This unit is designed to introduce students to chemistry in a bite-sized way that is accessible and even fun. It starts by explaining what atoms are and what they are made of. Next, it explores elements and how they are arranged in the periodic table. The first twenty elements of the periodic table are looked at in detail; the remaining elements are looked at by class. Atomic number, mass number, and isotopes are also explored. Numerous diagrams are given to help make these concepts accessible and easier to understand.
At the end of the unit, students can review 19 vocabulary words, label several related diagrams, and enjoy a review activity. Answer keys are provided. 26 pages total. Ages 11-13.
All measurements are given in both English and metric. This title does not discuss origins or the age of the earth. If you would like to explore the topics in this book from a Creation science worldview, free downloadable discussion helps are available.
