Students roll dice in order to simulate the probability of locating an electron in a certain region around the nucleus.
In this nucleus of an atom worksheet, students answer 19 multiple choice questions about the structure of the atom, radioactive decay, isotopes and half life.
Your host, Dr. Brian Cox, calls Ernest Rutherford the first proper particle physicist. He uses tennis balls to demonstrate what happened when Rutherford's students fired particles at a sheet of gold. Rutherford was able to deduce that most of an atom is actually made up of empty space. The clip concludes with actual footage of Rutherford making a statement about his discoveries.
Now, this is a clever approach to understanding cell organelles; seven pairs of organelles are listed, and pupils write an explanation of how each pair cooperates to perform certain cell functions. Organelles include the nucleus, ribosomes, endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi bodies, lysosomes, vesicles, and the cell membrane. Engage your young biologists' critical-thinking skills by assigning this as homework.
In this atom activity, students review the subatomic particles, the scientists associated with the atomic theory, and the periodic table. This activity has 15 matching, 24 fill in the blank, and 11 short answer questions.
Chemsitry aces learn that protons are located in the nucleus and the number of protons in the nucleus determines the atomic number of an element. In this lesson, they compare materials made up of a single element and other materials which have a difference of only one proton in their atomic nucleus. You can use this when introducing elements or comparing properties.
Using toothpicks, marshmallows, and round colored sticky dots, physical science enthusiasts build models of an atomic nucleus. In this eighth grade chemistry lesson plan, they play an atom-naming game with the models that they have constructed. This is an engaging and memorable way to impress atomic structure.
For this interactive Internet  assignment, physical science investigators answer 11 questions about the atom, the subatomic particles, and atomic structure. They can click on "Reveal Answer" to discover if they are correct. They also calculate the number of moles in a sample of iron and express the atomic mass and mass number using an algebraic expression. Assign this as homework for reviewing atomic structure with upper elementary or middle school learners.
Young scholars use analogies to show the relationships among cell, nucleus, genes, chromosome, ribosome, replication, mitosis, transcription, translation, DNA, RNA, amino acids and proteins, genotype, phenotype, and genetics vs. environmental causes of cell defects.
Fifth graders search into animal and cell characteristics and their functions in this seven lesson unit. Replicas of the cell are constructed out of Jell-O as students probe the internet for details of the concepts.
Atoms make up everything, and here is almost everything a beginning chemist needs to know about them! By viewing this set of slides, pupils learn about atom structure down to the level of quarks. They see a variety of atomic structure models. The periodic table of elements is introduced. Ions,  isotopes, compounds, mixtures, and molecules are defined. You may or may not want to include the final few slides about dark matter and dark energy. But all in all, this is a straightforward and concise introduction to the atom.
For this atomic theory worksheet, students review the observations that led to the conclusion of the atom having a positively charged nucleus. Students compare atomic number and mass number and explain how the discovery of subatomic particles and isotopes affected Dalton's atomic theory. This worksheet has 9 problems to solve.
In this atom worksheet, students fill in 8 blanks with the appropriate terms, they determine if 4 statements are true or false, they match 5 terms with their meanings and they answer 3 questions related to the structure of the atom. Topics include subatomic particles and Rutherford's model.
Students study the particles of which atoms are made. They define the electron, proton, and neutron and their attributes.
In this biology worksheet, students respond to 13 multiple choice questions related to cell structure and function. They identify which are microfilamets and which have a cell wall. Students also describe what chloroplasts are and their activity.
In this cells worksheet, students read and choose the multiple choice answers to 20 questions involving cells, microscopes, and the life process of Growth.
Learners identify via slides prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. They identify plant or animal cells from slides or pictures. Students are given the question of the day. They are asked which has a nucleus, a prokaryotic or eukaryotic cell?
In this DNA activity, students describe how the cell stores all of the data needed to produce the required proteins for the body. Then they describe the ribosomes division and how is attaches itself to RNA and makes protein by forming peptide bonds between amino acids.
Students work in groups to create a new head of the cell to take over for the nucleus.  In this cell  lesson students produce a campaign that will show the importance of the organelle to the cell.
Learners state the three parts of cell theory. They identify the roles of the nucleus and cell membrane. They take notes from the overhead on cell theory. They answer true/false questions about cell theory.
