Atomic Theory Timeline Activity

Atomic Theory Timeline Activity
Product Description
Transform a mundane atomic theory lesson into a hands on activity that will captivate your students' attention! Students will read and process short paragraphs that briefly explain scientists' contributions to the modern atomic theory. Students integrate reading process skills to create a timeline for six scientists: John Dalton, JJ Thomas, Robert Millikan, Ernest Rutherford, Niels Bohr, Erwin Schrodinger. They will then include the attached scientist's picture, their name, life span, contributions to atomic theory and research mistakes in a timeline.

The timeline is a great resource to include in a science journal or post on the wall. It can be created during one class time and easily finished at home.

The timeline activity can be easily differentiated for various academic abilities.
