Chronologically Follows the PowerPoint Slideshow and Unit Notes for a Fantastic Review / Assessment of Learning.
The Atoms and Periodic Table unit covers science topics associated with sub-atomic particles, molecules, and The Periodic Table of
the Elements. (See list below for more topics covered). This unit includes an interactive and engaging PowerPoint Presentation of
2000+ slides with built in class notes (Red Slides), lab activities, project ideas, discussion questions, assessments (Quiz Wiz), and
challenge questions with answers.  Text is in large print (32 font) and is placed at the top of each slide so it can be read from all angles
of a classroom.  Also included is a 13 page assessment / bundled homework package that chronologically follows the PowerPoint
slideshow, as well as a 8 page modified assessment.  14 pages of class notes with images are also included for students who require
modifications, as well as answer keys to both of the assessments for support professionals, teachers, and homeschool parents.  30+
video and academic links are provided and a slide within the slideshow cues teacher / parent when the videos are most relevant to
play. Video shorts usually range from 2-7 minutes.  Two PowerPoint review games (110+ slides each) are included.  Answers to the
PowerPoint review games are provided in PowerPoint form so students can self-assess.  Lastly, several class games such as guess
the hidden picture beneath the boxes, and the find the hidden owl somewhere within the slideshow are provided.  
Difficulty rating of 9 (Ten is most difficult).  
Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)

MS.PS1.1 (Develop model to describe atomic composition)
•        Students do many Lewis Dot structures, build models with clay, see atomic molecules
and answer questions.  Some activities include valence electrons. This standard is addressed
throughout unit.

MS.PS1.3 (Gather and interpret info that synthetic material come from natural resources and
impact society)
•        Students learn about hydrocarbons and chemical change among other chemicals
throughout unit.

MS.PS1.2 (Analyze and interpret data on properties of substances before and after a chemical
•        Students collect data in several experiments before and after a reaction.  Several
activities in Part IV, with Endo and Exothermic Reactions also address changes after chemical
reactions, video links, slides, and more are provided.

MS.PS1.5 (Develop and use a model to describe Law Conservation of Mass, total number of
atoms does not change in a reaction)
•        This unit goes over the boundary (Oh No!) and includes balancing chemical equations.  
Many slides just before balancing equations involve the students and address Laws
Conservation of Mass and Energy.

MS.PS1.6 (Design a project to construct, test, and modify device that either releases or
absorbs thermal energy by chemical processes).
•        Students create elephant toothpaste (exothermic reactions), and conduct endothermic
reactions with Alka-Seltzer and water.  Slides, video links, and more address this standard.  
Data is collected in the form of temperature.

HS.PS1.2 (Construct and revise an explanation for the outcome of a simple chemical
reaction based on the outermost electron states of atoms, trends in the periodic table,
and knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties).
•        Many chemical reactions are described in the unit.  Several are conducted as
either demonstrations or lab activities.  Electron orbitals and trends in the periodic
table are considered quite considerably. Combustion of alcohol, metals bonding to
nonmetals (ionic), acids and bases, baking soda and vinegar, electrolysis of water,
balancing chemical equations, and more.  Notes, slides, video links, academic links,
animations and more are included.

HS.PS1.4 (Develop a model to illustrate that the release or absorption of energy from
a chemical reaction system depends upon the changes in total bond energy).
•        This standard is addressed endothermic and exothermic reactions with visuals,
diagrams, and equations.  Emphasis is also placed that energy is conserved during
these reactions.
Below are just a few of the typical standards that this unit addresses for
those that are interested.  This unit does cover many topics / standards and
concepts that are not described below.

●Keep a journal record of observations, recognizing patterns, summarizing
findings, and reflecting on the observations.
●Recognize that all matter is composed of minute particles called atoms,
and explain that all substances are composed of atoms, each arranged into
different groupings.
●Identify elements as substances that contain only one kind of atom and
explain that elements do not break down by normal laboratory reactions,
such as heating, exposure to electric current, and reaction to acid.
●Recognize that over one hundred elements exist, and identify the periodic
table as a tool for organizing the information about them.
●Identify elements according to their common properties, such as highly
reactive metals, less reactive metals, highly reactive non-metals and almost
non-reactive gases.
●Identify substances by their physical and chemical properties, such as
magnetism, conductivity, density, solubility, boiling and melting points.
●Organize observations and data into tables, charts and graphs.
•        Addressed in part V, after the students have a strong understanding of electron orbitals.  Students learn that groups in the periodic table have similarities in
their valence electrons and similar properties.  Ionization energies are briefly discussed.  Reactivity of metals is addressed, and reactions with oxygen in part IV.

HS.PS2.6 (Communicate scientific information about why the molecular-level structure is important in the functioning of the designed materials).
•        Properties of metals, nonmetals, and semimetals are addressed.

5.PS1.1. (Develop a model that matter is made of particles too small be seen).

5.PS1.2. (Measure and graph quantities to provide evidence that when a change in a substance occurs, heating, cooling, mixing, the total weight of matter is
•        This standard is addressed as a review when students balance chemical equations.

5.PS1.3. (Make observation and measurements to identify materials based on their properties).  
•        This standard is addressed when students investigate densities of metals.

5.PS1.4. (Conduct an investigation to determine whether the mixing of two or more substances results in new substances).
•        This standard is addressed throughout in a number of activities.

3-5.ETS1.1. (Make observation and measurements to identify materials based on their properties).  

3-5.ETS1.2 (Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or want that included specified criteria for success with materials, time, or cost)

3-5.ETS1.3 (Generate and compare multiple possible solution to a problem based on how well each is to meet criteria and constraints of the problem)
