It can be challenging to learn the atomic structure of elements and how such structure leads to trends in the periodic table. Teachers using visual and tactile models can overcome the abstract nature of the subject and greatly enhance student conceptualization. This kit takes a topic normally taught with memorization and transforms it into a fun, hands-on learning experience! Kit contains materials representing atomic structures and electron arrangement within elements. It also provides materials necessary to demonstrate how atomic arrangement relates to placement in the periodic table of elements. The kit was developed by experienced chemistry teachers and has been refined and tested to meet your class’s needs.
The kit contains an energy level template and enough nuclear areas, orbitals, and electrons to represent the first 36 elements. Each nucleus and orbital is color coded to match a large periodic chart depicting trends in electron orbital arrangement and electronegativity. All manipulatives are magnetic, colorful, reusable, and highly visible. Also included are a large ionization energy chart for the first 36 elements and five sets of smaller, reusable student manipulatives suitable for a class of 30 students. Science standards expect students to identify and explain periodic trends, including atomic and ionic radii, electronegativity, and ionization energy - this kit makes it easy! An included instructional CD and teaching manual provides a slide show to walk you through using the kit for the first time. This complete package is fun to use and will save you time and frustration!WARNING: Choking Hazard. Small Parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
