Product Details

Increase students' knowledge of the elements by modeling the atomic structure of the first 18 elements. Use this model to explore the energy levels of electrons in the first three electron shells. This large mobile can be displayed and modified to reinforce the concept of atomic structure throughout the whole year. Includes two ceiling hangers, an erasable nucleus, five solid metal rings used as electron shells, 22 rubber spheres in two colors to represent electrons of s and p energy levels, a periodic table, and complete instructions.

Performance Expectations

MS-PS1-1: Develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules and extended structures.
HS-PS1-1: Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms.
HS-PS1-2: Construct and revise an explanation for the outcome of a simple chemical reaction based on the outermost electron states of atoms, trends in the periodic table, and knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties.
