Science - Chemistry
Standard 1 Objective 1
1 class periods of 90 minutes each
Students use various articles about how atoms are made and spread throughout the universe starting with the Big Bang. They will study the articles as groups and will then present their information to the class.
One 85 minute period. The time can be varied depending on how much time the students are given to prepare their presentations.
None, this is an introduction. Each group might need help with vocabulary or parts of the articles.
Students receive five points for contributing to the whiteboard. The other five points comes from the actual presentation to the class. To make sure everyone participates in the groups, I tell them in the beginning of class that they do not know who will present to the class. I randomly assign numbers to each group and I draw the numbers just before they present. The students that understand explain to the others because they want to get a good grade and the others don't want to let their peers down.
