Chemistry Lab Methods

Scope & Sequence

  • Lab Safety 
  • The Nature of Science 
  • Atomic Models and Structures 
  • Periodic Table

Essential Learnings

  • Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms. 
    Construct and revise an explanation for the outcome of a simple chemical reaction based on the outermost electron states of atoms, trends in the periodic table, and knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties. (Patterns) 
  • Plan and conduct an investigation to gather evidence to compare the structure of substances at the bulk scale to infer the strength of electrical forces between particles. (Patterns) 
  • Develop a model based on evidence of Earth’s interior to describe the cycling of matter by thermal convection.
