'Build an Atom' is a student centered atomic structure interactive activity. Works well as a T-TESS submission of evidence!
STAAR tested Category 1, Matter and Energy, and TEKS 6.5(A) and 8.5(A)(B)(C), this activity utilizes Group and Period numbers on the Periodic Table of Elements for students to determine the number of valence electrons and energy levels utilized by the atom model they will construct. Numbered and purposefully placed electrons also assist students with better comprehension, along with spiraling of element identification as a metal, metalloid or nonmetal.
