A ready-to-go lesson for introducing the structure of the atom. A PowerPoint presentation complete with student fill-in-the-blank note sheet introduces elements, element symbols, parts/charges of subatomic particles, quarks, particle accelerator and current model of atomic structure. A follow up handout is included that walks students through theories of atomic structure, including Democritus, Thomson, Rutherford, Bohr, and the Electron Cloud Model. A short explanation is given describing the theory and a place is given for students to draw this idea.
**Updated: This resource now includes an INB activity (see preview) that walks students through atomic theory and gives background on the scientists that have contributed, and the changes in atomic theory that resulted.
Save yourself a planning period with this ready to go lesson! Check out the preview!
