PS1.A: Structure and Properties of Matter PS1.B Chemical reactions. The Science Behind Super Heroes, Activity packet 14 pages, worksheets and fun activities, printable.
Thank you for purchasing this resource “The Science Behind Super Heroes”. This activity is aimed at getting your students to understand the periodic table and the properties of elements in order to create a super hero. They will also look at basic chemical reactions and the formation of compounds. This is a fun project, your kids will really enjoy it!
This unit will cover the following NGSS Standards:
MS-PS1-1. Develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules and extended structures
PS1.A: Structure and Properties of Matter
Substances are made from different types of atoms, which combine with one another in various ways. Atoms form molecules that range in size from two to thousands of atoms. (MS-PS1-1)
Each pure substance has characteristic physical and chemical properties (for any bulk quantity under given conditions) that can be used to identify it. (MS-PS1-2),(MS-PS1-3)
PS1.B: Chemical Reactions
Substances react chemically in characteristic ways. In a chemical process, the atoms that make up the original substances are regrouped into different molecules, and these new substances have different properties from those of the reactants. (MS-PS1-2),(MS-PS1-3),(MS-PS1-5)
The total number of each type of atom is conserved, and thus the mass does not change. (MS-PS1-5) Some chemical reactions release energy, others store energy. (MS-PS1-6).
This resource is fully printable, it includes information, activities, keyword glossary, answer keys, rubrics and teacher notes. You should be able to complete this project within a week, there are also opportunities for homework. I have included some editable worksheets as you may wish to go into a little more depth depending on your students, so you are free to customize these pages to meet the requirements of your class.
