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. This clever assignment familiarizes learners with the work of Dalton, Rutherford, Bohr, and others.
- A fresh alternative to simply lecturing on atomic theory, or a reinforcing assignment to follow it
- Neatly formatted, including pictures of each scientist
- Integrates history and language arts research skills with scientific concepts
