  1. 1. UNIT TEMPLATE<br /><ul><li>Unit AuthorFirst and Last NameVERAQUE, Fely Insel Marie P.School DistrictNorth DistrictSchool NameCebu Normal UniversitySchool City, StateCebu CityUnit OverviewUnit TitleMatterUnit SummaryThe simplest definition of matter is that it is anything that has weight or fills space. Matter is all the things we can see and feel in the world. Rocks, giraffes, water, and cars all consist of matter, whether they are living or non-living. Air is also matter. Though it is invisible, its effects can be felt, as when the wind blows. And with careful measurements, its weight can be calculated. Matter is often broken down into three categories: solid, liquid, and gaseous. For biologists, such a basic description of matter often suffices. But as long ago as ancient Greece, scientists theorized about what matter is comprised of. And in terms of modern-day physics and chemistry, our understanding of matter has grown quite complex.Subject Area Science and Technology: ChemistryGrade Level3rd Year High SchoolApproximate Time Needed5-Day Meeting, 3 classroom and 2 laboratory meetingsUnit FoundationTargeted Content Standards and Benchmarks (BEC COMPETENCIES)1. Demonstrate skill in identifying chemical systems and classification of matterDifferentiate between homogenous and heterogeneous systems1.2 Name and give examples of pure substances and mixtures1.3 Enumerate and describe three (3) types of mixtures1.4 Operationally differentiate between elements and compounds1.5 Classify elements as metals or non-metals based on their properties1.6 Detect compounds whether acids, bases and salts, using indicators1.7 Group compounds into organic and inorganic substances using formulas2. Appreciate understanding of elements and compounds present in daily life2.1 Cite elements and compounds which are basic to our daily existence like building components of teeth and bones; food preparations and medicines2.2 Identify elements and compounds used in industries which are vital to the national economy3. Demonstrate simple techniques in preparing, separating and purifying matter3.1 Discuss different methods of separating mixtures3.2 Prepare useful mixtures from easily available resources in the community3.3 Separate the components of a mixture3.4 Recover useful chemicals/materials as a result of the separation of mixturesStudent Objectives/Learning OutcomesAt the end of the unit, the students with 70% accuracy are expected to:Describe the different states of matterDistinguish between physical and chemical propertiesExplain the changes in matterDistinguish between solutions from pure substancesDistinguish a compound from an elementDistinguish between heterogeneous and homogeneous matterDemonstrate four distinct ways to separate chemical mixtures: filtration, crystallization, distillation, and sublimation Cite the relevance of Matter in our environment, community and to humansCurriculum-Framing QuestionsEssential QuestionWhy Matter exist?Unit QuestionsWhat are the States, Changes, Properties, and Classifications of Matter?Content QuestionsHow does Matter influence our existence in the world? In our daily life?Assessment PlanAssessment TimelineBefore project work beginsStudents work on projects and completes the tasksAfter project work is completed1st Day: ClassroomThe teacher will introduce the lesson using multimedia and a Power Point Presentation.2nd Day: LaboratoryStudents will submit their assignment to the teacher.The teacher will ask a student to give a review of the previous lesson.3rd Day: ClassroomThe teacher will return the evaluated group and individual worksheets on the previous lesson.4th Day: LaboratoryThe teacher will demonstrate simple techniques in preparing, separating and purifying matter.5th Day: ClassroomThe teacher will prepare the unit test to be given to the students.The teacher will give additional instructions before handling the test paper.The students will be grouped into teams and have a buzz section. A class discussion follows the reports to reinforce the ideas presented.Scope: States of Matter, Changes and its PropertiesThe teacher will design a laboratory experiment to the class (Please view the constructed lesson plan for this session).Scope: Phases of MatterThe teacher will direct the student reporters to stay in front and make the necessary motivation of the class.The students will deliver the report in a creative presentation.Using rubrics prepared by the teacher, the team reporting/output will be evaluated by the teacher and the students.The students are grouped according to teams to perform on a laboratory experiment.Students will take the unit test on Matter.The teacher will instruct the students to write a research paper on Bose-Einstein Condensate to be submitted next meeting.After the activity, the teacher will assign the each team a topic for reporting to be presented on the 3rd Day (Pls. see the format for the report presentation). Team 1: Elements Team 2: Compounds Team 3: Homogeneous Mixture Team 4: Heterogeneous MixtureThe teacher will summarize the main ideas of the reports.After the laboratory experiment, the students will write a reaction paper.The teacher will remind the student of the post exam to be given on the 5th Day.The students will be dismissed after the unit test. No assignment will be given.Assessment SummaryAfter the unit discussion, the students are expected to comply the following learning outcomes: 1. Research Paper 2. Group output presentation 3. Individual graded expository essay 4. Creative Presentation/Reporting 5. Reaction Paper 6. Summative Evaluation: Unit TestAssessment Rubrics1. Research Paper2. Group output presentation and Individual graded expository essay: Pls. see Lesson plan’s Evaluation section3. Creative presentation/reporting: Pls. see the provided rubrics of the activity4. Reaction Paper5 Unit Test: Answer KeyUnit DetailsPrerequisite SkillsIntegrated ScienceInstructional ProceduresLesson Plan (teacher)Laboratory worksheets (students)Accommodations for Differentiated InstructionSpecial Needs StudentsUse of PowerPoint presentation on Matter to encourage and motivate students. Individual and group assistance is encouraged to promote better understanding on the topic. Working in pairs to record observations helps students understand the concept of states of matter. Participating in a demonstration facilitates the understanding of an abstract concept.Nonnative SpeakersThe students are encouraged to speak on their native language in asking questions for elaboration during discussion and laboratory experiments. Speak out the vocabulary word while demonstrating the movement helps students make authentic connections.Gifted/Talented StudentsGroup and individual projects and reporting are administered to motivate and develop student’s creativity and critical thinking. Advanced learners can analyze the periodic table, and classify the elements as solids or gases.Materials and Resources Required For UnitTechnology – Hardware Applications to be usedMS WordMS Power PointWindows Media PlayerInstructional MaterialsPrinted Materials: textbook, workbookVisual Instructional Media: video clips, digital pictures, storyboards (for the Multimedia Presentation), chartsIndoor/Outdoor Media: laptop/computer desktop, LCDOthers: Laboratory apparatuses, materials needed for the experimentReferencesI.
