History of Atomic Theory
Using the Bohr model, review the structure of an atom with your young chemists. Groups will then work together to research a scientist who contributed to our current atomic theory: John Dalton, J.J. Thompson, Ernest Rutehrford, or Niels Bohr.

Atomic Theories Chart Worksheet
Here is a research assignment for your physical scientists on the history of atomic theory. Pupils look up information by the name of contributing scientists. Designed as a large data table, the page requires learners to write a description of the theory or experiment that was done to develop it, sketch a model representing the theory, and provide a works-cited reference using APA format.

Activity #3 Are Particles "Real?"
Students verbalize a simple particle theory, They apply their particle theory to explain what happens during chemical reactions and how this theory supports the law of conservation of matter. Pupils comprehend that the atomic theory, is the idea of atoms and moleucles existing as submicroscopic particles, can be used to explain what happens in chemical reactions and to comprehend the basis for the law of conservation of matter.

Just How Small Is an Atom?
Using a massive cartoon blueberry as an atom model, an animated astronaut describes an atom's anatomy and the density of its nucleus. After showing this featurette, you can have young physical scientists construct atom models. Also, be sure to set learners up at computers to explore the interactive resources available through the Dig Deeper feature.
