Chemical Element Poster Project

									                                         Chemical Element Poster Project!
                                            Due Monday, October 25

You have been assigned an element from the periodic table to research. You will create a “Wanted” poster to
display your element. Your posted will include the reader with clues to help them locate your element on the table.
In order to research your element, you may use the web, library books, and your textbook to gather information on
your element. Facts may be written into sentences or listed as bullet points.
Use the graphic organizer to gather your information then transfer the information NEATLY to your poster.
                            A useful website to start with is:

Your poster must include:
· A WANTED title (like the posters hanging up in the Post Office)
· Your name
· Element’s name
· Chemical symbol
· Atomic number
· Atomic mass
· Number of isotopes
· Metal, nonmetal, or metalloid
· Chemical state (solid, liquid, or gas)
· Picture of the nucleus (for large nuclei, you may write the numbers of protons & neutrons rather than
  drawing them)
· Period
· Group/Family
· Similar elements in its group/family
· 2-3 color pictures of objects that contain your element (ex. silver jewelry for silver, thermometer for mercury)
· Uses for your element (everyday, industrial etc.)
· Additional physical or chemical characteristics (color, odor, reactivty etc.)
· 2-3 Interesting facts
· The copy of the periodic table with your element’s box shaded in

 You will have due dates along the way worth 1 point each (13 points total). This counts toward your final grade!

  You will present your poster to the class starting on Monday, October 25. Your presentation must demonstrate
               element knowledge and include eye-contact. You may have notecards to help you.

                  Here is a picture of what your element poster will resemble when it’s complete:

                   * Element Project Extra Credit Opportunity *
Often times when you are working on a project at home, you end up with
some questions that you don’t know the answer too. You are encouraged to
post your questions to your homeroom’s blog on my website. That way I, or
other students in your class can help you!

You may also come across a really beneficial website or book that you think
would help other students in your class. You can also post that information
to your homeroom blog as well.

Please do not post personal facts about your project on the blog. Save those
for class.

To earn 5 bonus points on your element project, you must post to the blog a
minimum of 5 times. Please be sure to read all previous posts on the blog so
that you don’t repeat information. You will only receive credit for “original”
ideas and posts. Not repeats.

Please be sure to only post to YOUR homeroom’s blog.

                      The extra credit is worth 5 points!
