Lesson Plan Day: 14
Teacher: P. Kirk
First 36 Elements of the periodic table. Scientific Notation. Metric
C.PM.1: Atomic structure, Evolution of atomic models/theory
C.PM.2: Periodic Table
Learn the correct spelling of the first 36 elements and the correct
capitalization of symbols. Learn Scientific Notation/Standard notation. Go
over the Metric prefix line.
The names of the first 36 elements spelled correctly and the symbols
written with correct capitalization.
Scientific Notation, Standard Notation, Exponents, (6) main Metric Prefixes
The students will take the element quiz. They will be given a blank
periodic table that has only element symbols. It should only take 10 minutes.
Monitor their progress and minimize cheating. At completion students will
group grade each others papers, correcting misspellings. Students will use the
back of the quiz as practice.
Convert numbers into and out of scientific notation. Use the practice
problem and check answers on provided key.
Convert measurements within the metric system using the prefix line. Check
answers against the provided key.
Teacher will copy required resources. Teacher will monitor students during
the quiz. Teacher will go over the correct spellings and break the element
names into phonetic segments to aid in correct spelling.
Go over notes about converting numbers into scientific or exponential
notation and back to standard notation. Teacher will monitor, check and
correct student progress.
Go over the use of the prefix line. Use decimal movement, fractional and
exponential forms to explain the conversion of one measurement into another
prefix. Teacher will monitor, check and correct student progress.
Copies of Element Quiz 1, Blank Periodic Tables with only Symbols
