Storyboard Text

  • It's fine!
  • C'mon lets go!!
  • We decided to go swimming...
  • I discovered the nucleus...
  • No it's fine to swim
  • Don't go swimming! There is something in there...
  • This is new... I guess the bird was right!
  • No! I'm shrinking into what looks like an atom
  • I was shrunk inside an atom...
  • I grew back into life size...
  • What are you talking about? I'm not changing!
  • I told you!!
  • Valance electrons are the electrons on the outermost shell. Oxygen has 6
  • We said goodbye and went home!
  • I travelled in the electron shell...
  • Oxygen has 8 electrons which are placed on the electron shells
  • The electrons have negative charge (-1)
  • This is an oxygen atom (O symbol) because it has an electron configuration of 2,6
  • What else can you see?
  • Oxygen has 8 protons and its atomic number is 8 as it is calculated by the number of protons
  • This is the nucleus where the protons and neutrons are located
  • The atomic mass is the number of protons and neutrons, oxygen has a mass of 15.999 meaning oxygen has 7.999 neutrons
  • Im growing back to life size!
  • Oxygen is located on the periodic table in period 2 and group 16
  • On the periodic table, periods are the rows (across) and group are the columns (down)
  • Oxygen is a non-metallic element on the periodic table
  • Okay, let's just get out of here!
  • Did you know that Oxygen was discovered in 1772 by a Swedish chemist, Carl Wilhelm Scheele
  • Bye!!
  • Well that was a strange Sunday!
