Create a custom Periodic Table with your class by using the Adopt an Element 2.0 project. Students will be assigned an element which they must research:
Basic atomic structure
Ionization Energies(1st and 2nd)
Electron configurations(Full and Abbreviated)
Bohr & Lewis Dot Electron Models
Uses in Society
This activity is designed for a HS Chemistry class beyond the basics of protons, neutrons and electrons. Students should have the background knowledge described above in order to successfully understand the information they collect.
After completing the project, students will engage in a scavenger hunt to uncover the Periodic Trends.
