A comprehensive 86-slide PowerPoint that introduces all major topics in a typical middle school / early high school unit on atoms and the periodic table. PPT topics include: atomic model, atomic math, isotopes, history and development of the periodic table, and groups of hte periodic table.

NOTE: PPT Completely Updated!

This PPT has been completely reviewed and updated from the previous version. Each slide has been examined, edited, and improved in both appearance and content. New slides have been added to increase content level, enhance the visual look, and improve continuity. I have also added a new 2-page summary notes document that matches the content and order of the PPT. I hope you enjoy the upgrades!

PPT Contents:

Part 1 - The Atomic Model

  • Atomic model timeline
  • Democritus (atoms)
  • Aristotle (a wrong turn!)
  • John Dalton (atomic theory)
  • J.J. Thomson (electrons)
  • Ernest Rutherford (protons, nucleus)
  • James Chadwick (neutrons)
  • Neils Bohr (planetary model)
  • Werner Heisenberg (quantum model)
  • Modern atomic model (electron cloud)

Part 2 - The Periodic Table

  • How the periodic table is organized
  • Element name
  • Element symbol
  • Atomic number (p, e)
  • Atomic mass number (p + n)
  • Calculating atomic number and atomic mass number

Part 3 - Isotopes

  • Review: atomic number and what it means
  • Average atomic mass
  • Isotopes
  • Most common isotope based on average atomic mass

Part 4 - History of the Periodic Table

  • State of chemistry before the periodic table
  • Who was Dmitri Mendeleev?
  • Development of Mendeleev's early periodic table
  • Value of Mendeleev's table in discovery of gallium and other elements
  • Henry Mosely and his reorganization of the periodic table by atomic number

Part 5 - Groups of the Periodic Table

  • Overview of the periodic table
  • Periods (rows) and Groups (columns)
  • Metals, nonmetals and metalloids - properties and general location on the table
  • Similarities between elements in same group
  • Group 1: Alkali metals (properties and examples)
