Lesson Plan Day: 31 10/4
Teacher: P. Kirk
Topic: Structure of the atom. Types, location, charge and number of
C.PM: STRUCTURE AND PROPERTIES OF MATTER
C.PM.1: Atomic structure - Evolution of atomic models/theory
Define an atom. Learn the evolution of atomic models. Discuss the
types, charges and location of particles within the atom.
Nucleus, proton, electron, neutron
Students will examine the historical evolution of atomic models. The
students will work with partners on the Structure of Atom Packet to develop a
model that correctly represents the current understanding of the subatomic
particles, their charges and location within the atom. IF additional work is
needed, then students will work on Atomic Structure (Skill Practice 8).
The teacher will go through summary notes or PowerPoint notes on the past
and current atomic models. The teacher will discuss the subatomic
particle experiments that lead to their discovery and the type, charge, mass
and location of those particles.
Copies of Chapter 3 Schedule, Evolution of Atomic Models, Structure of the
Atom Packet, Atomic Structure, Notes and PowerPoints
Teacher should be spot checking student progress on the Atom Packet. It
could be collected for 10 to 20 points for completion. If Atomic Structure is
assigned, then It should be graded for 15 points for correctness.
