Counting atoms chart due 12/5/19



Quiz on Wednesday 12/11/19


Let's get physical! The 8th grade have been learning about atoms. Students created 3D models of atoms through the years, from the very first model of the atom to the most current version. Students were to remember that the modern nuclear atomic model includes a nucleus made of protons and nuetrons, with electrons orbitting around. Students also learned how to count the number of atoms in an element when working with chemical formulas! 


Things got galactic in the science hallway once all of the 8th grade projects were on display! In our last chapter, we spent time learning about galaxies and stars, including the life cycle of a star. Students created awesome 3D models displaying the life cycle!
