- This bundle includes my online unit and my printable unit for molecules and atoms. These units have different activities, but they address the same standards. This resource is for someone that needs both printable materials and Google app materials to teach about molecules and atoms. These two res$10.16$12.70Save $2.54
This unit on molecules, atoms, and compounds will have students make models and learning about the composition of atoms and molecules. Students will learn about the structure of atoms, the periodic table of elements, and the structure of compounds.
This resource is for NGSS MS MS-PS1-1 and Utah SEEd 6.2.1. Students will learn about the composition of atoms and molecules. They will create models of elements and also of simple molecules. Students will learn about the periodic table of elements.
This resource is set up for both distance learning. This resource is in Google Slides and students will need access to Google slides in order to use this unit.
This resource is aligned with NGSS MS-PS1-1. Develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules and extended structures.[Clarification Statement: 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 Boundary: Assessment does not include valence electrons and bonding energy, discussing the ionic nature of subunits of complex structures, or a complete description of all individual atoms in a complex molecule or extended structure is not required.] and
Utah SEEd Standard 6.2.1
Develop models to show that molecules are made of different kinds, , and of atoms. Emphasize understanding that there are differences between atoms and molecules and that certain combinations of atoms form specific molecules. Examples of simple molecules could include water (H2O), atmospheric oxygen (O2), and carbon dioxide (CO2). (PS1.A)
This resource is online in Google Classroom. If you are looking for something printable that addresses the same standards see Molecules and Atoms Making Models
Because this resource is in a Google Folder you will be asked to allow TPT to put a copy of this resource in your Google Drive. Some school districts do not allow access to Google resources. You will need to make sure this is something you can use in your school before purchasing it. You can add it to your personal google drive and access it from there. Students will need to be able to access Google slides in order to sue the interactives.
For the hands-on lab, students can use household items, toothpicks, small soft candies, or something else. They will be making models of both an element and molecules.
The resource includes informational text passages, comprehension questions, drag and drop activities, videos, and more.
