C Layer Assignments

Goal 1: State the law or recognize examples for the laws of conservation of mass, definite proportions, and multiple proportions.

1. Draw a picture of each of these laws using atoms that make up a compound or that are involved in a chemical reaction. (3 points)
2. Make a note card that gives the definition for each law and then has an example underneath the definition.       (3 points)

Goal 2: List the elements of Dalton’s atomic theory and explain any weakness in the hypothesis.

1. Make a sheet of paper that has the elements of Dalton’s atomic theory on one side and then next to it tell whether or not it has been proven false. If false list why it is false. (4 points)
2. List the elements of Dalton’s atomic theory and draw a picture that would help you remember that element.     (3 points)

Goal 3: Differentiate among the properties of the electron, proton, and neutron; describe the size and shape of the atom and its parts.

1. Create a power point that describes the different parts (proton, electron, and neutron) of the atom. List their locations, symbols, purpose charge, and mass. (5 points)
2. Draw a picture of what you think the atom looks like from our discussion and label the parts. (5 points)
3. Fill out an atom chart, which you can obtain from Mr. Stock. (8 points)

Goal 4: Be able to name the scientist, model and experiments that led to our current understanding of the atom.

1. Name each scientist that contributed to our current understanding of the atom. Then draw a picture of the experiment and or model that he proposed. (8 points)

Goal 5: Define atomic number, isotopic mass, and atomic mass.

1. Come up with a song that would help the class remember each of these. (5 points)
2. Write a poem that would help the class remember what these are. (5 points)

Goal 6: List the various families of elements and recognize their members by name or electronic structure.

1. Color a periodic table to show the different families as well as metals transition metals (semi metals) and nonmetals. Then on the back of the table make a key that tells some of the properties of each group or family. (8 points)
2. Create a song that would help the class remember the different families of the periodic table. (5 points)

Goal 7: List the symbols of common elements and differentiate between a symbol and a formula.

1. Memorize the names for the following element symbols. (8 points)

H, He, Li, Be, B, C, N, O, F, Ne, Na, Mg, Al, Si, P, S, Cl, K, Ca, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, Ag, Au, Hg

Chapter Work

1. Do packet for Atomic Theory. (15 points)
2. Do a cross word puzzle using at least ten of the definitions from this chapter. (5 points)
3. Do a chapter outline on chapter 18. (10 points)
4. Take notes from lecture. (3 points per goal)
5. Do definition worksheet for chapter or flash cards. (5 points)
6. Do chapter 18 problems checking concepts 1-10 and thinking critically 11-14. (8 points)

B Layer Assignments

1. Make a model of one of the experiments that led to our current understanding of the atom. You may make this out of any thing you like but food is always nice. (15 points)

1. Do the Martian periodic table. (15 points)
2. Do lab with electron cloud Idea. (15 points)

1. Make a model of an atom you can use any material that you would like but food is always nice. (15 points)

1. Create a board game that we could play that would incorporate all the concepts we have learned this chapter. (15 points)

1. Pretend that you are a microscopic person that lives in an atom. Describe your life and routines. Tell us about any problems or enjoyable things that happen. Be creative. This paper must be at least 2 pages double spaced 11 font. (15 points)

A Layer Assignments

1. Should we spend the money to build a more powerful Hadron accelerator to study the atom more in depth? (8 points)
2. Should we use nuclear energy as an energy source for our nation? (8 points)
3. Create a debate on whether or not nuclear energy is a good source of energy to pursue. You must debate both sides. (8 points)
4. Is the current model of the atom correct? (8 points)

 A B C D F 100 - 90 89 - 80 79 - 70 69 - 60 59 - 0

• To get a B you must earn the points as well as do at least 2 assignments in the B category.

• To get an A you must earn the points as well as do at least 1 assignments in the A category.

Rubric for Oral Defense C Layer

Students will demonstrate their understanding of the goal covered by defending their C layer assignments with an Oral defense.

• First student must show a completed assignment in order to do an oral defense.
• Depending upon the assignment the teacher will tell the student how many questions will be asked them and what each question will be worth. (Example: If the assignment is to do a vocabulary sheet for the unit and it is worth 5 points then teacher might say I will ask you to define five words I pick. Each correct answer will be worth one point.)
• Teacher will ask student and they will give their response.
• Teacher will sign off on work sheet how many points the student earned.

Rubric for B and A layer Assignments

This is for non lab B and A layer assignments.

Rubric for B layer labs

1. Title:

As stated in class.

1. Purpose:

State what it is you are trying to determine with this lab.

Points 1

1. Materials and Equipment:

List all materials used and draw a picture of the equipment used

Points 3
