What educators are saying

This foldable is so well organized, loved it! Bonus for having the digital option for some of my students with a computer accomadation.
This resource was a great way to review atomic structure with my 8th graders. Students enjoyed completing and placing these notes in the science notebooks. It was well aligned to the TEKS.


Want an engaging way to share atomic structure with your students? This interactive foldable notes page uses rich images, coloring and labeling to allow students to identify the subatomic particles. This can be used virtually or face-to-face. It also helps them build connections to the content, as they explore the role and significance of each particle.

There are multiple versions of the foldable included in the download; one is more interactive and allows students to color the subatomic particles/concepts to match with the name of that particle/concept and draw arrows to each. This is the most interactive version of the foldable. A second version allows students to color code the particles/concepts, but the arrows are already present for them. The third version is suitable for color printing, and the colors and arrows are already present. This version would be best for someone with limited time. You can choose the appropriate level for your classroom and your students.

Big idea: All matter is made up of atoms, and in order to understand how the world around us works, it is important to understand subatomic particles and how they interact to give all matter its properties. For example, atoms bonding together to form important compounds like water or carbon dioxide happen because of these subatomic particles.

Core Disciplinary Ideas

This interactive notes page builds a foundation for the following core disciplinary idea:

• PS1.A: Structure and Properties of Matter

o Substances are made from different types of atoms, which combine with one another in various ways. Atoms form molecules that range in size from two to thousands of atoms. (MS-PS1-1)

Crosscutting Concepts: Patterns, Scale, Proportion, and Quantity, Systems and System Models, Energy and Matter

Scientific and Engineering Practices: Developing and using models, constructing explanations (for science), obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information

Science Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)

8.3B – TSIET use models to represent aspects of the natural world such as an atom, a molecule, space, or a geologic feature;

8.5A – TSIET describe the structure of atoms, including the masses, electrical charges, and locations, of protons and neutrons in the nucleus and electrons in the electron cloud;

8.5B – TSIET identify that protons determine an element's identity and valence electrons determine its chemical properties, including reactivity;
