For this lab students need to go around and identify the 20 different atoms found around the room on printed sheets which are provided for you. They will need to be sure to count the Protons, Neutrons and Electrons CAREFULLY because they will determine vital information about that specific atom.
We use this lab every year with our Intro to Chemistry classes as it helps them learn essential and basic vocab terms such as: Protons, Neutrons, Electrons, Atomic Number, Atomic Mass, Isotopes, Isotope Notation, Average Atomic Mass and Basic Atomic Structure.
This lab document provides you with everything you need besides a color printer to print it all out! :)
