Classroom Resources: Atomic Structure
26 – 28 of 28 Classroom Resources
Introduction, Elements, Periodic Table, Atoms, Model of the Atom, Electrons | High School, Middle School
In this activity, students will learn about what makes up an atom and how important protons are in the placement of elements on the periodic table.
Atoms, Model of the Atom, Isotopes, Atomic Theory, Atomic Mass, Subatomic Particles, Ions | Middle School, High School
In this simulation, students manipulate the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons in an element and determine how these effect the mass number, atomic number, and other properties of an atom.
Atoms, Model of the Atom, Atomic Theory, Emission Spectrum, Electromagnetic Spectrum, Subatomic Particles, Emission Spectrum, Electrons | High School
This activity is designed for students to build a scientific argument about the relationship between energy and spectral lines by exploring how light interacts with atoms. In the process, students will examine proposed models of the hydrogen atom and use collected data to analyze the proposed models. They will then select one of the models and write a scientific argument to support their choice. Students will then review additional data to support and/or refute their selection. Based on their analysis, students will revise their selected model and construct a new argument to support their revisions.
