Classroom Resources: Atomic Structure
1 – 5 of 5 Classroom Resources
Electricity, Electrons | Elementary School
In this lab, students will learn about closed and open circuits. Students will use holiday lights, a battery, and foil to make a closed circuit.
History, Model of the Atom, Atomic Theory, Subatomic Particles, Electrons | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
This video tells the story of Niels Bohr, a great scientist who redefined how we think about atoms and the electron. Bohr’s model of the atom helped to advance understanding of subatomic particles, and holds an important place in the history and development of the atomic theory.
Periodic Table, Model of the Atom, Subatomic Particles, Atomic Radius, Ionic Radius, Electrons | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
In this animation, students will have an opportunity to visualize atomic and ionic radii. They will look at the different sizes of atoms in the third period and the atoms in the sixth group. They will also look at an atom and its cation as well as an atom and its anion. **This video has no audio**
Introduction, Elements, History, Periodic Table, Atoms, Subatomic Particles, Electrons | Middle School, Elementary School, High School
In this activity, students will use their creativity to spell their name (first or middle name and their last name) using chemical symbols of elements on the periodic table. For example, you can spell Yvonne using the symbols for yttrium (Y), vanadium (V), oxygen (O), nitrogen (N), and neon (Ne).
Electricity, Interdisciplinary, Atoms, Culminating Project, Electrons, Electrons | Elementary School, Middle School
In this activity, students will learn that the flow of electrons within a closed circuit make our lives easier. Students will construct a circuit quiz box that lights up when the correct question and answer are chosen.
