Models of Chemical Families

A simple activity for introductory chemistry classes is thoroughly explained in this lesson plan. Each individual receives a sealed box containing an unknown object. Inquisitors use indirect evidence to draw conclusions. This activity is likened to the ways that chemists have come up with the current model of atomic structure. Use this as an anticipatory activity when introducing atoms to your general chemistry class.
