Lesson Topic (Standard/Anchor): S11.C.1.1.1
Student Objectives (Competencies/Outcomes):
Students will be able to: Explain the structure of
matter, its properties, and what happens when one
material comes in contact with another
 The student s will be able to calculate
measurements and calculations in chemistry
Stage I – Desired Results
Big Ideas: Everything around you is
concerned with chemistry and the
changes chemicals can undergo
Essential Questions: What is the
smallest unit of chemistry? What are
the classifications of chemistry?
Understanding Goals (Concepts): Everything
can be classified as matter, energy, or space
Vocabulary: law of definite proportions, law
of conservation of mass, law of multiple
proportions, electron, nucleus, proton,
neutron, atomic number, mass number,
isotope,orbital, electromagnetic spectrum,
ground state, excited state, quantum
number, Pauli exclusion principle, electron
configuration, aufbau principle, Hund's rule
Stage II – Assessment Evidence
Performance Task: Students will complete their notebooks with daily
Other Evidence: students will complete group projects, quizzes on
notes on the right side of the page and charts graphs and assignments on vocabulary, unit tests
