I would tell him to mark the distance of the electron from the nucleus every hour on a map of the area around us. After gathering some data just count the number of times electron have been in distance away from us. Then we can simply put number of times on the graph with respect to a distance,connect those points with a line and there we have it the distribution of electron positions. If we want an average number,just add all those distances with multiplying every distance by the counts electron was at that distance and divide by the numbers of all counts.
