Product Description
Looking for a different way to practice writing electronic configurations?
Don't want to do just another worksheet?

Directions:
In this activity students take a piece of scrap paper and rip it up into 4 pieces. On each piece they write the name of a different element. They crumple up the pieces of paper into 4 "snowballs" and then, with an allotted time that you pick, have a "snowball fight" with their peers. After say 30 seconds or so, they have to pick up the snowballs one at a time and write their electron configurations.

You can make it a contest to get to 10 the quickest if you want.

My kids loved this, it was unexpected and really not that much chaos!


Clean up: I put the garbage can in the middle of the room and had them all shoot for it. Fun way to clean up too.
