  • Elements are substances that are made of only one type of atom! THEY ARE PURE SUBSTANCES…the ingredients for all other substances on Earth!
reading the periodic table
Reading the periodic table
  • Period – Row across the periodic table

(tells you how many electron shells there are, basically the atoms in each row are the same size)

reading the periodic table1
Reading the periodic table -
  • Group – Column going down the periodic table

(The elements in each group share similar characteristics or properties)

reading the periodic table2
Reading the periodic table -
  • Group – Column going down the periodic table

(The group # can also tell you how many valence electrons there are…but there is a trick)

kingdoms of the periodic table
“Kingdoms” of the Periodic Table
  • Metal – Left side of the periodic table
    • Broken in to two regions:
      • Reactive metals
        • Group 1 – Alkali
        • Group 2 – Alkaline
      • Nonreactive metals
        • Groups 3-12 are the

  • Reactants = Products



but what if it doesn t
But What If It Doesn’t?
  • If you weigh your elements before a chemical reaction, and the compounds afterwards and they do not have the same mass before and after what likely happened during the chemical reaction?
let s practice
Let’s Practice

CH4 + O2 CO2 + H2O

physical change
Physical Change
  • A physical change takes place without the element’s chemical structure changing.
    • Dissolving
    • Phase change (solid, liquid, gas)
    • Changing shape
chemical change
Chemical Change
  • Production of a new substance
  • Cannot be reversed
element compound or mixture
Element, Compound or Mixture?
  • How can you tell if something is an element, a compound or a mixture?
  • What types of mixtures are there?
  • Must be on the Periodic Table OF ELEMENTS to be and element!
  • Made when two or more elements combine during a chemical reaction
  • Examples:
      • Water
      • Salt
      • Sugar
  • Chemical Change
  • Combines 2 or more substances without producing a chemical reaction
  • NOT the same throughout - heterogeneous
  • Can be separated easily
  • Examples:
      • Soil
      • Fruit salad
  • Physical Change
  • A type of MIXTURE that IS the same throughout

- homogenous

  • Solute- substance being dissolved
  • Solvent- substance doing the dissolving
  • Examples:
      • Salt water
      • Lemonade
  • Physical Change

Salt = Solute

Water= Solvent

Salt Water= Solution

warm up2
  • Update your Table of Contents for today…
  • We will continue with the Hydrosphere! I would get your book out so you can put the info in your book as we go!
constructed response
Constructed Response
  • The constructed response is really an example for the 6th or 7th grade science summative, but since renewable and non-renewable resources are on your social studies vocab list & were also science topics we are going to practice one more time!
  • When water changes from a liquid to a gas (water vapor)

What makes the

water evaporate?

  • When water changes from a gas (water vapor) to a liquid

Give me an

example of


  • When water falls from clouds

What are forms

of precipitation?

run off accumulation
  • When water moves from one location to another (run-off)
  • and gathers there (accumulation)

What else can the

water do?

  • Water vapor coming from trees and plants
  • Water soaking down into the ground through the soil
properties of water
Properties of Water

How do they relate to each other?

polarity explains a lot
Polarity explains a lot!

Oxygen = negative

Hydrogen = positive

Water is attracted to itself and other things like a magnet!!

  • Because water is polar, it sticks to itself!!
  • Again, because water is polar it sticks to OTHER things too!!
density you already know this
Density…you already know this!
  • Water is less dense as a solid than a liquid…that’s why ice cubes float!

Water’s ability to push back on objects allow them to float! (Has to do with surface area)

specific heat
Specific Heat
  • Water has a really high specific heat
  • It takes a long time for water to heat up or cool down
universal solvent
Universal Solvent
  • Water can dissolve more substances than anything else!
water quality indicators
Water Quality Indicators

How do they affect each other?

    • Definition: How hot or cold the water is due to kinetic energy
  • Healthy:The water is the right temperature to support the things that live in it.
    • Unhealthy:The temperature is too high (970F) or too low (320F) and will hurt or kill things that live in it.
t urbidity

Definition: A measure of how cloudy water is due to “stuff” in it.

Healthy: Clear, clean water = 1 NTU

Unhealthy: Sediment or pollution that makes the water cloudy = 5 NTU

  • Definition: The acid content of

the water

  • Healthy: Has to be the correct

level for the type of water.

Most Freshwater: 6.0 8.0

  • Unhealthy: Is not the right level for

the type of water or to support life.

dissolved oxygen
Dissolved Oxygen

Definition: oxygen gas dissolved in the water

Healthy: Right amount dissolved oxygen = lots of life 4-5 ppm is optimal

Unhealthy:Low dissolved oxygen = little or no life

  • Definition: Something that is usually good, but can become toxic when there is too much
  • Healthy: The right amount of nitrates, phosphates,
    • sunlight = lots of life
  • Unhealthy: Too many or not enough nutrients = little or no life
    • nitrates = above 1 ppm
    • phosphates = above .003 ppm

EUTROPHICATION FLOW CHARTExcess Nutrients  Algae Bloom (pond scum)  darkness belowsurface  photosynthesis stops decomposers & other organismsuse up oxygen DEATH

bio indicators

Definition: Macro-invertebrates that live in the water and are sensitive to pollution

Healthy: A lot of bio-indicators = healthy water

Unhealthy: Little or no bio-indicators = unhealthy water

game changers
“Game Changers”


Natural element that has increased to toxic levels due to industry

Usually affects people through eating fish from mercury contaminated water

Causes kidney damage & brain/neurological disorders

game changers1
“Game changers”


commonly found in water, soil and vegetation

usually harmless but can indicate the presence of other harmful forms of coliform bacteria

(fecal matter & E. Coli)

step 1 coagulation
Step 1. Coagulation
  • Coagulation:The process at which chemicals are added so that dirt and other particles stick together into “floc”(Flocculation) so they can easily be removed…the “stick & scoop” step
step 2 sedimentation
Step 2. Sedimentation
  • Sedimentation:The heavy particles settle to the bottom and the clear water moves on
step 3 filtration
Step 3. Filtration
  • Filtration: The water passes through filters made of different materials
step 4 disinfection
Step 4. Disinfection
  • Disinfection:A small amount of chemicals are added to kill bacteria(usually chlorine)
step 5 storage
Step 5. Storage
  • Storage:Water is stored in a closed tank to be used by the community
ocean zones
Ocean Zones

What types of life forms live in each zone?


Intertidal zone

Neritic zone

Oceanic zone

ocean organisms
Ocean Organisms
  • Benthos = bottom dwellers; all organisms that live on the ocean floor
  • Nekton = free swimmers; all organisms that can swim freely through the ocean

4 characteristics of living things
4 Characteristics of Living Things
  • Organized Structure (cells & their organelles - DNA/genetic code)
  • Grow and Develop (change over time = evolution; repair cells; make new cells)
  • Respond to Environment (adapts)
  • Reproduction (one of many metabolic or cellular processes)
cells cells they re made of organelles
Cells, Cells, they’re made of organelles…
  • Nucleus – controls the cell; stores DNA
  • Cell Membrane – allows things to enter & leave the cell
  • Vacuole – stores materials the cell needs
  • Lysosome – breaks materials down
  • Mitochondria – makes energy
  • Cytoplasm – holds organelles in place
  • Endoplasmic Reticulum – packages materials needed to make protein
  • Ribosomes– makes proteins
  • Golgi Bodies – sends proteins where they are needed in the body
cellular processes sterngrr
Cellular Processes: STERNGRR
  • Synthesis – building necessary nutrients (photosynthesis would fit here)
  • Transport – movement within or in and out of the cell
  • Excretion – breaking down or getting rid of wastes
  • Regulation – maintaining balance within the body
  • Nutrition – how an organism obtains food
  • Growth – making new cells or repairing
  • Respiration – making usable energy (cellular respiration would fit here)
  • Reproduction – producing offspring
  • Plant cells use energy from the sun, carbon dioxide and water to make food
cellular respiration
Cellular Respiration
  • Animal Cells then use the oxygen and sugars to “breathe” and make energy (ATP)
pathogens cause disease
Pathogens Cause Disease
  • We will focused on 4 Types of Pathogens:
    • Fungi
    • Bacteria
    • Viruses
    • Parasites
  • Non-Photosynthetic organisms
  • Most fungi are multicellularheterotrophs
  • Fungi grow in almost every habitat imaginable, as long as there is some type of organic matter present and the environment is not too extreme
  • Living organisms
  • Unicellular, prokaryotic
  • Larger than viruses, but usually more treatable
  • Antibiotics used to treat
  • NOT LIVING – Needs a host to survive and reproduce
  • Since it is not alive, it has NO CELLS
  • Very small
  • Vaccines used to treat
  • Living organisms that need a host to survive – highly adapted to their host
  • Unicellular or multicellular
  • Come in many shapes and sizes
  • In a food chain or food web, which direction do the arrows go?
geological biological evolution
Geological & Biological Evolution

Biological evolution is driven by the changes in Earth…living things evolve in response to changes in their environment. This process is known as Natural Selection or “Survival of the Fittest.”

There are 4 principles of Natural Selection:

  • Overproduction
  • Variation
  • Adaptation
  • Selection
evidence of evolution
Evidence of Evolution

When Charles Darwin, “The Father of Evolution,” first proposed the idea that ALL species descend from aCOMMON ANCESTORhe needed evidence to support his claim. The major pieces of evidence can be broken into…

  • Fossils
  • Embryology
  • Comparative Anatomy (homologous, analogous, vestigial)
  • Molecular Biology (DNA, genetics)
summarizing evolution
Summarizing Evolution:
  • Genes mutate causing variations
  • Those with the best variations are selected to survive & reproduce becoming adaptations
  • This causes the population of that species to evolve or change over time becoming better suited to survive in its specific habitat
