In this unit the students will be introduced to the progress of the atomic theory. There are lessons and online you tube video that describe the atomic theory progress. An activity on how to explain the fact that electrons do not have specific orbit is suggested as an in class demonstration. There is a time line tool that is suggested for an online collaborative assignment.
