CHEMICAL EATING

Class: 9

Subject: Chemistry

Teacher Name:

Objectives & Outcomes

The students will be able to identify the elements used in various food products based on the ingredients listed on the labels.  Using various resources the students will be able to indicate the positive or negative benefits and/or side effects of the elements when consumed.

Materials Needed

  • Internet access or other resources
  • PowerPoint program access, or supplies needed to create display boards for a class presentation

Prepare ahead of time:  As many different food labels as possible from a variety of products, the longer the ingredient list the better; a sample label with ingredients to display and a listing of a few of the elements used in a couple of the ingredients

Procedure

Opening to Lesson

  • The teacher will display the name of a common element from the periodic table which is also found in many food products
  • Ask students: How many of you have consumed this element?
  • Accept the responses from students
  • Reveal the food product and where it is found
  • Ask students if they were aware of the many elements or chemicals found in the food they eat

Body of Lesson

Modeling

  • Display the sample food label highlighting some of the ingredients
  • Ask students how many of the ingredients they are familiar with and which ones they may have never seen or heard of before today
  • Discuss the responses
  • Identify some of the elements in the ingredients
  • List the positive benefits and/or negative side effects of consuming the element/chemical

Guided Practice

  • Distribute 3-5 food labels to each student (If possible give at least one each for a “healthy” food product, junk food product, and a liquid food product)
  • Explain the assignment to students: Using the food labels the students will research each of the ingredients using resources found on the Internet
  • The students will list each of the elements for each product, as well as the chemical formulas if possible
  • Direct students to research the positive benefits and/or the negative side effects of each ingredient as well
  • Encourage students not to overlook common ingredients which they assume will be healthy, or unhealthy.
  • Remind students to find facts about each product, not myths
  • Once completed with the research direct students to prepare a presentation for the class
  • Explain to students the expectations (or rubrics) for the presentation
  • Assign the students time slots to present the information to the class
  • On day three or later, each student will present their research to the class and respond to their peers’ questions.
  • Use the assessment or rubric page to evaluate the presentations
  • Continue until all students have had a chance to present the information

Independent Practice

  • Create a test or quiz related to the Periodic Table of Elements

Closing

Have a class discussion about the safety or concerns with some of the elements/chemicals researched?  Discuss healthy alternatives or other topics related to “natural” foods.  Discuss additives.

Assessment & Evaluation

Assessment page used during presentations, multiple-choice quiz/test to evaluate students’ knowledge of the period table.

Modification & Differentiation

Allow students to work in pairs or larger groups.  No class presentation, all written work turned in for evaluation.  Use of more or fewer ingredient labels.  Have students provide the food labels for the research.  Limit the number of presentations.

LESSON PLAN 02

COST OF RECYCLING

Class: 9

Subject: Chemistry

 

Teacher Name:

Objectives & Outcomes

The students will be able to trace a single recyclable product from manufacturer to the recycling center, identifying each step, its real cost, environmental cost, and other aspects of the product.

Materials Needed

Internet access or other resources, one recyclable product for each pair of students, display board and materials for class presentation (graphs, charts, etc.)

Prepare ahead of time:  If possible, enough recyclable products to give one to each pair of students in the class (not absolutely necessary, but having the item makes it more real)(Aluminum can, plastic bottle, cardboard, newspaper, other paper, old cell phone, other metals, rubber, Styrofoam, etc.); rubrics to follow for presentations

Procedure

Opening to Lesson

  • Display each recyclable product for students to see
  • Ask students: How many of you use these products each day or week?
  • Allow responses and discussion.
  • Ask them how often they recycle the product, separating it from other trash, etc.

Body of Lesson

Modeling

  • Ask students: Do you think it makes a difference to recycle?
  • Allow for responses and discussion
  • Ask students how they can find out the value of recycling
  • Encourage students to also think about the value of recycling for the environment
  • Allow for responses and a short discussion

Guided Practice

  • Pair students
  • Distribute one product to each pair of students
  • Explain the assignment: The students will trace the item from manufacturer to the recycling center, identifying the cost involved along its path.
  • Remind students to not only look at financial cost, but also the effect on the environment and other variables
  • Have students use the Internet or other resources for researching the product
  • Encourage students to use different terms for Goggling or for using other search engines (For example, simply typing in “aluminum can” may not be sufficient, instead use “What is the cost of making (or recycling) an aluminum can?”.)
  • Once research is completed, students are to create charts, graphs, or displays for use in a presentation to the class.
  • Remind students they are to refer to the rubrics or assignment sheet making sure they answered all of the questions
  • Plan times for presentations
  • Following each presentation, discussion may follow

 Independent Practice

  • For homework, ask students to do a home search to discover how many items in their home are recyclable and to make a list of them. If unsure, if it is recyclable, they will do an Internet search by simply asking:  “Are old “pillows” recyclable? Or other items.

Closing

Have students come up with alternative uses for recyclable products.  For example, taking old soda cans and creating a wall or other structure by joining them together, old boxes turned into furniture or shelving.  Use a class period building things out of recyclables.

Assessment & Evaluation

Assess the presentations based on pre-determined rubrics

Modification & Differentiation

Students may work alone/larger group.  Same product for entire class.  Half the class gets one product, other half a second product.  Do not give the product.  Have students choose which product to use.  Reports instead of class presentations or Power Point displays.  Fieldtrip to a recycling center and/or a manufacturer of products.  Assign one-half of the class to identify costs of manufacturing, other half researches the cost of recycling.

Introduction:  History of the periodic table and atomic theory.
Development:  Students create a Example: Newlands, used his knowledge of music to find a pattern in the early elements … he called the pattern “an octave.” No one took him seriously at first. He needed to persevere despite criticism, he showed respect to others, showed patience in his chemical experiments as he tested his theory; he was ethical and showed integrity not to doctor the work to his benefit. There were many things he could not explain; yet, he knew he had something.
Practice:  As we discuss additional scientist, the class is expected to contributed character traits that would be applicable.
Accommodations:  none
Checking For Understanding:  During review, stopping and asking students to remind me of scientist’s contribution to science and the character traits he possessed.
