The students will work in cooperative groups to construct Bohr models of “mystery” elements and record missing information about each element. Students will also create a new “mystery” element card for a classmate to analyze and determine its identity.
By the end of this activity, students should be able to:
• Correctly construct a Bohr model for an atom.
• Describe an atom in terms of mass, electrical charge, and subatomic particles.
• Identify that protons determine an element’s identity.
