NaCl Lattice© Patterns in Crystal Structures - Math

STEM: The Math, Science and Art of Crystals Using a Salt Lattice Model

This activity, intended for grades 3-5, uses the sodium chloride magnetic models and a guided-inquiry approach. It will help students begin to recognize multiple ways of solving a problem, practice pattern recognition, and make and test predictions. Students will examine the NaCl Lattice© and determine the number of blue and green balls in the cube. Then they will predict how many smaller cubes can be made from larger cubes, and test their predictions.
