Question Exploration Routine is an instructional methods that teachers can use to help a diverse student population understand a body of content information by carefully answering a critical question to arrive at a main idea answer. Students taught using the question exploration routine earned higher total test scores than did students taught using the lecture-discussion method. This product includes the completed question exploration guide, and the student guide blank except for the vocabulary and scaffolding questions already filled in.
This question exploration asks: How are elements in colloid mixtures different from molecules in a compound?
It covers the following Florida Next Generation Sunshine State Standard Benchmarks: SWBAT
SC.8.P.8.5 - Recognize that there are a finite number of elements and that their atoms combine in a multitude of ways to produce compounds that make up all of the living and nonliving things that we encounter.
SC.8.P.8.7 - Explore the scientific theory of atoms (also known as atomic theory) by recognizing that atoms are the smallest unit of an element and are composed of subatomic particles (electrons surrounding a nucleus containing protons and neutrons).
SC.8.P.8.8 - Identify basic examples of and compare and classify the properties of compounds, including acids, bases, and salts.
SC.8.P.8.9 - Distinguish among mixtures (including solutions) and pure substances.
SC.912.P.8.3 Explore the scientific theory of atoms (also known as atomic theory) by describing changes in the atomic model over time and why those changes were necessitated by experimental evidence.
SC.912.P.8.4 Explore the scientific theory of atoms (also known as atomic theory) by describing the structure of atoms in terms of protons, neutrons and electrons, and differentiate among these particles in terms of their mass, electrical charges and locations within the atom.
