Class Experience

Students will learn about the 3 parts of an atom: protons, neutrons and electrons.  They will also learn how to construct basic atoms from information on the periodic table.
I believe young kids are curious about the world around them and how things work.  I know that younger kids can understand atoms if presented in a fun and engaging way.  I have not found anything more fun or engaging than candy!  
 1 file available upon enrollment
Students will need 2 things for this class: 1. Print out the Edible Atom printable provided 2. A bag of Skittles or M&Ms. Both work fine, just whichever the student prefers.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
