Using QR codes in science part 1 introduces a BYOD (bring your own device) strategy in the study of the particulate nature of matter. In this activities learners use their mobile devices to scan QR codes watch a videos and complete the assigned tasks. The activities can be completed as an individual or group assignment depending on the available devices and the class dynamics.
The product comes with four tasks; vocabulary activity, states of matter, classification of matter, physical and chemical changes and the periodic table. Learners will research, read, create graphic organizers, answer questions, and for extension design a diagram. All tasks involve technology integration.
Answers and suggested responses is included
S8P1. Students will examine the scientific view of the nature of matter.
a. Distinguish between atoms and molecules.
b. Describe the difference between pure substances (elements and compounds) and mixtures.
c. Describe the movement of particles in solids, liquids, gases, and plasmas states.
d. Distinguish between physical and chemical properties of matter as physical (i.e., density, melting point, boiling point) or chemical (i.e., reactivity, combustibility).
e. Distinguish between changes in matter as physical (i.e., physical change) or chemical (development of a gas, formation of precipitate, and change in color).
f. Recognize that there are more than 100 elements and some have similar properties as shown on the Periodic Table of Elements.
