Title Playing with atoms
Description Activity allows students to explore how an atom is structured; they explore how to write these atoms with respect to atomic number, mass and charge. They are extended into exploring ionic structure and finish with some neat games. There is an introductory video link that explains how to use the simulation meaning teachers only need to help students. Would work nicely for 1-2 lessons.
