Reflection: Real World Applications The Periodic Table: What Does It All Mean? - Section 3: Independent Practice - Identifying The Elements


The video reflection below discusses the need to reassess your "review" lessons.  I approached today's lesson with the idea that my students had already learned this content and needed a quick review before we moved into using the periodic table to predict chemical compounds and identify trends in the elements.  

To my surprise, my students needed a little more TLC in this area so we slowed down started at Step 1 and were able to persevere and end with a successful lesson where students were able to complete their "Using The Periodic Table" practice activity with a high level of accuracy in their responses.

The Periodic Table: What Does It All Mean?

Unit 4: How It All Happens: An Introduction To Biochemistry
Lesson 2 of 11

Objective: SWBAT use the periodic table to determine atomic composition and predict trends in chemical reactions between groups.

Big Idea: The elements on the periodic table are the building blocks of Biochemistry. Today we start laying the foundation of our understanding of how these elements cause chemical reactions that enable us to live!
