Classroom Resources: Atomic Structure
1 – 7 of 7 Classroom Resources
History, Model of the Atom, Atomic Theory, Subatomic Particles, Electrons, Orbitals | High School, Middle School
In this activity, students will answer questions while watching a video about Niels Bohr and learn how he redefined thinking about the atom and the electron. His model of the atom advanced our understanding of subatomic particles and holds an important place in the history and development of atomic theory.
Emission Spectrum, Electromagnetic Spectrum, Emission Spectrum, Electrons | High School, Middle School
In this lesson students will investigate the fluorescence of a variety of everyday items as well as prepared samples under a black light. Students will examine the concepts of absorption and subsequent emission of photons, as well as wavelength, frequency, and energy of electromagnetic radiation. As extension activities, students will learn about phosphorescence and research real-life applications of photoluminescence.
Model of the Atom, Atomic Mass, Subatomic Particles, Electrons | High School, Middle School
In this project, students will become familiar with and have a workable understanding of atomic structure. The students will also create and construct a model of an atom.
History, Model of the Atom, Atomic Theory, Subatomic Particles, Electrons | High School, Middle School, Elementary 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 | High School, Middle School, Elementary 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.
Electricity, Interdisciplinary, Atoms, Culminating Project, Electrons, Electrons | Middle School, Elementary 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.
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.
