Make Atomic cookies!  Fun!

Here’s a fun Science experiment/lesson plan to discover the process of breaking down a large number of atoms into a single atom.

In The Teacher’s CafĂ©, teach the basics of what is an atom, plus find links to quizzes, videos, puzzles, reading comprehension worksheets and other activities you might find useful.

In this forum thread, find some really creative suggestions of ways to teach about atoms and molecules from a hands-on approach .

There’s a little gem hidden in the center of this page at Funtastic Unit Studies – find the link within the fourth paragraph or so, the one that says “Molecules Unit” – and you’ll find a unit study about Atoms and Molecules.  It’s really good!

Chem4Kids has a good overview of Atoms and Molecules with descriptive illustrations.

5th Grade Rocks has lyrics to a really cute song, “The Atoms Family.”

This honestly blew my mind, it’s a “Build and Atom” game.  I had no idea what I was doing, but I built Hydrogen! 

On Jefferson Lab you’ll find a tour of atoms.

Middle School Science’s website has some fun-looking resources.  Check out the Lego Activity: Using Legos to Represent Elements, Compounds and Mixtures (linked on the page, #5, a little ways down).

Ellen McHenry’s Basement Workshop has a helpful game to download and print off that teaches the arrangement of the elements on the periodic table.  After you’ve learned about the atomic number, her game “Element Connections” may be fun (for older students).  Also as a follow-up for older students, you may enjoy the “Quick Six” game, which reviews each element.

Scroll down the Science: Chemistry page at Collaborative Learning until you see the “Elements Game” link.

Let your child practice what they’ve learned with Jefferson Lab’s elements games.

Learn the basics about elements from Fact Monster or Chemicool.

Tie in a lesson about rocks and minerals and learn about Native Elements at Mineralogy 4 Kids.

Encyclopedia Britannica online’s article about atomic number is very helpful.

My Schoolhouse has a lesson and questions to answer to assess understanding.

Here is a video and detailed lesson about Atomic Number and Mass Number (better for advanced students).
