Models of Atom Flip Book by cuiliqing


									                  The Six Historical Models of the Atom

The Task

Your goal in completing this project is to create a flipbook, displaying the six
historical models of the atom. You will be in groups of three with the following roles:

The artist: Responsible for creating representations of the models

The scientist: Responsible for describing each model

The editor: Responsible for ensuring clarity and organization

The Process

1. Fold 4 pieces of paper vertically

2. Staple the folded side to make a book.

3. Label the top of each section with the name of the model

                                Models to include are:

                          -Democritus (460 B.C. - 370 B.C)

                                -Dalton (Early 1800's)

                                   -Thomson (1906)

                                  -Rutherford (1910)

                                       -Bohr (1922)

                                -Electron Cloud (today)

4. You should use both sides of the open booklet for each model.

5. For each model, include a picture or representation of the model.

6. For each model, describe it using at least three facts.

7. On the last page, write a conclusion paragraph in which you talk about why it is
important to understand the models of the atoms in your study of chemistry.

8. You should make your flip book look attractive. Markers, glue, etc. will be
available for you to use.


Your book is one good resource, and in addition you can use these web sites:
