This project is technically aligned with a highschool physics standard, but I usually use this lesson during my “Matter and Its Interactions” Unit in middle school! I believe it allows students to become familiar with the periodic table, and it gives them
a visual of the structure of an atom. All of this prerequisite information helps my students grasp concepts when we start to get into molecules, physical/chemical changes, and thermal energy!
Implement this project after you introduce atoms and atomic structure! Check out my Atom, Molecules, and Matter Powerpoint and Guided Notes product if you need a lesson on this.
This purchase includes:
A Bohrs Model Practice Worksheet
The Worksheet answer key
Project write-up for the Bohr's Atom Model Project
Project grading rubric
Student sample project
Lesson plane/ implementation guide for your ease!
I hope you enjoy these lessons and happy teaching! :)
