Atoms Make Up all that “Matter”

Science has been quite exciting lately in our class. We have been learning about the tiniest particles that make up all matter-ATOMS. We have been learning about the structure of an atom, to locating elements on the periodic table. As a part of research, each student has reseached an element and put together a poster of fascinating facts. We are learning so much about the natural elements on Earth.

The other day we used gum drops and toothpicks to create molecules and compounds. As a closer, we all enjoyed a sweet treat as we chowed down on our atom pieces! Physical science has been so much fun this year, and there is more fun to come.
