3D Atom Model Project Ms. Bernal
3D Atom Project You will build a 3D model of an atom from one of the elements on the periodic table (4-20). • In the Nucleus: • You must include the number of Protons • You must include the number of Neutrons • You must include the number of Electrons • The electrons need to be in the correct “Energy Shells/Levels” • All parts should be labeled or provide a key to represent each part.
Materials Be creative! Your model should be unique, colorful, and attractive. Put the model together with care and quality. Using homemade items or things you find around the home is great. It is the care and attention you put into constructing your model that is important, not the expense of the parts You may use: • Clothes hanger • Candy • Erasers • Pipe cleaners • Wire • Styrofoam balls • Poster board • Display board • Ping pong balls • Paint • String • Beans • Push pins • Play dough
A Perfect Example!!! • Atom Display Board
Essay Write 4 paragraphs about your element. (100 points) • A paragraph is a minimum of 4 or 5 sentences. Typed is preferable. • Cover Sheet with graphics that are related to your element. Name, date and period should be on the cover sheet. (20 points) • Paragraph 1: The basics: Element information, when it was discovered, by whom, where was it found etc… (20 points) • Paragraph 2: Write about the number of Protons, Neutrons, Electrons, and the number of Energy Shells/Levels. (20 points) • Paragraph 3: Write about how your element is used, what period and group does it belong to on the periodic table, it’s density, the melting point, and some interesting facts about it. (20 points) • Paragraph 4: Write about your atom construction experience. Materials used, difficulties, discussions you might have had at home, things you learned in the process, and who helped you.
