Title Build an Atom Game Remote Lab
Description PhET games can be used for inquiry learning or practice. This lesson has some guidance for learning and practice. Learning Goals: Students will be able to Make atom models that show stable atoms or ions. Use given information about subatomic particles to Identify an element and its position on the periodic table Draw models of atoms Determine if the model is for a neutral atom or an ion. Predict how addition or subtraction of a proton, neutron, or electron will change the element, the charge, and the mass of their atom or ion. Describe all vocabulary words needed to meet the goals. Use a periodic symbol to tell the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons in an atom or ion. Draw the symbol for the element as you would see on the periodic table
