In this 4 day class, your child will be introduced to the wonder of chemistry. They will be learning about atomic structure, why we have chemical reactions, and they will be introduced to the periodic table of the elements. On day 1, we will learn about atomic structure: the nucleus, protons, neutrons, electrons, and the electron cloud. The kids will be introduced to the periodic table as well. The kids will be engaged through a slideshow, video clips, and a hands-on project....
This class is taught in English.
Students will learn basics of: atomic structure, chemical bonding, electrons, and how to read the information on the periodic table.
I have taught chemistry to elementary age children as a public school teacher and on Outschool. I have also taught chemistry to middle school students through my local homeschool co-op, and high school chemistry to teens in my homeschool co-op.
5 files available upon enrollmentDay 1 Choice of: Clay, play-doh, gummy bears, gumdrops, or colored marshmallows (any other small objects like buttons, sequins,dried beans) 1 copy of the periodic table needs to be printed for class.
