Lesson Plan Day: 11
Teacher: P. Kirk
Determine the relationships between different classifications of matter.
Differentiate between physical and chemical characteristics and explain the
differences between physical and chemical changes.
C.PM.1: Atomic structure , Evolution of atomic models/theory
Complete practice and be able to identify matter as a pure substance
(element or compound) or a mixture (homogeneous or heterogeneous.)
Complete practice and be able to identify changes in matter as physical or
chemical changes and determine whether properties are physical or chemical
Begin the two day lab activity Physical and Chemical Changes Lab.
Chapter 1 Key Terms
The student will read 1.1, practice and check answers for the worksheets
Matter vs Mixture / Mixtures. They will read 1.2 and 1.3 Physical and Chemical
Properties / Changes. They will over three days also complete EA1a and EA 1b.
Students should complete making their elements cards and visit Phet: States
of Matter Basics.
Students will work with lab partners to complete the lab identifying
different Physical and Chemical Changes based on pre-reaction and
post-reaction Physical and chemical properties.
The teacher will lead and monitor student progress through the reading and
the practice worksheets. Teacher will assist as students complete EA1a and
Teacher will copy lab materials and have prepared 7 different lab stations,
each with a reaction of sorts that must be observed and determine whether the
reaction involves a physical or chemical change.
Copies of Matter vs Mixture / Mixtures, Physical vs Chemical
Properties / Changes will be made available for students.
EA1a and EA 1b will be launched and published for student access.
The 7 station Physical and Chemical changes lab will be set up at students
Worksheets will be checked against available answer sheets. EA1a and EA1b
will be submitted as grades. Students will have the Physical and Chemical
Changes Lab to determine level of understanding and comprehension and
interconnectedness of the vocabulary and concepts.
