Who's that Scientist?
Atoms & Elements Unit
Students will be able to…
• Identify the experiment, discovery, atomic model, and/or theory presented by Dalton, Thomson, Millikan, Rutherford, Bohr, and Chadwick. (Activity)
• Identify the experiment, discovery, atomic model, and/or theory presented by Democritus, Dalton, Thomson, Millikan, Rutherford, Bohr, and Chadwick, and Identify the definitions and properties of protons, neutrons, and electrons (WS).

• “Who’s that Scientist? Activity” Option #1:
Print, laminate (optional), and cut-out 10-12 sets of “Who’s that Scientist? Activity” cards. Then, place each set of cards in a bag. Ask students to get into groups of 2-3. Give each group a set of cards. Students should place the Scientist cards (Dalton, Thomson, Millikan, Rutherford, Bohr, and Chadwick) on a desk/table. Students should then match up each statement or picture with the correct scientist. The activity can be repeated during another class as a review, but when repeating the activity - time students. The group with the fastest time wins! Be sure to provide students with time to practice so they can try to be the winning team (in the process you encourage better memorization of the material!).
• “Who’s that Scientist? Activity” Option #2:
Students will cut-out the “Who’s that Scientist? Activity” cards. Students will then pair up the correct statement/picture cards with each scientist card. After pairing up the cards appropriately, students will glue down the cards. Students may glue the cards in their interactive notebook or on a foldable. Students may also use the cards to create a scientist time-line poster.
• “Who am I? WS” Directions:
In this WS, students must determine which scientist or subatomic particle to whom the statement is referring. This WS may be used as a warm-up or HW assignment. After completing Activity Option #1, the WS could be used as a debrief and then placed in an interactive notebook.
