When we were learning about atoms yesterday. I remember Mr. Calvert saying that as much as you cut a grapefruit in half, and in half again, and again and again, you would never be able to find the atom and see it with your bare eyes. If you wanted to see the atom with your bare eyes, you have to make the grapefruit the size of the Earth! And guess how big the atom is……….. The size of a blueberry. 😮 I was so amazed by that. I already knew that atoms are really really really small, but I didn’t think that if you made a grapefruit the size of the Earth, the atom would only be the size of a blueberry!
I’m still really amazed.
