Unit 7: The Atom and Periodic Table
Learning Targets Unit 7 Atomic Model research and The Periodic Table
7.01 I can describe the development of atomic theory, and the structure of the atom.
7.02 I can identify the ideas of Dalton, Thomson, Rutherford, Bohr, and the quantum model scientists and their contribution to atomic theory.
7.03 I can describe the structure of the atom including the relative locations, charge and mass of the subatomic particles.
7.04 I can use the atomic number and mass number to calculate the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons.
7.05 I can define an isotope and calculate average atomic mass.
The Periodic Table and Periodicity
7.06 I can relate the position of an element in the periodic table to its atomic number and atomic mass.
7.07 I can use the periodic table to identify metals, metalloids, and nonmetals.
7.08 I can identify alkali metals, alkaline earth metals, transition metals, halogens, and noble gases.
7.09 I can compare period and group trends of several properties. (see 7.11 for specific list of periodic trends)
7.10 I can recognize that elements in the same group have similar properties.
7.11 I can use the periodic table to compare elements in reference to atomic mass, ionization energy, electronegativity, reactivity, and the relative sizes of ions and atoms.
7.12 I can use the periodic table to determine the number of valence electrons.

The Periodic Table of Videos- Exactly as it sounds, short video clips of EACH ELEMENT on the periodic table. Most have demonstrations using the element. There are other videos that you may find interesting on the site if you explore a little bit. Another GREAT site.
Dynamic Periodic Table- a nice periodic table that allows you to do individual research on an element. One of the best and most interactive P.Tables I've seen on the internet.

Alkali Metal Reactivity Demonstration- Shows the increasing reactivity of the alkali metals (Group 1A) as you go down the group. Elements Li, Na, K, Rb, and Cs are shown.
