Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm Lesson

Student Readiness
The students have a prior knowledge about elements and atoms from the
Chemistry lessons in the grade school.
Learning Preferences:
Grade 8 students are diverse learners. Some of them are visual, auditory
and kinesthetic learners.
Content Standard
The learners demonstrate an understanding of the concept of atomic

Performance Standard
The learner should be able to:
Solve problems to determine the number of protons, neutrons and
electrons of an atom.
Topic & Sub-topics
Atomic Structure

Parts of an atom

History of atoms

Different models of the atom

Calculation of the protons, neutrons and electrons of an atom

Learning Competencies
The learners should be able to:
Identify and describe the structure of atoms.
Explain the different models of the atom.
Determine the number of protons, neutrons and electrons of a
particular atom.

Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm Lesson
At the end of the lesson, the students shall be able to:
Name and characterize the parts of an atom.
Explain the different models of the atom.
Solve problems involving in determining the number of protons,
neutrons and electrons in an atom.
Establish an understanding of the significance of learning and
studying the atomic structure.
Before we formally start our discussion, let us have first an activity. The
activity is entitled People Search. What you have to do is to find a
classmate who can answer one of the questions on this piece of paper and
have him/her to sign it. However, you cannot ask the same classmate for
another question, you should find another classmate to answer it. You are
given 10 minutes to finish asking the five questions on the piece of paper.
First three to finish are given plus points for the seatwork later.
Now that you have gathered answers to the questions. Let us now talk
about the answers youve got. Can anybody share what you have found
out regarding to the question number one? (And so on). As you can see, I
am just taking jotting down your answers to the questions, I will not answer
it yet because I want us to answer it together as we go on to our discussion
that is why I want you to hold on to this worksheet for we will revisit it later
and confirm if the answers we had gathered are correct.
Development of the Lesson
1. Do an activity to serve as an introduction of the topic and also to help
the teacher gauge where the students are now and to identify
2. After the activity, discuss the questions and take down notes of the
answers of the students.
3. Formally introduce the topic by making a connection of the previous
topic and the present topic.
4. An advance assignment is given to the students wherein they are
grouped and then assigned to a specific model of an atom to which
they are to research and present in the class before the discussion
about the different models of an atom.
4. Give the lesson proper using a PowerPoint presentation.
5. In the lesson, in the calculation part of the protons, neutrons and
electrons, some problems are presented which are to be solved.
6. After the discussion, a seatwork will be conducted.
7. Make the students summarize what has been discussed.
8. Make the students reflect. This will serve as the closure.
9. Quiz
The students will answer the following questions in a size 4 sheet of paper:
Two things that they have learned from this lesson.
One question that they still have in their mind about the topic.

Science G8

Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm Lesson

One aspect/part of the class/session that they have enjoyed.

1. Are atoms divisible or indivisible? Yes or No? Why?

1. Do small things in our life matter/important? Why?
2. What values/attitudes shown by the scientists in the development of
the atom, that should we apply?
Internal Action
Appreciate the importance of learning atoms and its parts.

External Action
To apply the concept of the atomic structure in life.


Seat Work
Different problems will be given. Some problems will be used for checking
and recording.
A twenty (20) items quiz will be given.
