  Go to Google Classroom page

    2.  Open the "What Makes Up an Atom? PART 1" video and "What Makes Up an Atom? PART 2" video (Videos Linked Below Also...)

    3.  View and listen to Mrs. Hamann's video recordings for the instructional explanation to GET READY to for TOMORROW'S ASSIGNMENT Day.

    4.  ***Tomorrow will be our "Practice Day" where you will complete an assignment on Atoms
