Product Description
This activity engages students through drawing or building atoms. Students will classify elements as they explore subatomic particles.

Important Information
This activity can be used to introduce or review subatomic particles and atomic structure. For review, turn it into a game by having students race to complete the atom.

Tip: To achieve optimal quality and allow for more room, print on 11X17 Ledger paper; however it will also print on 8 ½ X 11 Letter.

What’s Included
This activity includes a Bohr Atom Model template, Element Cards, and Instructions

How it Works
Teacher will print out materials- Bohr Model Atom Template(s) for each student and Element cards deck one per student/group.
• Recommended: Laminate the Atom Template and allow students to use dry-erase markers to complete activity.
• For even more engagement, use candy as your subatomic particles instead of drawing.
