Description

Do you need to teach your students about molecules, atoms, and the Periodic Table of Elements? Students will learn about the structure of molecules and atoms and will make models of them. Students will learn about atoms, elements, molecules, and compounds. They will learn about the Periodic Table of Elements. Students will make a variety of models of molecules.

This resource on Molecules and Atoms includes:

  • an informative slide show on molecules and The Periodic Table of Elements
  • molecule worksheets
  • interactive notebook flaps
  • a hands-on activity in which students make models using easy-to-find materials such as toothpicks and marshmallows.
  • a quiz
  • answer keys

This resource is a printable unit meant to be used in face-to-face instruction. If you are looking for an online Google Unit on the same standards and topic please see Atoms, Molecules and Compounds Distance Learning NGSS MS-PS1-1, Utah SEEd 6.2.1

This resource is aligned with NGSS MS-PS1-1. Develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules and extended structures.[Clarification Statement: 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 Boundary: Assessment does not include valence electrons and bonding energy, discussing the ionic nature of subunits of complex structures, or a complete description of all individual atoms in a complex molecule or extended structure is not required.] and

Utah SEEd Standard 6.2.1

Develop models to show that molecules are made of different kinds, proportions, and quantities of atoms. Emphasize understanding that there are differences between atoms and molecules and that certain combinations of atoms form specific molecules. Examples of simple molecules could include water (H2O), atmospheric oxygen (O2), and carbon dioxide (CO2). (PS1.A)

Utah SEEd 8.1.1 Develop a model to describe the scale and proportion of atoms and molecules. Emphasize developing atomic models of elements and their numbers of protons, neutrons, and electrons, as well as models of simple molecules. Topics like valence electrons, bond energy, ionic complexes, ions, and isotopes will be introduced at the high school level. (PS1.A)
