Students in Joe Kline’s eighth grade science classes at Allapattah Flats K-8 have been recently studying atoms. The students completed a hands-on science lab where they created atoms from clay. Students had to create the protons, neutrons, and electrons. In addition, they are building their own periodic table using their own elements — all while calculating the important parts of the atom.
