Chemistry Models

[Kids with equipment]

[Chemistry Models guide]

Chemistry Models includes the Atom Building Game and Periodic Table Tiles, engaging hands-on tools for exploring the structure of atoms and the periodic table. Students build atoms using colored marbles that represent electrons, protons, and neutrons. Pockets in the board correspond to the energy levels of the s, p, and d orbitals for electron shells one to five. The reverse side of each periodic table tile displays a common element, allowing students to construct and balance equations for many molecules and compounds.
