This 23 slide PowerPoint presentation covers 8 scientists from Democritus to Einstein who helped advance our understanding of the atom.
Simple and easy to use. Can be used with Cornell notes. I have the students create a timeline out of the information, along with illustrations of how the model of the atom changed as our understanding of the atom grew.
