Description

Note-taking worksheets for introducing middle school students to elements and the Bohr atomic model for the first 18 elements.


Use printed or as a TpT Digital Activity

Introduce:

  • Elements are made in stars!
  • Most common elements in the universe, in the earth's crust, and in living things.
  • Making models of atoms using the Bohr's model.
  • Using the periodic table to find protons, neutrons and electrons.
  • Electrons have energy and occur within different energy levels/shells around the nucleus.

Develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules and extended structures. Emphasis is on developing models of molecules that vary in complexity. Examples of simple molecules could include ammonia and methanol. Examples of extended structures could include sodium chloride or diamonds. Examples of molecular-level models could include drawings, 3D ball and stick structures, or computer representations showing different molecules with different types of atoms. Assessment does not include valence electrons and bonding energy, discussing the ionic nature of subunits of complex structures, or a complete depiction of all individual atoms in a complex molecule or extended structure.
Integrate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text with a version of that information expressed visually (e.g., in a flowchart, diagram, model, graph, or table).
Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 6–8 texts and topics.
