Students investigate relative mass using 8 different items. In this relative masses lesson plan, students discuss as a class John Dalton's atomic theory. They take the masses of the 8 items and record their data. They discuss relative mass as a class and they determine a standard within their 8 items. They calculate the relative mass of each item using the standard. Students complete an experiment about the relative masses of atoms.
