Weekly Disney Days Activities

  1. Inner space

  2. Molecules are the building blocks of life - Students make models of water molecules

  3. Atoms are the building blocks of Molecules. Atoms determine what the molecule is

  4. Atoms have a nucleus made up of positive and neutral electrons, while negative electrons orbit the nucleus. Math Challenge: Counting Electrons

  5. Energy (and light) is released when a negative electron drops to a lower level of orbit from the nucleus.

  6. By changing the negative electrons, the molecule can be changed, changing the element itself to a new element or material

  7. Electrons, magnets and electricity have a clear relationship where magnets create electricity and electricity can create amazing magnetic forces
