What is Matter?
Four diagrams of the atom and their subatomic particles and structures are given here and learners should be able to complete the labels need to define the structures shown. The main structures defined are protons, neutrons, electrons, the nucleus and quarks.

Here is a 25-question Jeopardy-style game to use as a review with physical science classes on elements, the periodic table, atomic structure, and basic chemical reactions. If there are any questions that you did not cover with your class, or you are not pleased by the overall appearance of the slides (colors, formatting, fonts), you can easily enable editing and make changes as you see fit.

Mystery : Structure of the Atom-A Case for Indirect Evidence
Students investigate the structure of the atom through hands on activities. In this atomic structure lesson, students perform 4 activities showing indirect evidence of the structure of the atom and the parts of the atom. They also list important terms related to the atom and define each.

Guess What? A Lesson About Atoms
Students examine mystery objects to understand that every object is made up of mass.In this mass lesson, students observe, compare and draw inferences about objects and their mass. Students later extend this to the microscopic components (atoms) of objects.

What do Atoms Look Like?
In this atom worksheet, students complete 60 questions about the trends in atoms such as ionization energy and atomic radius, about valence electrons, about the families of elements, about metals, non-metals and semi-metals, about the size of atoms and about the atomic structure of atoms.

Learners investigate what is inside three different boxes using indirect observations and relate it to the discovery of the structure of the atom. In this atomic structure lesson plan, students explore the history of atomic structure by experimenting with indirect observations of 3 boxes and testing Rutherford's equation using a box and marbles.

Up and Atom
"Up and Atom" is a mini-unit introducing middle-schoolers to the wonders of elements. Participants draw atom models, examine the periodic table, compare samples of metals to nonmetals, identify unknown elements, and more! The beginning of this unit is based on two videos that you probably do not have, but they are easily left out without detracting from the overall value.

History of Atomic Theory
Using the Bohr model, review the structure of an atom with your young chemists. Groups will then work together to research a scientist who contributed to our current atomic theory: John Dalton, J.J. Thompson, Ernest Rutehrford, or Niels Bohr.

Learning About Atoms: Introduction to Protons, Neutrons and Electrons
The highlight of this atom instructional activity is the link to a midi of "The Addams Family" song. The instructions include it in the anticipatory set, but no lyrics are provided. Perhaps a way to use this would be to have groups work together to write lyrics, making sure to include facts about atomic structure.

The Atom Board - Making Atoms
In this atom instructional activity, chemists learn how to determine the number of protons, neutrons and electrons in an atom using the atomic mass and atomic number. They complete a chart of the subatomic particles and use marbles to represent protons, neutrons and electrons of the 11 atoms as they model each.

WS 3.3 Atomic Weight and Ions
In this atomic weight and ions learning exercise, students answer questions about isotopes of atoms and how it relates to atomic weight. They also write out oxidation or reduction reactions for given atoms undergoing loss or gain of electrons.
