Lesson

Atomic Structure - Electron Arrangement in Atom

Lesson Overview

1.    Utilize their prior knowledge and thorough understanding of the atom, it’s structure, history that led to the modern atomic model 
2.    Revisit the following vocabularies; atom,
 proton,
 neutron,
 electron,
 nucleus,
 atomic
 model, electrical charge, mass number.
3.    Create an art work of Bohr’s atomic model.
4.    Make a media presentation of an atom that correlates to a chosen element using the following apps; Google Slides, Prezi or Power Point.
5.    Solve for the missing information based on a given data and identify the element with the use of the periodic table.

Essential Question

1.    How do you compare and contrast an atom and an isotope?
2.    How do you identify the element based on the number of neutrons given? Show one sample computation.
3.    How does Bohr’s atomic model differ from the rest of of the atomic models?
4.    How can electrons in an atom move from one energy level to another?
