NAME: Katrina Roxas


Lesson Title: Intro to Polymers

Grade level: 8th

Total Time: 50 minutes

# Students: 12
Learning Goal:
(Content
Standard/Common
Core)

PS1-4: Develop a model that predicts and describes


changes in particle motion, temperature, and state of
a pure substance when thermal energy is added or
removed.
PS1-5: 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.

Target Goal or Skill:

Objective(s):
Assessment
(Criteria / Look Fors/
Performance Tasks)

Student will be able to deepen their understanding of monomers,


polymers, and cross-linked polymers.
How do polymers affect us in our everyday lives?
What is a polymer? What is a monomer? What is a cross-linked
polymer? How are they related?
My goal is for the students to learn what a polymer, monomer, and
cross-linked polymer are. They can explain how our previous lab
relates to these.

2:35- Students wait outside of classroom to wait for last class to


exit and wait for expectations. They will receive their Do Now
activity in the form of a packet. Their Do Now is to answer these
questions: What does monomer mean? What about
polymer? How do you know?

Learning Activities:
2:45pm- Student-led discussion of Do Now. Transition into review

Learning Activities:

of activities from last week.


2:50pm- Review previous lab and troubles/praises had for it. How
did that reaction occur? Why did it occur? Have students open their
books to Activity 21 called Polymer Parts.
2:55pm- Students will partner up and read the activity aloud (at a
volume of 2). If they come across a bolded word, they must write it
down with a definition.

Closure:
3:15pm- Partners will group together with one other group and
discuss the reading. They will write down the important concepts
from the reading.
3:25pm- Students will share out their main concepts.
3:30pm- Students are dismissed.
Closure: T/F question
Language Demands:

Function: Explaining
Vocabulary: polymer, monomer, cross-linked polymer
Syntax: Organized via sentences in notes of notebook
Discourse: Interaction between teacher and other students (spoken)

5 Questions (Blooms or
DOK)

What can be done to minimize talking?


How would you apply what you learned to develop your skills?
How would you describe the slime we created last week?
Can you list the three vocabulary words and give the correct
definitions?
What differences exist between polymers and cross-linked
polymers?
