Scale Model of an Atom

Unit 4: Atomic Structure
Lesson 5 of 5

Objective: Students will be exposed to the true scale of the interior of an atom using Goggle Maps as a means to show the distance between the proton and the electron.

Big Idea: Most texts depict the electron relatively close to the proton because that is what fits on a single page, the true scale is much larger, as seen in this Google Map.
