Students investigate what is inside three different boxes using indirect observations and relate it to the discovery of the structure of the atom. In this atomic structure lesson plan, students explore the history of atomic structure by experimenting with indirect observations of 3 boxes and testing Rutherford's equation using a box and marbles.

Elements, Atoms, and the Periodic Table
Through three separate exercises, chemistry explorers examine common atoms, the periodic table, and atomic structure. They identify the structural features of an atom, read the periodic table of elements, and calculate the atomic weight of an atom, given its atomic number.

Up and Atom
"Up and Atom" is a mini-unit introducing middle-schoolers to the wonders of elements. Participants draw atom models, examine the periodic table, compare samples of metals to nonmetals, identify unknown elements, and more! The beginning of this unit is based on two videos that you probably do not have, but they are easily left out without detracting from the overall value.

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.

Learning About Atoms: Introduction to Protons, Neutrons and Electrons
The highlight of this atom lesson is the link to a midi of "The Addams Family" song. The instructions include it in the anticipatory set, but no lyrics are provided. Perhaps a way to use this would be to have groups work together to write lyrics, making sure to include facts about atomic structure.

Chemistry students review the trends found in the organization of the periodic table by completing this worksheet. They determine which of the given atoms has the largest ionic radius and which is the most electronegative. This worksheet has 6 matching, 4 true or false, 10 fill in the blank, and 2 problems to solve.

The Building Blocks
This PowerPoint is a comprehensive review of all the facts related to an atom's basic structure and function. What makes this unique is that it is geared toward an audience of junior geologists. After introducing the periodic table of elements, the composition of Earth's crust is mentioned.

What is Matter?
Four diagrams of the atom and their subatomic particles and structures are given here and students should be able to complete the labels need to define the structures shown. The main structures defined are protons, neutrons, electrons, the nucleus and quarks.

The Atom Board - Making Atoms
In this atom learning exercise, chemists learn how to determine the number of protons, neutrons and electrons in an atom using the atomic mass and atomic number. They complete a chart of the subatomic particles and use marbles to represent protons, neutrons and electrons of the 11 atoms as they model each.
