Unit S.M.A.R.T. Goal:
In this unit students will investigate materials that surround us and the properties that make them suitable for usage in. Success will be measured utilizing two labs and an exam. The goal is for a student average of 85%.
Students will be able explain the following by the end of the lesson today:
- The difference between atoms, elements, molecules, compounds, and mixtures.
- What a periodic table is and how to utilize it.
Students can use this information when solving problems in their lives. How so? Let’s find out!
- Learn from mistakes
- Personal electronics only when appropriate
Matter, element, atom, molecule, compound, pure substance, mixture

Unit 1 is supposed to be in. Your IS teacher’s have been informed of who is on track and who is not as of this morning. Ask your IS teacher if they have it.
Task #2: Visual Learners Venn Diagrams
Task #3: What is wrong with the following students Venn Diagram?
Task #4: Student Designed Venn Diagrams
Now that you have seen what can go wrong with a Venn Diagram. You are going to design your own to show the true relationship between these categories. I will provide you the card stock to complete this assignment.
Task #5: Student Developed Venn Diagram
Review Jeopardy Game – Atoms, Elements, Molecules, and Compounds
The Unit 2 Lab project. Remember the blank periodic table you got during your last class session? You are going to be filling it out! We are only focused on four pieces of data per element though. Atomic number, Atomic weight, Name, and symbol. After you finish your periodic table you will be doing a research projects on the elements. First create a Google slideshow and then chose 27 elements. 3 from each of the following groups:
- Noble Gases
- Other Nonmetals
- Post-Transition Metals
- Transition Metals
- Alkaline Earth Metals
- Alkali Metals
For each element each slide needs to contain the following:
- Atomic Number
- Atomic Weight
- Life Connection (Hint: use Abridged Periodic Table link below)

Ticket Out the Door:
At the end of today’s lesson I will be passing out Post-It notes. On the Post-It note you receive write down the most interesting thing you learned today and the most confusing thing you heard and put it on the inside of the classroom door as you leave today.
- Unit 1 revisions if you need to. That unit needs to get in promptly so it can be given to your teachers.
- Continue working on Unit 2 packet.
- Look over the Periodic Table that was handed out and fill it out.
- Create your periodic table from Task #7.
