Atomic Models

The Atomic Models Concept Builder is a Matching Pairs activity that challenges learners to make associations between terms. There are four different activities, each having a different emphasis. In the first activity - Scientists and Models - learners associate the name of a scientist with the name of the atomic model that they developed. In the second activity - Discoveries and Models - learners associate a specific discovery or experiment with a description of a model that the finding led to. In the third activity - Electrons and Models - learners associate the name of a model with a description of what the model uniquely proposes about the electron. And in the fourth activity - Diagrams and Models - learners associate a pictoral representation of a model with the name of the model. In order to complete any of the activities, learners must successfully associate four pairs of ideas. Help is provided for each activity. Progress on the activity is recorded for those who are using a Task Tracker account
