Physical Science Lesson Plan #12 (10-21-2019)


Periodic Table of Elements





Unit S.M.A.R.T. Goal:

In this unit students will develop and use models in addition to using mathematics and computational thinking. Specifically in the field of Patterns, Energy and Matter, and Types of Chemical Interactions. The goal is for a student average of 85%.



Students will be able to better explain the following by the end of the  lesson today:

  • Structure and Properties of Matter
  • Chemical Reactions
  • Types of Interaction


Behavioral Norms:

  • Learn from mistakes
  • Tolerance
  • Participate
  • Personal electronics only when appropriate

We are going to look over a case on a man named Kazem “Kaz” Pourghafari. This man may or may not be involved in the death of a woman named Amanda Alley. Once we have gathered enough evidence on Kaz, in the summary portion of our Cornell notes you will decide, based on evidence, if you believe he was or was not involved.
