This is a card sort that is also a cut and paste activity. I spent 10 minutes on direct instruction and cornell notes, show a video then pass out this activity. Students cut out the 16 images and place them in the correct column under atom, element, molecule or compound.
Use of interactive notebook:
I have my students complete notes on the right (input) side and complete the cut and paste card sort on the left (output) side. This activity worksheet fits in composition books.
