    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, mass number, and properties

    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.
    • Physical Science 8.PS.4:  Identify organizational patterns (radius, atomic number, atomic mass, properties and radioactivity) on the Periodic Table.

    PART A:  Instructional Day WARM UP--Inspirational from the book First Generation AND "The Elements Song"

    1.  Go to Google Classroom page

    2.  Open the "First Generation 4" video and "The Elements Song" (Links below...)

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

    First Generation 4 Warm Up

    "The Elements Song"

    PART B:  Instructional Day:  "Intro to the Periodic Table of the Elements" Video

    Intro to the Periodic Table of the Elements

    1.  Go to Google Classroom page

    2.  Open the "Intro to the Periodic Table of the Elements" video (Linked Above...)

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

    4.  ***Tomorrow will be our "Practice Day" where you will complete a short assignment on the Periodic Table of the Elments and you will also CHOOSE one Element to RESEARCH and build a Google Slideshow about your Element with a template
