Atomic “puzzler” activity provides a fun way to review core atomic structure concepts! Kit consists of 15 unique puzzle sheets, each with 20 different atomic structure “clues” testing students’ knowledge of atomic number, mass number, isotopes, ions, protons, neutrons and electrons. Students, working in pairs, answer the questions on their puzzle sheets in numerical order and then turn them over to reveal a letter or punctuation mark needed to decode a secret message about the nature of the atom. All student groups must enter their clues in the proper order, 300 total, to decipher the hidden message! A great cooperative class activity—your students will love breaking the code!
Complete for 15 groups of students.
