I decided to develop 2 lesson plans that focused on 2 "Big Ideas" in Nanoscale Science: Size and Scale, and Structure of Matter.
Size and Scale Lesson
This lesson was developed based on a lesson from NanoSense, Nanooze Readings, and Nova's Making Stuff :Smaller Program. Click on the lesson plan for more information.
