Want to make it easier to teach your students to create Bohr models of an atom? Check out how to use electron magnets to illustrate and teach this important skill.
My sister gave me a set of colored, circular magnets for my classroom. I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to use them for at the time, but they came in SUPER-handy when we were making Bohr models of atoms in physical science.
This happened to coincide with my almost month long experience of having no projector and therefore no SMARTboard in my classroom. Let’s just say that magnets make awesome electrons!
Maybe this is one of those ideas that every other science teacher has already figured out. But, I was pretty proud of myself for coming up with this idea!

I like to use them for teaching with integers

Great idea. Not sure why I didn't think of that!
