Exploring atoms - atom bingo

Exploring atoms - atom bingo
Publication Date: January, 2011
Type of Resource: Interactive/Simulation

In this online resource, students have the opportunity to consolidate their understanding of atomic structure through a bingo-like game.

The game involves building atoms from their sub-atomic components, including filling in the electron shells.

They can play individually or against each other (on different computers) to construct specific atoms in order to be the first to reach BINGO! 

The repetition of building the atoms structure is designed to consolidate the student's understanding of the structure of an atom and the differences between the atoms of different elements.
