What educators are saying

This was a great way to finish up our Periodic Table unit. All my students with a wide range of abilities got to work together to create elements to hang in the room. Great resource!
I am a Middle School Science major and I am preparing tools for myself. I look forward to using this!

Your students will love coloring, cutting out, and assembling these 3D atomic models of all 118 chemical elements to make a beautiful and lasting display for your classroom. Each atomic model comes with it's own information tag including element symbol, properties and uses, atomic number, atomic mass, and much more. From this information tag students determine the number of protons, neutrons, electrons, and the electron configuration for each atomic model. A complete written assembly guide is included as well as an assembly video.

NEW … Advanced Template Masters are now included with missing element information for students to research and fill in. Either way, you and your students will love the stunning visual display you will have created with atomic models of all 118 chemical elements hanging from your classroom ceiling. The models will also serve to help students understand the structure of atoms and the relationship between atomic mass and the relative sizes of atoms.

If models in your classroom display should become lost or damaged during summer cleaning, next year’s students will be more than happy to replace them for you!

All templates can be printed on regular 8 1/2 by 11 paper but heavier card stock is highly recommended for a permanent display. Watch a short Video Preview
