Title of Presentation or Activity Description
Atomic Structure Battleship  Blow up the periodic table with Atomic Structure Battleship!!! Test your knowledge of atomic structure against one of your classmates. From your knowledge of the elements on the periodic table and their atomic structure try to sink all your opponent’s ships before they sink you. The player with the most knowledge of the elements will be victorious and rule the elemental sea. 
ATOMS  The lesson and associated activities are designed to introduce students to atoms and get them thinking about how atoms are a part of our daily lives. The students will learn how atoms, matter and molecules all relate to each other. The Atoms BINGO will reinforce the concepts learned throughout the lesson. 
Atoms - Finding a Balance  Atoms are the basic unit of matter. They are composed of protons, neutrons, and electrons. In this lesson students will learn what a valence electron is, how to find the number of valence electrons using a periodic table, and how to determine the charge of an atom. 
ATOMS Bingo  The purpose of this lesson is for students to learn the names and symbols of different elements on the periodic table. Played just like Bingo, each student will be given a card that has rows and columns of different element symbols. Tested on their knowledge of the names of these elements, the students will have to match the name that is called out with the symbol on the card. 
Attack of the Killer Mosquitoes! Scientific Modeling and the Scientific Method  This activity explores the scientific method and how scientific modeling fits in to the scientific method as a whole. Designed around the premise of an outbreak of yellow fever, this activity introduces students to scientific modeling and has students participate in a hands-on activity to test a simple model of vector-borne disease. Afterwards, the class discusses the results and their applicability to the real world. The entire activity is structured around the scientific method. This activity is a supplement to the PEER module “Texas, 1867,” but it can stand alone.
