Students can use the Happy Atoms Set to explore and make observations to construct an evidence-based account of how an object made of a small set of pieces can be disassembled and made into a new object.
Students can use the Happy Atoms Set to develop a model to demonstrate that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.
Students can use the Happy Atoms Set to model and conduct an investigation to determine whether the mixing of two or more substances results in new substances.
Students can use the Happy Atoms Set to develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules and extended structures.
Students can use the Happy Atoms Set to develop and use a model to describe how the total number of atoms does not change in a chemical reaction.
Students can use the Happy Atoms Set to Plan and conduct an investigation to gather evidence to compare the structure of substances.
Students can use the Happy Atoms Set and mathematical representations to support the claim that atoms, and therefore mass, are conserved during a chemical reaction.
These Happy Atoms kits pair hands-on modeling with technology. Young or advanced students seeking to visualize complex molecules and reinforce their chemistry studies have it all within reach. These atoms 'bond' together using magnets that accurately portray the single bonds, double bonds, and free electrons that make up the molecules. The larger sets allow for more complex investigations. A free app gives students a wealth of information about the molecules they've created. Set includes a periodic table scanning mat, quick-start guide, and a 16-page experiment manual.
