PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The world is made of elements. We're not talking about earth, fire, wind, and water. REAL elements: oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon to name a few.

In this activity, students will create a diagram showing the distribution of elements in the 4 major parts of the world: ocean, atmosphere, crust, and living things. For each element, the percentage it makes of each domain is given. They are tasked with spreading that many dots in that area.

When complete, students will be able to see where the 8 most abundant elements are found and in what proportion. There will be 100 dots total in each domain, one for each percent. See the Preview for the completed product.

After completing the diagram, students will also use their diagrams to label a pie-chart foldable for each area.

Included is the student worksheet, an example key that can be displayed overhead, the front and back for the pie-chart foldable, and a Lesson Plan for the activity.

This activity is specifically designed to address the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) 6.5B: recognize that a limited number of the many known elements comprise the largest portion of solid Earth, living matter, oceans, and the atmosphere;
