How to Draw an Atom Step by Step
Kids that love science, it’s time to draw an atom! Grab your pencil and eraser, let’s draw an atom! Follow this easy how to draw a wolf step by step tutorial and you will be drawing your own wolf drawings in no time.
The first step to drawing an atom is drawing an oval. This will give a general shape and structure of the atomic symbol.
Next, we will draw a similar oval, of the same size, but draw it slightly tilted to the right, so they don’t completely overlap.
Repeat step 2, but draw the oval tilted to the left this time. These ovals are our atom’s electron orbits, which is where the electron will move around.
To draw the nucleus of an atom, we’ll draw a small circle in the middle of our ovals. If you want to be more specific with your atom, draw the desired number of neutrons and number of protons to make up a specific element symbol. If not, you can leave it as it is.
It’s time to add the remaining electrons. Draw a few smaller circles spread around in the ovals.
Amazing job! Your atom drawing is all done. What element did you end up drawing?
