Product Description
Differentiate this resource to meet your needs with the included editable task cards!

Wait- before you buy! This resource is included in the Chemistry Task Cards for a Year Bundle. Check it out!

You will find these atomic structure task cards to be a very versatile teaching tool. They can be used for practice with white boards, quizzes, partner or group work, or as an assignment in place of worksheets. Once they are cut out and laminated they will be a resource that can be used for years to come.

This packet includes twenty task cards with thirty questions. Questions include identifying the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons in neutral atoms, ions, and isotopes. There are also questions on calculating average atomic mass, and general concept questions. Don’t teach these concepts? No problem! There are editable task cards included so that you can replace a card or add questions of your own. Differentiate these cards to meet your needs. You may even want to make two sets of cards for two different classes. That’s what I do. I have a set for my standard class and another set for my honors & advanced honors classes.

Four sets of task cards are included, three with colorful backgrounds, and one for black and white printing. Also, you will find a set of edible cards (with color or B&W) that can be used to add cards to the set, or replace a card that you don’t want.

Work separately or with a partner to solve atomic structure problems
relate the mass, charge, and location of the three primary subatomic particles
identify the atomic number, mass number, number of protons, neutrons, and electrons for elements using information on the periodic table
represent a neutral atom using hyphen notation and the nuclear symbol
represent ions and isotopes using a nuclear symbol
calculate average atomic mass

These task cards are editable! So, if you don’t teach a particular question included, you can replace those cards.

Prior Knowledge for Students:
Students should be very familiar with using the periodic table to identify number of protons, neutrons and electrons, atomic number, mass number, and average atomic mass. Students should be familiar with ions and isotopes.

Teacher Prep Time:
Print, laminate, cut out, and go!
