Element Project Documents

Students will create a project that describes the behaviors of the elements.

END PRODUCT:

Children’s Storybook (Illustrations), Spoken Word (drawing), Script (movie), or Fakebook drama /process paper (fakebook platform)

All projects have both a writing and visual component, which integrate arts and communication throughout.  Students will be evaluated on creativity and incorporation of both the art and writing portion.

Checklist for students:

_ A bibliography of at least 3 scholarly sources

_ Incorporation of all essential vocabulary

_ Incorporation of periodic trends, organization, and general bonding ideas skillfully woven into project

_ Aesthetically well done

_ Both a writing and visual component complete and presentable

_ Peer evaluation complete

_ Presentation

_ Reflection

 

 

This covers the following standards:

Standard 9.2.1.1:

The structure of the atom determines chemical properties of elements.

Benchmark: 9.2.1.1.3 Periodic Table:

Explain the arrangement of the elements on the Periodic Table, including the relationships among elements in a given column or row.

 

Standard 9.2.1.2:

Chemical reactions involve the rearrangement of atoms as chemical bonds are broken and formed through transferring or sharing of electrons and the absorption or release of energy.

Benchmark: 9.2.1.2.1 Chemical Bonds:

Describe the role of valence electrons in the formation of chemical bonds.

 

 

Standard 9C.2.1.1:

The periodic table illustrates how patterns in the physical and chemical properties of elements are related to atomic structure.

Benchmark: 9C.2.1.1.1 Periodic Table & Atoms:

Explain the relationship of an element's position on the periodic table to its atomic number and electron configuration.

 

Benchmark: 9C.2.1.1.2 Trends in the Periodic Table:

Identify and compare trends on the periodic table, including reactivity and relative sizes of atoms and ions; use the trends to explain the properties of subgroups, including metals, non-metals, alkali metals, alkaline earth metals, halogens and noble gases.
