Empower your students to direct their own learning with this complete, interactive eLearning lesson on the structure and properties of Atoms. The new responsive design allows students to view the content on any device from desktop or notebook computers to tablets and mobile phones! The lesson includes reading passages combined with engaging video, images, and diagrams to help visual learners. Best of all are the frequent and engaging Interactive Learning Checks that provide students with immediate feedback as to whether they are understanding the concepts. But that’s not all … hands-on projects and activities along with an infographic activity provide the perfect blend of technology with traditional learning. To top it all off, the lesson concludes with a randomly generated, interactive assessment that is automatically scored to provide students and teachers with immediate feedback!

This INSTANT lesson is ready for your students in seconds; simply give them the link and password provided upon purchase so they can get started immediately. Then you can relax because you just bought yourself some time to set up the hands-on activities and to print out the infographic pages.

See for yourself … try a quick online demo (on whatever device you happen to be using). This demo is a watermarked version of the actual eLesson so you have the opportunity to see exactly what you would be purchasing. The demo runs in your browser so there is nothing to download.

PhET Build an Atom - guided lesson for the online PhET Build an Atom simulation.

Atom Infographic - assemble and complete a 3 page infographic based on the concepts from the lesson.

Atom Builder Templates - build stunning 3D atom models for the first 10 elements with complete instructions.

All Interactive eLessons are menu driven lessons that allow students to visit and revisit any part of the lesson as needed. Students have full control to navigate to any part of the lesson including the final assessment. Each lesson uses the following format:

INTRODUCTION - Provides an overview of the concepts in the lesson.

TAKE A CLOSER LOOK - This is where most of the lesson’s content is found.

EXPLORE - Hands-on labs or other activities that directly relate to the concepts in the lesson. Lab sheets can be downloaded for printing from within the lesson!

INVESTIGATE - Students assemble infographic pages to complete using the lesson as a resource. The completed infographic serves as a graphic representation of what was learned and can make a great addition to a student’s interactive notebook.

ELABORATE - Students expand their understanding of a key concept of the lesson. This topic focuses on further research, hands-on projects and / or lab activities. All handouts and directions can be dowloaded from within the lesson!

COMMUNICATE- Communication of ideas is a critical skill for students to develop. This topic provides students with options for choosing the method they will use to communicate what they have learned.

CHECK YOUR LEARNING - After completing the lesson and activities, it’s time for a quiz! The lesson includes a randomly generated, 10 question assessment that is automatically scored to provide immediate feedback.

Your purchase includes all handouts; lab and activity sheets, instructions, infographic pages, and answer keys. You will also receive the complete HTML5 lesson packaged for uploading to your LMS (Blackboard, Moodle, Schoology, etc.) or secure website if you choose to do so.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Develop models to illustrate the changes in the composition of the nucleus of the atom and the energy released during the processes of fission, fusion, and radioactive decay. Emphasis is on simple qualitative models, such as pictures or diagrams, and on the scale of energy released in nuclear processes relative to other kinds of transformations. Assessment does not include quantitative calculation of energy released. Assessment is limited to alpha, beta, and gamma radioactive decays.
Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms. Examples of properties that could be predicted from patterns could include reactivity of metals, types of bonds formed, numbers of bonds formed, and reactions with oxygen. Assessment is limited to main group elements. Assessment does not include quantitative understanding of ionization energy beyond relative trends.
