This fun atoms worksheet is a great review or wrap up for your unit covering subatomic particles (protons, neutrons, and electrons) parts of an atom.
If you haven’t introduced this topic yet, you and your students may enjoy my full atoms and atomic structure lesson that includes a PowerPoint, foldable, and guided notes. You can check it out by clicking the link below.

In this lesson you get two versions of an atomic structure worksheet (one with QR codes and one without), and two QR code based video activities perfect for homework or interactive notebooks. You also get free downloads of the fonts used to create the lesson! All fonts used are 100% rights cleared and you can use them in any lessons you create (both personal and lessons you plan to sell)!
This atoms, parts of an atom, and atomic structure lesson was created for upper elementary and middle school or junior high students and is a great homework, unit wrap up, or test review activity.
This lesson is complete and ready to teach today! All you need to do is make photocopies! Would work perfectly for a sub if desired!
This middle grades lesson covers common core concepts as well as Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. Highly engaging, high level thinking activities make this lesson great as a fun review for your unit test, standardized testing, or just a fun activity that includes QR codes and incorporates drawing. QR code activities are a perfect addition to your interactive notebooks.
Concepts covered include the parts of an atom, subatomic particles, protons, electrons, and neutrons. Lesson is approximately one to two class periods in length if you do the worksheet and the QR code activities. As a point of reference I teach a 50 minute class and generally complete this activity in two days. If you’re pressed for time this lesson can be completed in one class period.

Common Core Standards addressed in this lesson:
Follow precisely a multistep procedure when carrying out experiments, taking measurements, or performing technical tasks.
This standard is met when students follow instructions to complete definitions, examples, and create original artwork covering similarities and differences between two common elements.
Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 6-8 texts and topics.
This standard is met when students define key terms and further define them with original artwork.
Integrate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text with a version of that information expressed visually (e.g., in a flowchart, diagram, model, graph, or table).
This standard is met when students draw diagrams and compare and contrast two atoms.
For my fellow Texans:
This lab addresses the following Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for science
(B) use models to represent aspects of the natural world such as an atom, a molecule, space, or a geologic feature;
This standard is met when students complete diagrams of atoms and compare and contrast those atoms.
(5) Matter and energy. The student knows that matter is composed of atoms and has chemical and physical properties. The student is expected to:
(A) describe the structure of atoms, including the masses, electrical charges, and locations, of protons and neutrons in the nucleus and electrons in the electron cloud;
This standard is met when students analyze an atom and determine the number, electrical charge, and placement of that atom’s subatomic particles.
