PS-2.1     Compare the subatomic particles (protons, neutrons, electrons) of an atom with regard to mass,
           location, and charge, and explain how these particles affect the properties of an atom (including
           identity, mass, volume, and reactivity).

PS-2.3     Explain the trends of the periodic table based on the elements’ valence electrons and atomic

PS-2.4     Use the atomic number and the mass number to calculate the number of protons, neutrons, and/or
           electrons for a given isotope of an element.

          bound in a tiny nucleus.
     ο Understand that the nucleus is located in the
          center of an electron cloud.
     ο Understand that the electron cloud is the space
          where electrons are moving erratically in areas
          of space called energy levels.
     ο Understand that energy levels are regions of
          space at increasing distances from the nucleus.
     ο Electrons with more energy occupy energy
          levels further from the nucleus.
           There are a maximum number of electrons
               that can occupy each energy level and that
               number increases the further the energy
               level is from the nucleus.

PS 2.3
Understand the parts of the periodic table in order to
    understand trends
    ο Know that Period is the term used to describe a
        horizontal row on the periodic table.
    ο Know that Group and family are terms used to
        describe a vertical column on the periodic table.
    ο Locate major categories of elements such as the
        metals, metalloids, and nonmetals (metals and
        nonmetals were introduced in 7th grade).
             Metalloids should be identified as elements
             that have some characteristics of metals and
             some of nonmetals; they border the line
             between metals and nonmetals on the
             periodic table.
    ο Locate referenced elements when prompted with
        a period number or group number.
    ο Determine a given element’s atomic number
        (number of protons).
    ο Determine the number of electrons that an atom
        of a given element contains (the same as the
        number of protons-atomic number).
    ο Determine how many energy levels are occupied
        in a given element by recognizing that the period
        in which an element appears on the periodic

         table indicates the number of occupied energy
          For example, all elements in period 4 have
              four occupied energy levels.
          This is an introduction to quantum theory
              that will be studied in chemistry.
    ο    Recognize a given element’s atomic mass (the
         weighted average of the masses of the naturally
         occurring isotopes of the element), by
         recognizing that the atomic mass of an element
         is a decimal number. It is always larger than the
         atomic number and generally increases
         erratically for each successive element
    ο    Determine the number of valence electrons
         (electrons in the outer-most energy level), for
         selected groups of elements when given the
         element’s group number or name.

    the elements that the periodic table displays.
    ο Periodic trends in the number of valence
          From left to right across periods 1-3: (Not
              from left to right across periods 4-7 as a
              deeper understanding of quantum theory is
              prerequisite for understanding these trends.
               Atoms of all these elements contain one
                   more valence electron than the atoms of
                   the previous element.
          From top to bottom within any group:
               Atoms of all of the elements in a given
                   group contain the same number of
                             valence electrons.
Periodic trends in the number of energy levels:
          From left to right across any period:
               Atoms of all elements in a given period

                   have the same number of energy levels.
             From top to bottom within any group
               Atoms of each subsequent element
                   (from top to bottom) in any given group
                   contain one more energy level than the
                   atoms of the element above.
   Use knowledge of those trends to predict properties
    of elements relative to each other. (not specific
    values, but given two elements, determine which
    element will have the higher value for each of the
    trends listed above.)

Use the equation: mass number = number of protons +
number of neutrons and a periodic table to perform the
following calculations:

                    Stage 2- Determine Acceptable Evidence
What evidence will show that students understand?

                                              Performance Tasks:
                                   Element Advertisement Poster
Now that you have determined several ways to identify elements, you will be assigned an element to make
an advertisement poster on its everyday use. You want to make this poster as appealing as possible for your
immediate classmates and school community, so that people will take the time to read and learn about the
everyday use of several elements found on the Periodic Table

Your poster needs to include the following:

    1.   A Catchy Title and Atomic Model
    2.   Bohr Diagram and Lewis Structure
    3.   A Listing of physical and chemical properties of your assigned element (at least two each)
    4.   A picture of where this element is found and how is it used; in other words, its everyday
         application; (This picture should either be drawn, taken from the internet, a magazine, or xeroxed
         copy from a book).
    5.   Model of any isotopes (if the exist)

A one-paragraph typed caption for the above picture telling where the element is found and how it is used.
Give the element's atomic symbol. This information must be factual and written in your own words. If you
choose to do so, your one-paragraph caption can be written as a poem or jingle.

What other evidence needs to be collected in light of Stage 1 Desired Results?

                                                Other Evidence

        Self assessment of Bohr diagram and Lewis structure
        Reflection on how elements make up everyday objects they can identify and all other matter.

              Stage 2- Determine Acceptable Evidence (continued)

                            Assessment Task Blueprint
What understandings or goals will be assessed through this task?
Students will develop an advertising poster for an
element that show demonstrates the correct number
of sub-atomic particles, locations of particles,
properties of the element and everyday uses of that

 What criteria are implied in the standards and         What qualities must student work demonstrate
 understandings regardless of the task specifics?            to signify that standards were met?
        Correct calculation of sub-atomic particles.
        Pattern of valence electron and location on
         periodic table
        Everyday uses of elements

Through what authentic performance task will students demonstrate understanding?
Task Overview:

In creating their advertising posters, students will demonstrate and understanding of how sub-atomic
particles are determined. They will also show with their models that how the particle influence the property
of each element (metal, non-metal, stable unstable etc), its location on the periodic table and how elements
are used in everyday objects.

What student products and performances will provide evidence of desired understandings?
   Element cards should demonstrate that        Final performance task will show that students
       they can determine the correct # of sub-  understand how the particle influence the property
       atomic particles for a given element.     of each element (metal, non-metal, stable unstable
   Correct drawings show an understanding       etc), its location on the periodic table and how
       of valence electrons and placement of     elements are used in everyday objects.
       electrons in energy levels.

By what criteria will student products and performances be evaluated?
A rubric should be developed using the assignment
handout. Points should be assigned to each of the
criteria on the handout to determine how grade will
be calculated. Students can help teacher do this task
at the time the assignment is given so that students
will have a clear understanding of what is expected
of them.

                         Stage 3- Plan Learning Experiences

What sequence of teaching and learning experiences will equip students to engage with, develop, and demonstrate
 the desired understandings? Use the following sheet to list the key teaching and learning activities in sequence.
                    Code each entry with the appropriate initials of the WHERETO elements

   1. Begin with an entry question (What element makes up the matter we use in our daily
      lives?) to hook students into seeing the connection between the elements and matter
      relevant to their lives. Allow students to share what they know without passing
      judgment or providing additional information at this time. H

   2. Show pictures of everyday objects. Ask students what elements go into the make-up
      of each object. Choose some objects that are have elements in their make up that are
      not obvious. E1

   3. Introduce the essential questions: What are the sub-atomic particles? How do sub-
      atomic particles affect the properties of an atom? W

   4. Note the key terms students will be learning and place them all on the word wall at
      this time. Let students know that they will be discussed in detail as each term is
      introduced. View ETV Streamline SC clip Energy and the Chemistry of Life –
      Atoms and Elements. This clip goes into the structure of the atom and the subatomic
      particles. Atoms and Elements 3:33 E1

   5. Use handout one (Periodic Table Basic) to discuss the periodic table and the
      placement of the elements on the periodic table. E1

   6. Each student should present their element card, place it in the correct location and
      discuss the pattern. R

   7. Complete steps 6 and 7 on the handout as a review. E2

   8. Quiz on determining correct number of electrons, protons and electrons for an
      element. E2

   9. Allow students time to choose an element to research for the performance
      assessment and provide time to complete task. T & O

   10. Allow students time and input in developing the rubric for the assignment.

   11. Present posters to the class.
