This Atoms & Molecules Unit Study introduces atoms and molecules with fun, hands-on lessons that are even scripted for easy use! The pdf comes with 10 lessons, 2 of which are fantastic card games! Here is the outline:

Lesson 1: Intro to Atoms

Lesson 2: Inside an Atom (Atomic Names, Subatomic Particles, Atomic Structure, and the Periodic Table)

Lesson 3: Intro to the Periodic Table (Atomic Names, Subatomic Particles, Atomic Structure, and the Periodic Table)

Lesson 4: Abundant Atoms Game (Periodic Table, elements, trends)

Lesson 5:Molecules (How Atoms Combine, Covalent Bonds)

Lesson 6: Molecules, How Atoms Combine,  Covalent Bonds

Lesson 7: Molecules, How Atoms Combine, Ionic Bonds

Lesson 8: Common Molecules & Compounds

Lesson 9: Mighty Molecules Game

Lesson 10: Atom Projects

These lessons are perfect for homeschoolers and can easily be adapted to classroom use!

Some lessons, especially the last one, may take more than one day. That is okay! Give your students enough time to complete the projects the best they can!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen. Examples of evidence could include adding air to expand a basketball, compressing air in a syringe, dissolving sugar in water, and evaporating salt water. Assessment does not include the atomic-scale mechanism of evaporation and condensation or defining the unseen particles.
Develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules and extended structures. Emphasis is on developing models of molecules that vary in complexity. Examples of simple molecules could include ammonia and methanol. Examples of extended structures could include sodium chloride or diamonds. Examples of molecular-level models could include drawings, 3D ball and stick structures, or computer representations showing different molecules with different types of atoms. Assessment does not include valence electrons and bonding energy, discussing the ionic nature of subunits of complex structures, or a complete depiction of all individual atoms in a complex molecule or extended structure.
