This is an excellent resource to teach students all the basics about what the elements are. The reading is a detailed source which discusses the periodic table, chemical symbols, atomic number, atomic mass. It also teaches students how to find the number of protons, neutrons and electrons.

This is a great reading as an introduction, or as a review for a unit on the Structure of Matter, which is part of the NGSS standard for "Structure and Properties of Matter."

There are 14 reading questions to guide the students along with the reading and are complete with teacher's answer key.

NGSSMS-PS1-1
Develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules and extended structures. 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 does not include valence electrons and bonding energy, discussing the ionic nature of subunits of complex structures, or a complete depiction of all individual atoms in a complex molecule or extended structure.
NGSSHS-PS1-1
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.
