For our final project for the year, students will be investigating the periodic table. Students will be studying the periodic table by focusing on finding the following information about each element:
- Periodic Table information
- Number of protons, neutrons, and electrons
- Discovery information (person and date
- Important uses
- Pictures that illustrate one or more uses for the element (on the back)
Each student will place these elements onto a trading card, just like the one pictured above. The idea is to create a card, just like a baseball card, that has a picture on one side and stats about the element on the other. After all our research is done, students will swap cards to retrieve information from one another to fill in their black periodic table that I have given them.
