Classroom Resources: Atomic Structure
1 – 9 of 9 Classroom Resources
Atomic Spectra, Model of the Atom, Isotopes, Atomic Theory, Subatomic Particles, Emission Spectrum, Electrons, Orbitals , Ions | High School
The AACT high school classroom resource library has everything you need to put together a unit plan for your classroom: lessons, activities, labs, projects, videos, simulations, and animations. We constructed a unit plan using AACT resources that is designed to teach Atomic Structure to your students.
Periodic Table, Model of the Atom, Valence Electrons, Subatomic Particles, Electrons, Ions | Middle School, High School
In this lesson, students will use different candies to represent electrons, protons, and neutrons to gain a better understanding of atoms, ions, and isotopes.
Chemical Change, Acid & Base Theories, Strong vs Weak, Mixture, Salts, Ions, Conductivity | Middle School
In this lesson, students will test different flavors of Gatorade and other liquids to investigate acids and bases. This will take several days unless students already know about acids and bases.
Polyatomic Ions, Review, Ions | High School
In this activity, students will learn common ions by creating notecards and quizzing each other.
Review, Model of the Atom, Isotopes, Balancing Equations, Atomic Mass, Subatomic Particles, Lewis Dot Diagrams, Electrons, Ions | Middle School, High School
In this activity students collaborate to complete tic-tac-toe review questions to prepare for a test on the atomic structure unit. The idea behind the activity is to give students choice and you can read more about the inspiration for the activity in the May issue of Chemistry Solutions.
Atomic Spectra, Activity Series, Emission Spectrum, Electromagnetic Spectrum, Emission Spectrum, Ions | High School
In this lab, students will investigate the colors produced when several mixtures of metallic ions are placed in a flame.
Naming Compounds, Ionic Bonding, Intramolecular Forces, Ions | High School
In this activity, students will construct ionic compounds by balancing the charges on cations and anions.
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.
Naming Compounds, Molecular Formula, Precipitate, Ionic Bonding, Ions | Middle School
In this activity, students are assigned an ion and form bonds with their classmates, recording the formula and name of the compound they created.
