Chemistry and the Periodic Table: Teacher's Guide Levels A, B, and C. Preliminary Limited Edition.
Cambridge Physics Outlet, Woburn, MA. Education Programs Dept.
This is a two-part curriculum package for the teaching of chemistry and the periodic table. The first part, the Teacher's Guide, contains information necessary for using the equipment in a typical classroom including learning goals, vocabulary, math skills, and sample data for each activity. The second part of the package consists of photocopy masters for a set of student activity guides, a cut-and-paste quiz builder, and scoring rubrics for assessment of those activities. The photocopy masters are designed for copy and use in the classroom. Most of the experiments have two skill levels to accommodate students from a wide range of grades and abilities. Level A activities are intended to introduce the periodic table and enough key concepts for students to be able to read useful information off of it. The concept of valence is introduced but not explained. Using charts of the valences of the elements, students will make simple molecules and then learn how to balance chemical equations. Level B activities differ from Level A in the introduction of electron shells and the explanation of valence. The Activity Guides are written to provide a framework for encouraging students to observe and learn science process skills as well as content. (PVD)
