After the last unit, most of my students said that they liked starting out the unit by getting their own time to work on vocabulary, so we are doing that again for this unit. We have spent time on DiscoveryEducation.com using the "interactive glossary" in order to get a definition and picture for each of the words. These notes should be in their science notebooks if you'd like to check them out. With the exception of my first period (we had technical difficulties on Monday), all students should have COMPLETED this work today. If they did not, they need to complete the words on their own time.
Vocabulary: atom, thermal energy, boiling point, freezing point, element, physical property, melting point, matter, pure substance, compound, heterogeneous, homogeneous, mixture, solution, solute, solvent, colloid, atomic mass, atomic number, periodic table, molecule
**This is NOT a definitive list. We WILL continue to add words to this list as we progress through this unit.**
For some of our projects this year, I will be asking for parent volunteers. If you already know that you would like to volunteer in the future, please contact me. Otherwise, the need for parent volunteers will be included in the weekly update. Thank you! :)
