Week of April 6th, April 13th, and 20th, 2020

Read through each lesson in the text book provided. Please answer the end of lesson questions. The study guide provided is only for review of the material.  I have added some videos for you to watch also, although they are not needed to complete the assignments. . There will be an activity added for each lesson. If you would like you may share a picture of each activity. 


Lesson 1-  Read lesson 1 (Atoms and Elements) pages 56-65. Do questions page 64 (all) and 65 (1-8) to review. Please choose an element from the periodic table of elements and make a model or draw the model. Include the following in your model or drawing; nucleus, proton, neutron, electron, electron cloud, atomic number, atomic mass, element name, and chemical symbol. 


Lesson 2-  Read lesson 2 (Chemical Bonding) pages 66-72. Do questions page 72 (all) and 73 (1-5) to review. Please look around your home and write about or demonstrate a type of bond. The bonds we are focusing on in this lesson include; Ionic, Covalent, and Metallic. Remember that water is a type of covalent bond while salt is a type of Ionic bond. You may think of an original to illustrate on paper or write about. 


Lesson 3-  Read lesson 3 (Chemical Reactions) pages 76-86. Do questions page 86(all) and 87 (1-5). Please think about what a chemical reaction looks like. We see chemical reactions happening daily. Some examples include; baking a cake, watching a match being lit, or rust on a car. Look around your home and see if you can find a chemical reaction. Please share what you find with me.

The following are some resources we often use in our daily Science classes.  If you have Internet access, you and your family might find them useful as you work your way through the packets. 

 * Please note these resources are not mandatory and you will not need them to complete the work we are sending.

 Where your students will learn:

  • What makes an acid or base weak or strong?
  • What are examples of common acids and bases?
  • What kind of math do I need to know to understand acids and bases?
  • What happens when I add acid to base, or base to acid?
  • Where can we observe acids and bases at work in the natural world?

 



Thanks,
