Science Unit 1: Chemical Reactivity

So this unit has been Chemistry. We have looked at atoms, molecules, compounds, the periodic table, law of conservation of mass, and much more. This has been my first chemistry unit and I have really enjoyed the experience, with a few wacky experiments. I actually found this quite interesting and I have learnt a lot from this journey and would like to go a bit more in depth with some of the topics we have covered:

The Atom:

  • Protons, Neutrons and Electrons
  • Compounds and Molecules
  • Ions and Isotopes
  • Ionic and Covalent Bonds
  • Different Types of reactions

Periodic Table:

  • Groups and Families
  • Atomic Number, Mass Number, Elements, Symbols
  • Most to least reactive on the table
  • Alkali Metals, Alkaline Earth Metals, Halogens, Noble Gases, Transition metals
In conclusion, I have very much enjoyed this unit and would definitely like to learn more and continue.
