Atomic Model Timeline To help you piece together the story of what we know about the “atom”, you will be creating a timeline depicting the development of the scientific model of the atom. It has been through new discoveries by philosophers and scientists in physics, as well as chemistry, that the model of the atom has expanded and changed over time. Your assignment is to research the major contributors and significant discoveries that have impacted the atomic model and, from this material, develop a timeline. Your timeline MUST: 1. Include AT LEAST the following scientists/groups: o Alchemists, Albert Einstein o Aristotle and fellow Greeks, Geiger o Becquerel, Robert Millikan o Neils Bohr, Murray Gell-Mann and George Zweig o Chadwick, Lavoisier o Coulomb, Max Planck o Crookes, Ernest Rutherford o The Curies, Erwin Schrödinger o John Dalton, JJ Thomson

Include the following pictorial models of the atom: o Indivisible, solid sphere model o Electron cloud model o Planetary or Solar System model o Plum pudding (blueberry muffin) model o Rutherford’s Nuclear atom 3. Be chronological in its sequence, with the dates CLEARLY shown (it need not be to scale.) 4. Contain, through pictures and/or explanations the significant contributions and experiments of those scientist and atomic models listed above. 5. Be neat and legible. 6. be larger than 8.5 x 11 inch size Your timeline is due on _______________________ You do not have to follow the typical horizontal timeline format; you may be creative and use any format you wish.
