  • 1. Element Project (100 Points) 1. 2. 3. Look at the periodic table in your book. Choose an element that seems interesting to you. DON’T pick an element in the lanthanides (atomic numbers 58-71) or the actinides (atomic numbers 90-103). Tell me the element. If another student already picked it, you will have to pick another. Pick any element from here Don’t choose a lanthanide or actinide
  • 2. Project Card 4. Make a square card to put your project on. The card MUST be 21 cm by 21 cm. To do this, take a sheet of normal A4 paper, and cut about 8.7 cm off from the bottom. You can use future board, or any material you want, just make sure it is 21cm x 21cm……. Square card 21 cm for project A4 Paper Cut off 8.7 cm 21 cm 5. Draw or paste pictures onto your card. The drawing or pictures should be something about the element! Figure out what your element is used in. For example, they fill balloons with helium. So, if your element was helium, you could draw balloons on your card. Make your card stand out, your grade will depend on it.

  • 3. What is Your Element Like? 6. Research your element! Information that MUST be on your card: • Element name • Element symbol (e.g., “Na” for sodium) • Atomic number (=number of protons) • Atomic weight • Melting point • Boiling point • Density • Number of isotopes • The state • Color • Valence Electron orbital configuration • Interesting facts (who discovered it, what it is used for……) • Write your name, class number and class on the card! 7. Finally, put your element card on the wall in room 8/2. We will make one giant periodic table on the back wall in room 8/2. Make sure you put your element card in the right spot.
  • 4. When we are finished, it will look something like this…… Project DUE: Must be on wall in 8/2 on Friday, November 22nd (scout camp? Will accept on Monday 25th)
