|Comprehensive Science III
|Unit of Instruction
|Science Process and Atomic Theory
Analyze the methods used to develop a scientific explanation as
seen in different fields of science.
Design and conduct a study using repeated trials and replication.
Understand that scientific investigations involve the collection of
relevant empirical evidence, the use of logical reasoning, and the
application of imagination in devising hypotheses, predictions,
explanations and models to make sense of the collected evidence.
Explore the scientific theory of atoms (also known as atomic
theory) by recognizing that atoms are the smallest unit of an
element and are composed of sub-atomic particles (electrons
surrounding a nucleus containing protons and neutrons).
Identify the benefits and limitations of the use of scientific
Explain why theories may be modified but are rarely discarded.
Assess how technology is essential to science for such purposes
as access to outer space and other remote locations, sample
collection, measurement, data collection and storage,
computation, and communication of information.
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
• discuss the VARIOUS methods used by scientists to answer questions or solve
problems (controlled experiments, observational studies, engineering by design,
trial and error, simulations, modeling, etc.)
- engage in a lab where students:
form a hypothesis
follow a procedure using repeated trials
collect data, take measurements, analyze and interpret graphs
draw a conclusion based on evidence
use phrases such as “results support” or “fail to support” their
hypothesis/claim (NOT PROVE OR DISPROVE) and how it leads to
further investigations (revise and repeat)
- recognize that atoms are the smallest unit of an element
- recognize that atoms are composed of subatomic particles:
- explain that theories may be modified based on new evidence, but are rarely
discarded (in the context of atomic theory)
