The Inside the Atom Lab is a fun way to teach kids about how the nucleus was discovered and how atoms are made mostly of space!!
Hide a marble, penny, or any other small object inside a clay ball and have students poke toothpicks through to model Ernest Rutherford's famous experiment!
This lab includes a visual of his experiment as well as conclusion questions. It's a great way to introduce atoms and drawing models of them!
