As 9th graders, the students have all been introduced to the periodic table in varying degrees throughout their educational careers. The Lecture Notes in today's lesson will review the very basics of matter and periodic table to ensure that all students have the same strong foundation to build their understanding of Biochemistry. In addition to reviewing the composition of an atom and the design of the periodic table, students will start to visualize and predict trends in chemical reactions between the groups of elements.

Students will record their lecture notes on their own paper titled, Lecture Notes: Review of the Periodic Table. Samples of Student Work to demonstrate student note-taking strategies and recording of the curriculum as it is presented to the class.

Since this content is a review for most of the students from their 8th grade science class, an emphasis will be placed on expanding the students' understanding and use of the periodic table as a tool to guide their biochemistry experiences!  Shockingly, many students are required to memorize portions of the periodic table!  A more effective long-term strategy is to encourage students to learn how to use the periodic table as a tool and insist they repeatedly use these skills. By connecting the periodic table with the experiences in class, students are able to predict trends for the families of elements and hypothesize the types of bonds that will form due to the elements' positions on the periodic table.  

The periodic table is the strongest tool you can equip you students with as they embark on their adventure in the word of biochemistry!
