Itsy bitsy teeny weeny, yellow polka dot… wait! That’s not what we are talking about! We are talking about all those itsy bitsy building blocks that make up EVERYTHING in the universe!
In this lesson we will
• Zoom down from our amazing bodies down to the atom level
• Learn a little about atomic particles
• Create our own interactive atom model
If you have been looking for a HANDS-ON, interactive way to introduce atoms and subatomic particles, this is the lesson for you. Even young kids will gain a basic understanding of electrons circling a nucleus.
Play it at school or use it for homeschool with mixed ages.
Our lessons are very flexible but we recommend them for these ages.
