Today we'll start class by going over the packet from yesterday. Just to make sure that we have a strong understanding of the patterns and trends we are beginning to see emerge in the way the periodic table is organized. Afterwards we'll do another "Brain Dump" in our models. We want to write down what we've learned from the last two units and what we've been working on in this one. Concepts like: Big Bang, Nucleosynthesis, Plate Tectonics, Continental Drift, Subduction, Effusive/Explosive eruptions, viscosity, and the structure and beginning vocab of our chemistry unit.
Today we are going to practice what we learned last week with a packet, found below and on the calendar tab. Work your way through the packet and we'll go over it tomorrow.
Yesterday we went over types of eruptions and what causes eruption styles to be different. We went over the definition atoms and elements and even matter. Today we had to go a little deeper. I have taken pictures of all the notes from 5th period and they will be below. I will also clean them up and put them in PowerPoint, which will go on the Extra Resources tab and I'm hoping to record a lecture for it this weekend for you.
PERIODS 3 AND 6: we will be updating out notebooks and beginning to talk about how chemistry relates to volcanic eruptions.
Period 4: Yesterday we defined atoms, matter, elements but we didn't get to our discussion on atomic structure. We'll begin breaking down the atom today.
