Students first complete a Lab that helps them understand the concept of Isotopes by using samples of different size candies. The Lab paper has notes for the teacher on how to set this up.
After the Lab, students practice calculating with Isotopes.
Students will need a Periodic Table to complete this worksheet.
Students are given the names of isotopes (with their mass). They must then fill in the following information: Atomic Number, # of Protons, # of Neutrons, # of Electrons.
I have included a Powerpoint presentation that will help you show students how to properly fill in the Isotope Worksheet. I have also included an Answer Key to the Lab and Worksheet.
The Lab and Worksheet are provided as Microsoft Word and PDF documents. The Answer key is a PDF document.
