FOSS Module Summary

Module Summary – Delta Inquiry Investigations – Atoms and Molecules

This durable, plastic model easily allows students to graphically model the components of the atom. Learn about the structure of atoms and ions, and model the formation of ionic and covalent bonds. Using color-coded plastic manipulatives, students construct familiar molecules and compounds including soaps, detergents, acids, bases, and salts. Using the 3-D models, students explore the crystal lattice structure of salt, and learn about organic compounds and hydrocarbons.
