Introducing elements, and applying them to compounds and mixtures are vital lessons in chemistry.
This is why ChemistryNinja has made this fill-in-the-blank Elements, Compounds, and Mixtures lesson plan for science teachers. These notes are broken down by each substance, and and ends with molecular diagrams that differentiate between the three, while also encouraging students to draw their own molecular diagrams.
Breakdown of notes:
Elements: This section introduces the Periodic Table of the Elements, atomic number, mass number, subatomic particles, and isotopes. It also introduces the 7 diatomic elements.
Compounds: This section introduces compounds and how to read chemical formulas.
Mixtures: This section discusses the different types of mixtures, including separation techniques for each particular mixture.
