Product Description
This Atoms and Chemical Formulas Science Stations Set has 9 different stations on the parts of a chemical equation, chemical formulas, atom bonding, and the significance of valence electrons. It is intended for middle school, but could be easily adapted for high school.

Print-outs, station signs, directions, and teacher answer keys are provided. The only additional materials needed are: scissors, glue, tablets or computer access, textbook or similar resource for students to record definitions, and periodic tables for students to refer to.

You will also receive the "Opening the Door to Science Stations" document that contains 11 different signs for creating stations around your classroom along with ideas on how to begin using stations in your science classroom, the reasons why you should be doing stations, ways to implement stations, and some ideas for adding/creating your own stations.

Please click on the "PREVIEW" above to see additional images.

The stations included in this set are:

Sort It: Students will sort cards, matching each chemical formula with its corresponding visual representation. This station helps students SEE the meaning of coefficients and subscripts in a chemical formula. A corresponding (optional) foldable is included.

Media-Tech It (1): Students will watch a BrainPop video on Chemical Bonds and complete a corresponding quiz and activity. This requires a BrainPop subscription, but you could substitute any other related activity in this station.

Media-Tech It (2): Students will watch a StudyJams video on Elements and Compounds (free video) and complete a 7 question quiz at the end.

Read It: Reading passage on why atoms form bonds and the significance of valence electrons. After reading the short passage, students will answer a few questions on the provided reading guide.

Create It: Students cut out atomic puzzle pieces and assemble them to create various compounds. Each puzzle piece has valence electron information and only joins with other atoms in specific ways. After assembling the puzzles, students will record the chemical formula of each compound (including subscripts).

Draw It: Students will use a resource to record definitions, examples, and a related picture/image for provided vocabulary terms. The terms are: subscript, chemical formula, chemical reaction, chemical equation, products, reactants, coefficient, and Law of Conservation of Mass.

Analyze It: Students are provided with a list of 4 terms and they must decide which term in this list doesn't belong and why.

Write It: Students will complete "Using Chemical Formulas and Equations" worksheet. Three versions of this worksheet are provided.

Organize It: Students cut out 7 terms and glue each term onto the correct location of a chemical equation. The terms are: chemical equation, yields, chemical formula, reactants, products, subscript, coefficient
