7th Grade Science

Unit Title:  Chemistry 

Objectives:

1. Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after thr substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred. 

2. Develop and use a model to describe how the total number of atoms does not change in a chemical reaction and thus mass is conserved. 

3. Undertake a design project to construct, test, and modify a device that either release or absorbs thermal energy by chemical processes. 

4.  Explain basic atomic structure-protons, electrons, neutrons. 

5. Interpret and use the periodic table.
