Use colored chips and the information from a periodic table to model the sub-atomic particles (protons, neutrons, and electrons) in atoms, isotopes, and ions.
HS-PS1-1. Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms.
Developing and Using Models - Use a model to predict the relationships between systems or between components of a system.
PS1.A: Structure and Properties of Matter - Each atom has a charged substructure consisting of a nucleus, which is made of protons and neutrons, surrounded by electrons.
Patterns - Different patterns may be observed at each of the scales at which a system is studied and can provide evidence for causality in explanations of phenomena.
