I loved Betty Downing's descriptions--thanks Winy for posting the question and Betty for answering. The descriptions of half and whole rests were especially helpful for me. They are easily confused by beginning music readers.
As for chords: the notes are arranged and aligned vertically--I tell my students it looks like they're stacked on top of each other. If the notes of a chord are very close together--in intervals of seconds, for instance, or when written on leger lines or spaces--they may be offset a bit so they don't just blend into this big indistinguishable blob.
In the "C" shape of the bass clef, the opening of the "C" goes to the left.
