Formation of Elements

To begin class, students were asked to share out a response to the question: where do the elements come from?  After a brief discussion, we watched the video below:

Next, we worked through the PowerPoint to learn more about the concepts of fusion and fission, and then students used the remainder of class to work on the Lesson 16 Worksheet.  This is the final textbook lesson of Chapter 3.  On Monday, we will continue our exploration of nuclear reactions with a Gizmo activity in preparation for the Chapter 3 test next Wednesday.
