This is a fun lab for high school students that are studying atoms. During this activity, students will rotate to lab stations and determine the atom that is being represented by the candies in a bag. This lab activity includes:*Teacher Directions*Student Lab Sheet*Lab Key*Sample ProblemSupplies nee
How is the atomic mass of an element determined when the element has several isotopes? In this lab students will carry out experiments and perform the necessary calculations to determine the atomic mass of the fictitious element “vegium.” The element “vegium” has three isotopes called beanium, peai
About SNAPs Lab Stations ActivitiesSNAPs Lab Stations Activities require students to use science, math, literacy, problem-solving and engineering skills. They are designed to enhance students' understanding of scientific concepts and help students apply scientific ideas to the real world. Each stati
Teach your students about atoms, ions, and isotopes using this great, detailed digital lab. Extremely useful in a unit where physical labs are often difficult to find.This digital lab uses PhET simulators to guide students through the following topics:What are atoms and how are they structured? What
Do you need a DIGITAL assignment that will give your students practice identifying atoms as ions, isotopes, both, or stable atoms? This product gives you links so you can make a copy of a GOOGLE SLIDES presentation, a GOOGLE DOC student handout, and a GOOGLE DOC ANSWER key! As a bonus, I've also i
This fully editable Lab Station on Atomic Theory, Atomic Structure and Isotopes is meant to get your students out of their seats and engaged in the content. Each station not only offers a unique opportunity to test your students knowledge (offer an opinion, answer questions based on a video or readi
Within this lab, students will be able to get a hands on experience with understanding Isotopes. Students will weigh out a variety of Oreo's. Even though they are the same element 'Oreo' They have different weights. The different weights occur because they are using different versions of Oreo's; Ore
This 2-page isotope lab activity is designed as a short exercise that helps students gain experience with calculating average mass, percent abundance and average atomic mass using plain and peanut M&Ms to represent an element named "candium" with 2 naturally-occurring isotopes.To perform the act
How do isotopes differ from one another? In this virtual lab, students will look at the stable and unstable isotopes of certain elements from the Periodic Table and their abundance in nature. Students will also:⚗️ Test their pre-existing knowledge Atomic Structure⚗️ Make connections between Isotope Va
**This lab could be used in a Virtual, Hybrid or In Class Teaching Model***For this lab students need to go around and identify the 20 different atoms found around the room on printed sheets which are provided for you. They will need to be sure to count the Protons, Neutrons and Electrons CAREFULLY
This 2-page isotope lab activity designed to be a short exercise that helps students gain experience with calculating percent abundance and average atomic mass using 3 different sizes of beans (lima, pinto or navy, and black eyed peas) to represent an element named "beanium" with 3 naturally-occurri
This is a simple lab that teaches students what isotopes are. Students use balances or scales and 3 different varieties of M&M's (any three varieties will work) to identify differences in isotopes. The lab is followed by 10 questions about atoms and isotopes. This lab is fun effective way to tea
It is always a fun lab to get a bunch of skittles or M&M's and calculate the average atomic mass of the "isotopes," but sometimes it is just not feasible to get enough candy for all of your class periods. With this lab, the necessary data is already provided, and students can perform all of the
Great for virtual learning or social distancing. This is an accompanying worksheet for an online PhEt simulator for learning about isotopes and atomic mass. Perfect for introducing chemistry or biochemistry to middle or high school biology. Includes a key. Created in Google Docs but can easily be co
This is a great lab to illustrate the 3 different isotopes of Hydrogen. Students love making them and eating them (if allowed). I use small pretzel sticks and 3 different colored small marshmallows to simulate protons, electrons and neutrons. A good visual for isotopes.
This in-person lab is for learning about isotopes and atomic mass. Great for introducing biochemistry or chemistry to middle or high school biology students. Additional materials (M&Ms) are required. Created in Google Docs but easily converted to Word or PDF.
Teach your students about isotopes and atomic mass with this great, detailed lab! The only thing you need is a balance and three different types of beans! In this lab, students will learn to calculate the atomic mass of elements based on the percentage of each isotope. This lab deals with the follow
This lab goes with the Unit 3-Electrons in Atoms.
In this lab students will be tasked with determining the average atomic mass for the element "Candium" from a sampling of its isotopes. Students will be using a sample of mixed candy to separate into its "isotopes," mass, and perform calculations o
Four page lab that using candy -MMs to teach the concept of isotopes and atomic mass. Could be modified for middle school level.
1. Obtain a sample of candium that contains three different brands of candy. Treat each brand of candy as an isotope of candium.
2. On a piece of paper tow
Students will determine the average weights of isotopes, determine the relative abundances of isotopes, and calculate from experimental data the atomic mass of the newly discovered element, Vegium.
Materials needed are:
Triple Beam Balance (or similar weighing device)
Students first complete a Lab that helps them understand the concept of Isotopes by using samples of different size candies. The Lab paper has notes for the teacher on how to set this up.
After the Lab, students practice calculating with Isotopes.
Students will need a Periodic Table to complete t
Rainbow Isotopes Lab
Students will explore isotopes and calculating average atomic mass with this consumable lab.
Students work in pairs to calculate the average atomic mass of their rainbow isotope. The lab is intended to be used with Skittles or M&Ms but can easily work with marbles or even
COINIUM: A Science Math Activity
The coinium lab is a great lab to do in a chemistry, physical science, or math class. In science classes this activity helps to demonstrate the concept of isotopes and calculating weighted averages. In math class this is a great activity for a real-world application
