Website Detail Page

written by Linda Stefaniak
This web page outlines a student activity on atoms and the periodic table. The assignment includes instructions about how to write a children's book for 3rd and 4th graders on the topic of the elements from the cover to the end of the book. It is a performance-based activity designed to promote critical thinking about atomic and molecular structures as students characterize and model the structures in a storybook format.  Grading rubrics are also included.
