Chemistry (Grade 7)

Chemistry (Grade 7)

All of our Pure Substances & Mixtures unit resources will be posted here and broken down into 3 subunits; Classifying matter, Solutions, and Separating Mixtures. We will also be learning about atoms and the periodic table of elements.

Lesson 1: Classifying Matter

1.1 – What is Matter?

  1. Read the section 1.1, noting the definitions of Chemistry and Matter
  2. Create a Google Doc, and answer questions #2 and 3 (Save this document to your Chemistry folder)

1.2 – More About Matter (After adding to your Chemistry folder, read and answer questions #1 -4)

  1. Read the section 1.2
  2. Answer questions #1 – 4 (Save this document to your Chemistry folder)

1.6 – Mechanical Mixtures and Solutions (Read and answer questions #1, 2, and 5)

Lesson 4: The Periodic Table of Elements

Some Key Concepts About Elements and their Atoms

  • Atoms are made of extremely tiny particles called protons, neutrons, and electrons.
  • Protons and neutrons are in the center of the atom, making up the nucleus.
  • Electrons surround the nucleus.
  • Protons have a positive charge.
  • Electrons have a negative charge.
  • The charge on the proton and electron are exactly the same size but opposite.
  • Neutrons have no charge.
  • Since opposite charges attract, protons and electrons attract each other.
