Inquiries in Science®: Reconstructing Atomic Theory Kit

Item # 251219 Exclusive

Grades 9–12. Students “time travel” through history to simulate past experiments and explore how critical discoveries shaped and modified modern atomic theory. They use models to describe atomic structure, learn how to use different atomic representations, and practice writing the electron configuration of an element using information from the periodic table. Kit includes enough materials for at least 30 students working in groups.

  • Model atoms based on information from the periodic table
  • Observe and explain metal salt flame tests
  • Help students meet the Next Generation Science Standards Performance Expectation 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

Grades 9–12. Students “time travel” through history to simulate past experiments and explore how critical discoveries shaped and modified modern atomic theory. First, they connect their observations of a flame test to the movement of electrons between orbitals. Next, students use models to describe atomic structure, learn how to use different atomic representations, and practice writing the electron configuration of an element using information from the periodic table. Finally, they apply their knowledge of atomic models to create detailed descriptions of a representation of an atom. Kit includes materials for 30 students working in groups of 3. Kit Refill (item #251269, sold separately) replenishes all the kit’s consumable items.
