C1 THE PARTICULATE NATURE OF MATTER (AND C3.3 ATOMIC STRUCTURE)
Before you start you can look back at 7G Solids, liquids and Gases, 7H Solutions or 8EF Elements, Mixtures and Compounds.
If you only remember one thing...
ATOMS HAVE PROTONS (+) AND NEUTRONS (O) IN THEIR NUCLEUS AND THE ELECTRONS (-) FLY AROUND IN SHELLS.
This is the first of the 14 Chemistry units:
C5. Electricity and Chemistry
C6. Energy Changes in Chemical Reactions
C7. Chemical Reactions
C8. Acids, Bases and Salts
C9. The Periodic Table
C11. Air and Water
C14. Organic Chemistry
Have a look at the Bitesize activity on atomic structure.

A video about electron shells.
An excellent video about electrons and how/why they affect reactivity. (Be careful we won´t use Lewis dot structure in this topic)
