I personally love the 5 E's plan. It helps me with adding variety in activities AND with pacing my lessons, which is especially important for block scheduling. When trying to plan 90 minutes and keep students engaged in lessons, this model has saved me.

5 Covers all bases
This sci-object is great. It provides many "CFU"s, ways that students bring in misconceptions, a variety of activities (simulations, hands-on activities, etc), and brings in the history of how the structure of the atom was discovered. Provides a lot of inspiration for developing lessons and helps to brush up on the concepts around atomic structure. I also really appreciated the beginning, where charges were explained before going into the specific atomic particles.
