Atoms, Electrons and Energy Kit
Teach atomic structure and how atomic structure leads to periodic trends with this visual and tactile model set. Kit includes materials for both teacher demonstration and student study of the atomic structure and electron arrangement of the first 36 elements.
A large, magnetic energy level template includes 4 energy levels and space for each element's nucleus, orbitals, and electrons. Each color-coded magnetic element nucleus shows element symbol, atomic number, and electronegativity number. Color-coding helps students orient each element on the included magnetic periodic table depicting trends in electron orbital arrangement and electronegativity. Color-coded magnetic s, p, and d orbitals assist in the conceptualization of electron arrangement and trends. A large, magnetic 1st ionization energy chart for elements hydrogen through calcium is also included.
Kit also comes with 10 laminated, reusable desk-sized energy templates and sets of colorful non-magnetic orbitals so small groups of students can model the elements' energy levels. A teacher's manual and an instructional CD provide step-by-step guidance for classroom success. Kit is designed for a class of 30 students.
