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.
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.
