Summer SAVY 2014 Session 4, Day 4 – Marvelous Molecules (Rising 2nd/3rd)
Electrons were bonding and mixing it up today in class. We found out the difference between elements, compounds, and mixtures. Elements including krypton can be found on the Periodic Table of Elements while compounds consist of elements bonded together. Students learned how the electrons in atoms help to create these bonds. The students went on to learn how to decipher chemical formulas including understanding chemical symbols and determining the number of atoms of each element in a compound. We also learned that chemistry is all around us including when we saw all those fireworks on the Fourth of July!
See you tomorrow!
