I am not convinced that when the standards say "computational model" they mean a computer simulation. I believe they intend students to use mathematical formulas to show the relationships. If you look at  https://betterlesson.com/browse/common_core/standard/2284/ngss-hs-ps3-1-create-a-computational-model-to-calculate-the-change-in-the-energy-of-one-component-in-a-system-when-the-change-in?from...

I do a lab on the mechanical equivalent of heat that I really enjoy. http://www.gigaphysics.com/Mechanical_Equivalent_Heat.pdf http://boomeria.org/labsphys/physlabook/lab22.pdf I think what I have done is similar to the second link. I like this because it has different types of energy conversions.

A classic experiment on the conservation of mass is mixing baking soda and vinegar in a sealed ziplock bag.   This lab is similar to what I have done. http://www.mlbgsd.k12.pa.us/cms/lib/PA09000085/Centricity/Domain/83/conservation_mass_lab4.pdf You can use small plastic cups instead of beakers. I'm not sure how you could relate it to the periodic table, other than looking up the elements in ...
