Each student receives an element from the Periodic Table. You can have them choose from a hat or select one of their choice. It's best if no one in the class has the same element.
They complete the Atoms Worksheet on it, finding all the basic information on the element, including a brief history. I give them one hour in the library and the rest is homework. They then put all of the information on a t-shirt and wear it to school!
Included is the project intro, the project worksheet and a rubric.
