Students make a copy of a Google drawing, and manipulate objects on the drawing to build a wide variety of models. This includes 5 activities and directions for use:
1. Modeling ionic formulas
2. Building models of atoms
3. Building energy diagrams for electron configurations
4. Modeling a sugar water solution
5. Building simple Lewis structures
The NGSS framework encourages students to build and use models. This is frequently done with costly, bulky manipulatives. At the same time, many schools and districts are increasing student access to Chromebooks and other devices and teachers are using LMS's. Address both of these by using models that students construct using tools in Google docs and allow for teacher grading in the appropriate LMS's.
All activities are customizable to meet your specific classroom needs.
