A comprehensive 86-slide PowerPoint product (with 2 pages of student notes) that introduces all major topics in a typical middle school / early high school chemistry unit on atoms, elements and the periodic table. Topics include: what are atoms, development of the atomic model, atomic number, atomic mass, isotopes, Dmitri Mendeleev, periodic table trends, and major groups of the periodic table.

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 Moseley 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
  • Similarities between elements in same group
  • Group 1: Alkali metals (properties and examples)
  • Group 2: Alkaline earth metals (properties and examples)
  • Groups 3-12: Transition metals (properties and examples)
  • Group 17: Halogens(properties and examples)
  • Group 18: Nobel gases (properties and examples)

Includes Summary Notes Document:

  • This PPT also includes a 2-page summary notes document
  • Summary notes are fill-in-the-blank questions directly tied to each section and in order
  • The summary notes comes in 2 formats: a static PDF document and fully-editable WORD document

PPT Downloadable in 2 Formats:

  • This product comes in 2 formats: a static PDF document and fully-editable PPTX document

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
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.
