Average Atomic Mass
Using a chart of student test grades as an example, curious chemists learn how to calculate weighted averages. They apply this knowledge to elements on the periodic table. As practice in calculating average atomic masses, learners evaluate neon and chlorine.

Composition of the Atom
High schoolers investigate the structure of the atom and its composition. In this atom structure lesson, students find the area of cut out circles and drop pens into the circles. They count the number of marks in the circles and relate their results to Rutherford's experiment.

Atomic Structure and Ionic Bonding (A Visual Approach)
Using toothpicks, marshmallows, and round colored sticky dots, physical science enthusiasts build models of an atomic nucleus. For this eighth grade chemistry lesson plan, they play an atom-naming game with the models that they have constructed.

Atoms, Ions and Formula Basics Make-up Test
Using a copy of the periodic table, chemistry test takers fill in a chart with element name, chemical symbol, atomic number, atomic mass, and numbers of subatomic particles. They define subatomic particles, draw atom models, explain ions, and determine the number of valence electrons for various elements.

Atoms and Elements
Eighth graders complete several centers in which they design a brochure on an element, create an elemental trading card and complete a timeline of the development of an atom. In this element lesson students work together in teams to complete these tasks.

Finding Atomic Weight with Matrices
There is something magical about atomic weight. Let learners in your class use a graphing calculator to solve systems of equations related to atomic weight. They use matrix equations and inverse operations to create matrices that describe given compounds.

Atoms and Molecular Bonding
Students explore concepts of atoms and molecular bonding. In this molecular bonding activity, students write balance chemical equations to describe elements that tend to bond together. This activity includes several activities, extensions, and assessment.

The Atomic Model
Everything is made of Atoms and the number of electrons and neutrons an atom has determine what form it will take. This class dresses up as the components of an atom to demonstrate the Atomic Model. Great for kinesthetic and visual learners, not to watch but to do.

What's in an Atom?
This old but charming video is part of a longer film. It is not practical for teaching about atomic particles, but it can be used to explore the history of atomic theory. There are interactive quizzes about atomic particles on the website, but you will need to do more teaching on the subject in order to use them.

Physical Science - The Structure of an Atom
Drawings on an interactive whiteboard are used to introduce the basic structure of an atom. Technically, the model drawn is inaccurate, as three electrons are shown on the innermost orbital. Electron orbitals are not the intent of the lesson, therefore this is a sufficient explanation of the general structure, especially for younger scientists.

Electricity and Matter Part 4 - Atoms and Elements
Consisting entirely of photos and simple graphics, this fundamental video is an informative presentation. Topics include elements, molecules, chemical bonds, atomic mass, isotopes, and ionization. Because it covers a wide range, it would be best used as a review for an introductory chemistry unit.

Atoms and Molecules
Part of a longer video created by Disney, this segment opens with a history of the telescope and microscope. This old-fashioned video is a sufficient introduction to the topic of atoms. The animations are antiquated, but they are still practical for explaining molecular motion.
