Requirements

This investigation follows the historical development of models of atomic structure and provides students with the opportunity to explore simulations of some of the experiments that led to these models. In addition, through hands-on activities involving representative objects, this investigation helps students gain insight into the size of atoms as compared with other small objects. This investigation helps build toward NGSS PEs: HS-PS1-1 and HS-PS1-3.
