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.

Life Connection:

Students can use this information when solving problems in their lives. How so? Let’s find out!

Behavioral Norms:

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


Matter, element, atom, molecule, compound, pure substance, mixture
