1 Atoms 1) Describe what an atom is. Lesson aims:-1) Describe what an atom is.2) Compare the atoms in an element andnon-element.3) Give the symbols of some of the mainelements.4) Describe how atoms join to each other to makeelements and non-elements.

3 Each atom has its own symbol found on the Periodic table.
4 Elements & Non-Elements Elements contain one type of atomMgMgMgMgMgMgMgMgNon-elements contain different types of atomsCuO
5 Joining atoms together Atoms can be joined (Bonded) together to make elementsand non-elements.Make some element and non-element molecules using themolymod kits provided.RULE: No balls (atoms) should have any holes withoutsticks in them.Were any models the same?You should see how a few ‘building blocks’ (atoms) can make a whole range of different substances.Can you identify which models represent elements and which non-elements?
