This unit aligns with the Common Core State Standards:
STANDARD 5 - Matter and Energy
"The competent science teacher understands the nature and properties of energy in its various forms, and the processes by which energy is exchanged and/or transformed.
5A. understands the atomic and nuclear structure of matter and the relationship to chemical and physical properties
5C. understands the cause and effect of chemical reactions in natural and manufactured systems
5E. analyzes the properties of materials in relation to their chemical or physical structures and evaluate uses of the materials based on their properties
5F. explains conservation of mass and energy and explains interactions of energy with matter, including changes in state"
Unit VI “Chemical Reactions” folder contains four comprehensive PowerPoint lessons; many review programs with two printable color PDF worksheets; four student PPT supporting note guides; a unit vocabulary sheet; quizzes, and unit/chapter assessments (all multiple choice, matching, true/false questions) with answer keys in mostly PDF format.
PowerPoint lessons contain many graphics and at least two links to short videos for each lesson to further student understanding.
PowerPoint slides also contain notes for the instructor based on students most "frequently asked questions" or FAQ's to help clarify the subject. A class activity is included at the end of each PowerPoint lesson along with a link to an interactive 20-question review/quiz on kahoot.it.
ActivInspire programs/worksheets can also be used for an interactive review of the material covered in the unit.
