Turn chemical formulas into molecular models! Ideally for students who have already been introduced to atoms and elements, this activity guides students in drawing or building their own molecules. In this powerpoint, there are 10 different chemical formulas where students must identify the number of atoms, identify the number of elements, and draw a molecule of that compound correctly. The following concepts are covered in this activity.
This would be perfect with molecular model kits, but it can be done simply by drawing the molecules with colored pencils. Enjoy!
