Objective #1: Matter & its Properties

Matter and its Properties: What makes matter matter?

a. I can categorize different examples of matter as either an atom, element, or molecule.
b. I can identify different properties of matter as either physical or chemical.
c. I can calculate the density, mass, or volume of a substance using the equation for density.

Vocabulary: matter, elements, atoms, molecules, compounds, physical property, chemical property, boiling point, melting point, density, mass, volume
Read the I can statements above. Think about the verbs--can you do what they tell you that you should be able to do?



BEFORE DOING ANY OF THE STEPS BELOW, GO TAKE THE PRE-ASSESSMENT FOR OBJECTIVE #1 IN JUNO

When you're finished, note which of the I can statements you need to work on--the I can statement is listed at the end of each question.  


IF YOU MISSED QUESTIONS #1, 2, 3, OR 4, DO THE ACTIVITIES BELOW. 

Objective #1a Activities:

1. In a new Google Doc, make up a sentence about each one of the words below that you think is true. Don't look any of the words up right now!

matter
elements
atoms
molecules
2. Read p. 1-2 of this document (make sure to make a copy). Insert a comment at each of the vocabulary words, stating what they are at a level 4 in your comment. Give an original example of each in your comment as well.

3. Watch video below, and make any adjustments to the comments you made in step #3 above.


4. Make sure you fix your notes after watching both videos, and make sure you show those notes to Mrs. E when you're finished!

IF YOU MISSED QUESTION #5, #6, #7, DO THE ACTIVITIES BELOW.

        Objective #1b Activities

1. Read p. 3 of this document (if you did the previous set of activities, you already have a copy). In a comment on the page, summarize what physical and chemical properties of matter are and how they are different at a level 4.

2. Watch the video below, making sure to take notes as instructed.




3. Still need help after the video?  Try it again with this practice sheet (you can do it on scratch paper or in a Google Doc) and then check your answers with Mrs. E.


IF YOU MISSED QUESTIONS #8, #9, OR #10, DO THE ACTIVITIES BELOW.

Objective #1c Activities:

1. Read p. 4-6 of this document (If you did any of the previous set of activities, you already have a copy), answering all questions while you read.  In a comment along the side, summarize what density is at a level 4, explain what it means when an object is more dense than another,  and then explain how to calculate mass, volume, and density using the equation or triangle.  Make sure you write in the equations like it tells you to do on p. 5.

Then, watch this video below:



2. Do these density practice sheets.  Only do three problems on each page. Check your answers with Mrs. E when you're done.

3. Missed more than three problems from step #2?  Do this practice sheet, (only do the first page) and then check your answers with Mrs. E.  Missed 2 or less?  Move on to the activities below.


DONE WITH ALL THE ACTIVITIES YOU NEED TO DO?  COMPLETE THE STEPS BELOW.


1. Do this Objective #1 Review.  Readjust your understanding of the Objective #1 I can statements in your How Am I Doing Spreadsheet.

2. Take the progress checks in Juno when you're ready.
