Poster/Element Demonstration Project
Periodic Poster Project is designed as an introduction to the Periodic Table of Elements.This project enables students to identify and discover similarities and differences among the elements by using interactive periodic tables. Guidelines and worksheets are included in the each section to ensure timely student progress each day. Each student will be given an element to research. He/she will develop a poster for classroom presentation. Students will discover relationships among periodic table groups when they collaborate with other students who have been assigned elements in the same periodic family.
Is it possible to put the entire universe on one sheet of paper? You betcha!!! How, you ask? Click HERE to see.
Wow! Wasn't that impressive? You have just seen all the building blocks from which EVERYTHING in the universe is created. Those 110 (and counting) elements, when combined together in numerous ways, create every substance know to mankind.
Get Organized, Baby!
Because this Periodic Table sure is! The
Periodic Table (PT) is organized into four main regions.
These regions are called metals, nonmetals, metalloids, and Noble
Gases. These regions are broken down even further into vertical
columns called Groups or Families. Not only is the PT vertically
organized, it's got it all together horizontally, too! The
horizontal rows tell something about the atomic structure. What,
you ask? Discover for yourself by visiting the websites below and
completing the Get Organized, Baby worksheet provided by your
