Students explore how critical discoveries shaped and modified modern atomic theory. They investigate how the first atomic theory was constructed, create their own atomic models of various elements, learning how to "build a nucleus" and fill electron orbitals, and perform a series of line spectral analyses, using flame tests and spectroscopes to observe several metallic salt compounds. Kit includes enough materials for at least 30 students working in groups.

  • Re-create the discoveries that led to modern atomic theory
  • Model atoms based on information from the periodic table
  • Perform spectral analysis
By "time-traveling" through history, students explore how critical discoveries shaped and modified modern atomic theory. In the first activity, students investigate how the first atomic theory was constructed and how subsequent discoveries of subatomic particles and their properties evolved into present theory. Then they create their own atomic models of various elements, learning how to "build a nucleus" and fill electron orbitals based on information from the periodic table. Finally, students perform a series of line spectral analyses, using flame tests and spectroscopes to observe several metallic salt compounds, and examine the utility of this application in identifying unknown substances. Kit includes enough materials for at least 30 students working in groups. Receive a FREE digital Teacher's Manual and Student Guide with kit purchase.

Inquiries in Science Series

Inquiries in Science® Series Kits

Inquiries in Science® is our exclusive series of hands-on kits specifically designed to help high school students understand abstract, hard-to-grasp science concepts. The series tracks well with most textbooks, and kit topics reflect state science standards and extensive educator input. Since Inquiries in Science® is modular, you can use the kits individually, as a strand, or as a series to teach biology, chemistry, and environmental science.


Improve Student Achievement

Field-tested in classrooms nationwide, Inquiries in Science® employs guided inquiry based on the 5E learning cycle of engage, explore, explain, extend, and evaluate. This inquiry-based approach also promotes STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) practices. It enables students to:

  • Consider a real-world question or problem
  • Plan and conduct an investigation and gather data
  • Understand the science concept by analyzing data and communicating findings
  • Apply their findings to the original real-world question or problem and master the science concept

Inquiries in Science® helps students build critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, and encourages creativity, collaboration, and teamwork. It creates an environment in which you and your students work together as active learners.

Disciplines and topics addressed by the kits were organized and selected based on data from numerous sources, including the National Research Council's National Science Education Standards, AAAS's Project 2061 Science Benchmarks, NAEP's Science Framework, and state science education standards from across the US. In addition, the Inquiries in Science® content and activities reflect the science practices and engineering practices, core ideas, and crosscutting concepts outlined by the National Research Council's A Framework for K–12 Science Education (2011) and the Next Generation Science Standards (2013).


Inquiries in Science® Components

  • Kit—Includes lab supplies (enough for at least 30 students working in groups) plus teacher's manual.
  • Kit Refill—Replenishes consumed materials
  • Multi Class Equipment Set—Includes extra lab supplies so you can use the kit in 1 additional class section per day. Note: You'll also need to order an extra kit refill for each additional class section. For example, to teach the same Inquiries in Science® kit in 3 biology sections on the same day, purchase 1 kit, 2 kit refills, and 2 multi class equipment sets.
  • Digital Teacher's Manual—FREE with kit purchase
