Students will be constructing a flip book to use as their “notes” for the introductory information in Atomic Structure. The content in the flip book covers what an atom is, the subatomic particles within it, important vocabulary, and using the Periodic Table in Atomic Structure.
Lab: Paperclip Element, Compound, and Molecule Lab
This lab uses the wonderful paperclip as a way to represent elements! In this lab, students must determine four things at each station: (1) The CHEMICAL FORMULA that represents the paperclip combination. (2) Whether the paperclip combination is an Element, an Element that is also a Molecule, or a Compound/Molecule. (3) The number of elements that make up the paperclip combination. (4) The number of atoms that make up the paperclip combination.
