Use this hands-on kit to make the abstract concept of “atoms” become more visual and real for students. The activities in this kit utilize colored chips as models for atoms and molecules. Students count and manipulate the “atom” chips until all atoms in the equation are conserved and then write the final equation on the provided data sheets. Detailed activity sheets guide students through the atom-accounting process. Includes a magnetic wand, 100 wire-rimmed counting chips for teacher overhead demonstrations, 1,000 colored chips for student use, background information, reproducible student instructions and data tables.
