Create a model of an atom based on information found in the periodic table.
2.1

  1. American Elements - This commercial site offers an interactive periodic table. This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  2. A PowerPoint show related to this standardAtoms: The Building Blocks of Matter - a 23 slide PowerPoint show
  3. A PowerPoint show related to this standardBasic Building Blocks of Green Chemicals - from green chemistry and the ten commandments of sustainability - a 54-slide PowerPoint show
  4. Building Block Chemistry - The goal of Building Block Chemistry is to introduce students to chemistry without tackling the whole periodic table at once.
  5. Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev - We will never be able to attribute to a single individual the development of the basic building blocks of writing. Yet we do know the name of the man who devised the method of classifying the basic building blocks of matter. Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev!
  6. Flash version of the table - Move your cursor over an elements for information. This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  7. It's Elemental - Element Math Game - answer the question that the computer asks about the number of protons, neutrons, electrons or nucleons (particles in the nucleus) that an atom of that element contains. Press the 'Check my answer' button after you have entered your answer. This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  8. A PowerPoint show related to this standardParts of an Atom and Organization of The Periodic Table - a 29 slide PowerPoint show plus nine assessment slides at the end of the show
  9. Periodic Table of the Elements This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  10. Periodic Table from ChemiCool This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  11. A PowerPoint show related to this standardPeriodic Table - This common chemistry tool is presented as a PowerPoint show with web links to pages about each element. Invisible buttons are used on slide 2. (There are 109 invisible buttons on one slide.) Download the show and take a look!
  12. A PowerPoint show related to this standardThe Periodic Table and the Elements - a 19 slide PowerPoint show

  2. Compounds - includes tables of examples
  3. Element, Compound, and Mixture - a quiz from Quia This site includes questions for your students to check their understanding
  4. Element, Compound, or Mixture - a ten question quiz This site includes questions for your students to check their understanding
  5. Element Formulas - From the name of an element, determine the formula (if different from the symbol)
  6. Element or Compound - from the name of a chemical, determine whether it is an element or compound
  7. A PowerPoint show related to this standardElement or Compound - a 58 slide PowerPoint show with good images, questions, and assignments
  8. Is a Diamond Element or Compound - answer to the question from Ask A Scientist
  9. Network or Molecular Compounds - from the name of a compound, determine whether it is network or molecular
