The Periodic Table – Elementary Level Science Series Session 4

The Periodic Table - Elementary Level Science Series Session 4

This 3-week Session is a great introduction to the periodic table. It will also be a solid class for those students who want to dig deeper!  I will be covering the elements on the Periodic table, and what the meaning is of the rows and columns (periods & families.)

The Periodic Table is one of the 4 sessions in the Elementary Level Science Series. Each session of the Elementary Level Science Series meets 3 times over a span of 3 weeks. Each 3-week Session includes important, foundational science topics, scientific modeling, focused definitions of core science terms and phrases all in an engaging, high-interest format.

Each Session of the Elementary Level Science Series has hands-on labs that have been thoughtfully paired with written materials. Materials will be emailed 2-weeks before the class meets with guided readings, materials list, lab instructions as well as suggestions for extra activities and how to use the topics and material for project-based unit studies. During the live sessions, students can ask questions as we go over the material. Then we will work on an lab/activity as a class. Classes will be taped for anyone unable to attend a class.

For those using the REAL Science Odyssey Chemistry 1 curriculum, these lessons will highlight, but not duplicate, labs and activities from the course. 1st – 4th grades recommended. Course materials will be staggered depending on the grade level, science acumen of the student.

* Lab materials will be inexpensive and easy to obtain.

The Periodic Table – Elementary Level Science Series Session 4

There are 3 meetings (1 per week for 3 weeks) covering a different topic in chemistry each week.

In these three weeks, there is a focus on using a scientific model to help with learning and understanding. Each week there will also be a fun lab where students investigate chemical properties. Students will be encouraged to research and share about an element of their choosing.

Week 1: The Elements

Each element has a unique number of protons and neutrons. These numbers give elements characteristic properties. Students will use scientific modeling to investigate and figure out the properties and name of a “mystery” elements based on the protons and neutrons they have. The lab looks at the common properties of transition metals.

Week 2: We Are Family

The rows in the periodic table are called families. Students will use scientific modeling to learn how the families are organized and use what they learned in week 1 to predict the difference in properties of 3 common elements from the same family. The lab investigates the differences in chemical behavior of these elements.

Week 3: Periodic Trends

Each column of the periodic table is called a period. Elements in the same period have some similar properties. Students will use what they know about a common element in a period to predict characteristics of less common elements. The lab looks at the common properties of two members in the same period.

The Periodic Table is one of the 4 sessions in the Elementary Level Science Series. The Elementary Level Science Series has 3 meets 3 times. Each 3-week session includes important, foundational science topics, scientific modeling, focused definitions of core science terms and phrases all in an engaging, high-interest format.

* Lab materials will be inexpensive and easy to obtain.

Materials List is on the Teachable website. All materials are inexpensive, easy to obtain, and in most cases you already will have them at home.

To interact in class: Live sessions will be best experienced with a camera and microphone. Parents will need a Zoom account (free).

Usually 2-3 hours per week of work, including class.

Students will gain an understanding of some important basic concepts in chemistry

Students will learn important on-topic vocabulary

Students will learn lab technique

Students will gain an understanding of the scientific method

Students will learn about the most important scientific model in all of chemistry, the Periodic Table & how it is structured

Families and learners are welcome to share any information about their individual learning preferences and needs and instructor will make accommodations that are helpful to the class.
