ACTIVITIES AND KEYS LESSON 3

3.1 FILL IN

WATCH THE VIDEO AGAIN AND COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING STATEMENTS:

1. “Plum pudding is a kind of British thing so, if you’re American _________________________________________ to call this______________________________________”

2. Rutherford and his co-workers took a piece of gold foil and __________________________________

3. “What they shot were _______________________ that were ___________________________ that are much, much, much smaller than an __________________”

 

3.2 SPEAKING AND WRITING ACTIVITY

DURING THE EXPERIMENT, WHAT RUTHERFORD AND HIS CO-WORKERS NOTICED WAS AHUGE SURPRISE, THAT IS, THEY FOUND OUT THAT THE ALPHA PARTICLES TOOK DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS. LOOK AT THE PICTURE AND DESCRIBE THE DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS HIGHLIGHTING THE VERBS INDICATING THE TYPE OF MOVEMENT.

3.3 FILL IN THE GAPS WITH THE VERBS YOU’VE HIGHLIGHTED

1.       When the alpha particles don’t hit the nucleus they ______________________________ the atom

2.       If the alpha particles hits the hard dense nucleus or go close enough to be repelled by its charge, they _________________________________ or they _____________________________

 

3.4 SPEAKING ACTIVITY: WORK IN GROUPS OF THREE. LOOK AT THE PICTURE AND USE THE PREVIOUS ACTIVITY TO DESCRIBE WHAT RUTHERFORD AND HIS CO-WORKERS COULD SEE.

 

1.       __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

2.       __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

3.       __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

(A CURA DELLO STUDENTE)

3.1 FILL IN

WATCH THE VIDEO AGAIN AND COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING STATEMENTS:

1. “Plum pudding is a kind of British thing so, if you’re American it might be better to call this “blueberry muffin model”

2. Rutherford and his co-workers took a piece of gold foil and shot tiny little things at it

3. “What they shot were called alpha particles that were tiny positively charged things that are much, much, much smaller than an atom”.

3.2 A CURA DELLO STUDENTE

 

3.3 FILL IN THE GAPS WITH THE VERBS YOU HAVE HIGHLIGHTED

1.       When the alpha particles don’t hit the nucleus they go right through the atom.

2.       If the alpha particles hits the hard dense nucleus or go close enough to be repelled by its charge, they veer off or they bounce back.
