I love teaching about molecules and atoms, kids seem to love it too! Talk about how everything is matter; they, their books, desks, clothes, the air, etc. and matter is made of atoms. Here is a GREAT website that has a ton of information and games, written at a level the kids can understand:

After they have an idea of what atoms are, we construct some using pipe cleaners (electron shells), pom-poms (different colors for protons and neutrons) and beads (electrons). The kids love putting them together and they look great hanging from the ceiling.

Good luck, have fun!
