In this Physical Science Classroom activity, students discover the rules for filling electron orbital diagrams. Being student-led, the activity ensures better memory retention and greater engagement.
Students are provided with small paper squares representing electron orbitals, and a set of pennies representing electrons. Their task is to use a set of clues to learn how to place the pennies in the correct squares, and therefore to arrive at the basic rules of electron configuration.
