Homework/Follow up: Materials needed Students will complete the

Quizlet for homework.
Students will complete a Quizlet on Quizlet code
identifying substances as Acids and Bases to
review from the material learned that day.

The unit will be followed up the following

day with finishing the demos and expanding
on the football field foldable more.

Adaptations for special needs Materials needed

Several students in this class may need

assistance in the making of the foldable and
labeling. Focusing on those students and
keeping them on track will be necessary.

For students with no internet connection-

they can take home a print out of the
assignment and complete it for HW.
