Constructing Bohr Models

Grades: 10th Grade, 11th Grade, 12th Grade
Subjects: Science

Student Instructions

Use the drawing and label tools to help remember a new concept. Students will choose at random 3 element cards Each student (using the periodic table) will take an element out of the bag and place it in the square at the bottom of the card. 1. Tap the add button. 2. Tap the drawing tool to sketch the number of protons and electrons on the 3. Tap the label tool. Using the different colored text, the students will identify which color text represent each subatomic particle. Students will then calculate the number of protons, electrons and neutrons in that element. Then they will write the number of protons and neutrons in the nucleus and construct (draw the dots) of the Bohr model with the electrons. 4. Use the mic and record yourself explaining the concept. 5. Tap the check to add to your portfolio.

Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Drawings in Seesaw are preserved and provide evidence for students and teachers as they reflect on progress over time. In Seesaw, not only is it easy for teachers to see all of the students’ drawings in one place, but students can later use others’ drawings as a resource or a helpful study tool. This activity works great when your lesson asks students to sketch, work through a problem, or draw a diagram. To do this activity with students…. 1. Share this activity by tapping the green Share button 2. Students sign in to Seesaw. 3. Students follow the steps to complete the activity.
