Students will learn about elements, atoms, and the Periodic table through the phenomena - How do you know if your water is safe to drink? What kind of substances in water might be hazardous? First, student will learn atoms are made up of subatomic particles, which give rise to predictable properties through a phet simulation. Next, students will try to build their own table looking for patterns in element cards. Students will then look at properties of elements which are divided into metals and nonmetals. Student will then look at electron configuration through a POGIl activity. Students will also complete a flame test activity. Finally, students when end the unit with a engineering project examining water quality to determine if it is safe to drink.
