Blog Post #2 Matter and change

These past few weeks my host teacher taught the unit about “ Matter and change”. The big ideas of these unit are :

  1. How is matter characterized?
  2. How the law of conservation of energy applies to changes of matter?
  3. How do different properties provide evidence of the identity of materials?

The learning goals for this unit are aligned with  Alaska Standards:

B1:The student demonstrates an understanding of the structure and properties of matter by

[11] SB1.1 predicting the properties of an element (i.e.,reactivity, metal, non-metal) using the periodic table and verifying the predictions through experimentation.
Students need to have a basic understanding of the evidence and the reason behind how we know matter is made of discrete particles. Teachers should explain to students how we know atoms exist.
