Transcript of Zooming Into Matter

TED-Ed
Just How Small Is An Atom?
Relates scale, composition and density of atoms to everyday objects.
Primacy/Recency
Do Now
to get the ideas rolling
Prime-Time-1:
discuss their ideas from the Pennies assignment (10-12 min)
Down-Time-1:
Gallery walk to check out classmates' sketches of atoms (3-5 minutes)
Prime-Time-2:
Scale of Universe activity (20 min)
Down-Time-2:
Pair-share BIG IDEA (1 min)
Closure:
Atoms are very, very small.
Sense & Meaning
The idea that atoms are tiny is abstract (They are too small to easily view)
Start big, zoom in.
Everything is made of atoms.
Connect to earlier learning about Phases of Matter (solid, liquid, gas)
Brain: Limbic System
Thalamus
Sorting incoming sensory info
Hippocampus
Connects to past learning
Zooming Into Matter

45 Minutes
Do Now related to day's lesson
The "hook"
PrimeTime
DownTime
EVERYTHING
IS
MADE
OF
ATOMS!!!!
Interactive website, zoomable and clickable for further exploration.
Shows scale from largest to smallest objects in the universe.
Audience
8th Grade Physical Science Students
Goals & Objectives
Atoms, which make up all matter, are very, very SMALL.
Our idea of the atom has changed over time as technology has improved.
Outcomes
SWBAT connect scientific concepts of the atom to an understanding of matter's behavior in all its forms.
Assessment Techniques
Formative Assessment & Gallery Walk
Simulations (Atomic Carnival)
Lab Exploration
Traditional Quiz
Students draw their idea of a penny's atom (based on what they already know).
Then the drawings are hung around the room, and classmate's vote on the "best" one using circle stickers.

Atomic Carnival
Students participate and compete in carnival-themed games that are representative of some of the different models and experiments in the development of atomic theory.
Atomic Theory
(lecture, diagrams, timeline)
Learning Styles
Multiple Intelligences
Technology
Brain: Neurons
Brain: Sensory Input
Brain: Cerebral Lobes
Highlights important discoveries over time as our technology has improved and we learn more about the atom.
Atomic Theory
Theory Notes-
appeals to Concrete Sequential (CS) learners

Atomic Carnival-
engages Abstract Random (AR) learners

Linguistic-
Atomic Theory ("story" over time)
Logical-
connecting Carnival activities to their model
Visual-
create own sketch of atom, evaluate sketches of others, TED-Ed and Scale of Universe visuals
Kinesthetic-
moving/doing/competing in Carnival games
Interpersonal-
working in groups at carnival stations to complete activities and connect learning to what they know
Existential-
how tiny atoms are, how tiny we are, why are we this way?
New information, old information
Creating meaning
Triggering multiple senses
stimulate visual & aural centers
manipulatives
Frontal Lobe
Pennies Formative
Temporal Lobe
Video
Past learning
Occipital Lobe
Video
Carnival Games
Parietal Lobe
Games

Motor Cortex
