Group Work - Google Doc

Instructions: After watching and listening carefully to the presentation, read with your group the pdf document about the discovery of each subatomic particle. Each member of a group should choose one atomic particle to study. Then, write about the atomic particle or structure you chose. Use the following questions to guide your reading:
1. Describe your particle (charge, location, relative mass, etc.)
2. Who discovered?
3. How was it discovered (describe the experiment)?
