    atoms activity
    By Debra L. May

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I use Fruit Loops and paper plates to model the parts of an atom. Each student is given a handful of cereal and a plate. Each is assigned an element with a relatively low atomic number. Choosing a color for each part (green=proton, etc.), they glue each piece to the plate. To correspond with this model, they attach a key (index card)to give further information about their project. They often have plenty of cereal left over to snack on!
