ELEMENT PROJECT NAME _________________________ Name of Element _______________________ Your element project will consist of two (2) parts: 1. A typed 3-4 page report answering specific questions about your element 2. A visual project of your element. Paper Requirements - It MUST be typed and in your own words. The typed potion of your project must be written in paragraph form. Page 1: Title page – Your name, element, date and class number Page 2-3: The following information MUST be included: Periodic Table Information: element name, symbol, atomic number, mass number History – When it was discovered? By whom? Early uses – ex. As a weapon, coins, building materials Family/Group and Period – is it a part of a special collection of elements? Number of protons, neutrons, electrons Properties or characteristics – state, density, boiling point, isotopes, melting point, reactivity, metal, manmade or natural, acid or base, crystal structure, etc. Practical uses today – weapon, jewelry, raw materials for production, food, medicine Where it is commonly found on Earth (geographic location). NOTE: Feel free to include any additional information you find interesting. Some elements will have more information than others. Page 4 Bibliography section – Must use / site a minimum of three (3) sources for paper using format from English class. Visual Project Requirements (Must do one (1) of the following A, B, C) A. Power Point Presentation Slide 1 Title (element), Your name, Period 0 points Slide 2 Element box 10 points Slide 3 Electron Configuration 20 points Slide 4 Discovery/Early History/Uses 20 points Slide 5 Physical and Chemical Properties 20 points Slide 6 Youtube video (longer than 1 min no longer than 5 mins) 20 Points Slide 7 References 10 Points NOTE : See me for power point examples. B. One dimensional model of an atom of your element 1. A poster no smaller than ½ of a poster board and not larger than a full size poster board. 2. Label the poster with the element name, symbol, atomic mass and atomic number. 3. Draw an atom of the element and label the parts. You must have the correct number of protons, neutrons and electrons. Make a color key for each. C. Three (3) dimensional model of an atom of your element 1. Size will depend on the element 2. Design the model using your imagination and ideas. 3. Use colors to distinguish between protons, neutrons and electrons. 4. Attach an index card with the element name, atomic mass, atomic number and symbol.
