Year 9 have shown a good understanding of the periodic table during our first science lessons for the spring term. The students were set the task of labelling an atomic model. They were then asked to identify the elements and symbols within the periodic table.
New vocabulary was introduced. This included words such as atoms, electrons, protons and neutrons. We learnt how protons and neutrons are at the centre of an atom.
The final task was to search the periodic table to find some missing symbols and elements in a worksheet.
