History of the Atom
This is a tremendous overview of the tiny atom. Journey through the history of human understanding of this basic building block of matter. Examine each of the sub-atomic particles in detail: neutrons, protons, electrons, quarks. Peruse the periodic table of elements and discover electromagnetic forces. This is a classy and comprehensive compilation of chemistry slides that even includes a link to a 13-minute video.
Mmmmm! Radioactive "candium!" Nuclear physics or chemistry classes use M&M'S® to demonstrate the process of radioactive decay. Individuals pour out a bag of candies and record the number that fall M-side-up to represent the number of atoms that have decayed. They repeat the process several times, removing decayed atoms. There are a data table, analysis questions, and a graphing assignment included. Of course, your young scientists will want to eat the candy when they are finished!
Women's Achievement Quiz
How much do you or your class know about various achievements made by women thorughout history? Here is a set of 10 questions with answers all related to the accomplishments of women in science, politics, civil rights, and law.
What Is Inside the Atom?
Four lessons make up this mini unit about atomic structure and spectra. A pretest is provided to give an idea of what is already known about the atom. Through a series of demonstrations and lecture, you present the information to young chemists. They construct a fruit model of the boron atom. They fill in a chart using the periodic table of elements. They compare and contrast two potatoes as an example of how isotopes are related. Asides from the dissection of a fried fish head, this is a terrific set of lessons for introducing the atom and radioactivty.
The Dropping of the Atomic Bomb at Hiroshima and Nagasaki
Take an in-depth look at the historical events in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in this 69-slide PowerPoint. Photos, facts, and transcripts are outlined in this presentation in order to answer the stated essential question in slide 2: "What were Harry Truman's motivations for using the Atomic Bomb against Japan in World War II?" Note: This extensive slideshow will require at least an hour to get through with lecture and discussion.
