What Is Inside the Atom?

This What Is Inside the Atom? lesson plan also includes:

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.
