Physical Science Lesson Plan #17 (11-6-2019)


Chemical Formulas





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 be conducting a mock trial on the case regarding a man named Kazem “Kaz” Pourghafari. This man may or may not be involved in the death of a woman named Amanda Alley. We are going to be using our notes from unit 4 and trial procedure to conduct this mock trial.


Trial Resources:

Team Sign Up Sheet -> Kazem Prosecution/Defense Teams

Prezi -> Was it Murder? A Critical Analysis of Amanda Alley Fire

Case Breakdown -> Was it Murder – Analysis of Amanda Alley Fire



  • Get any past units caught up ! Do not let your work snowball!
  • Cornell Notes and reading for Unit 4 should be done as of today.
