(Science)Pudong Grade 2: All about atoms!

In Grade 2 science class, we had a blast learning all about atoms! Students learned that not all matter is the same. We explored what matter is made of and discovered atoms. Then we started thinking about what is inside of an atom! Do you know what’s in an atom? Our students do! We found out that the atom has tiny little parts inside! They know that atoms have electrons that fly around a nucleus, with protons and neutrons inside. After our discussion about atoms, we had the opportunity to make an atom model! The students worked together in groups to create some colorful and beautiful atoms. Next time you visit our classroom be sure to check out the atom models hanging around!
