This comprehensive Middle School Science packet on Atoms and Molecules is designed to align with the NGSS Middle School MS-PS1-1 standard. A visually interactive 60 slide powerpoint covers the main concepts in the standard "develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules and extended structures". The structure of atoms and molecules is covered as well as extended repeating structures such as NaCl and graphene. Over 40 pages of student activities, questions and notes complete and compliment this engaging resource.
Structure of the Atom
Molecules (same, different atoms)
Elements and Compounds
Repeating Subunits - Carbon, NaCl
Solids, Liquids, Gases
Change on State - Increase in Energy
Change of State - Decrease in Energy
2 Science Reading Articles and the Atomic Timeline and Mendeleev (these make excellent sub plans)
Atoms and Molecules Activities including Make a Molecule/Draw a Molecule
Changes of State Comics which are perfect for an INB.
Note: some parts of this packet are taken from Matter, Elements, Compounds, Mixtures Interactive Notebook
