UNITS OF STUDY

Requirements below.

1. PERIODIC NAME:             You must use all available element symbols to assist in writing your name. If you cannot find a periodic symbol for a letter in your name you may write the letter in lower case. The project must be in ink and legible with a minimum of 3 colors, on paper no larger than half sheet of paper.                           

  1. ATOM MODEL:               A hand-made 3-D model to depict your specific element, with a label for identification. Your element should show the nucleus with its protons and neutrons and the energy levels with the electrons. In size, the model’s diameter may not exceed 30 inches. No Styrofoam or toxic material may be used. The label must include the element name, symbol, state of matter, atomic mass and atomic number, including the number of protons, electrons and neutrons.

3. PERIODIC ELEMENT:        You must use your personal information to create a unique element for a classroom periodic table.  The project must be in ink and legible with a minimum of 3 colors, on paper 5x6 inches. A format page is provided to be followed exactly for full credit.                                          

4. ELEMENT BROCHURE:        A tri-fold brochure, to include information required, in a neat and organized format. Information required includes, but not limited to when and who discovered the element, physical properties (melting/boiling), where the name comes from, where it is found, how is it mined or produced, how humans use it, how it combines with other elements, and any other interesting or important information. The research sheet is provided to assist with note taking for this project. The project must be in ink and legible with a minimum of 3 colors, on paper between 8!/2 x 11 to 11x18 inches only.
