Can somebody explain this on the middle school level to me so I can teach it?

Electrons are in Energy levels, klmno.....

Each energy level can hold a maximum number of electrons.

If it's the outermost shell it can only hold 8

What happens to the rest of them, they go onto an outershell, and then the one with eight is no longer the outermost shell.

do you just keep putting 8 into each subsequent shell until you end up with electrons less than 8 for a shell. Or do you put eight in the "outermost", go beyond that one to the new outermost shell and dump the rest in there regardless of number?

i'm so confused!
