This project is a great way to get students familiar with reading and using the period table. Generally for the younger grades I focus on elements from 1 - 20 and will use their representations as a "periodic table" bulletin board in my classroom. With the older grades I have them choose from a predetermined list of elements. I also add an extension on for older grades/ more advanced classes I have students create a bohr Rutherford or Lewis dot diagram for their particular element. Hope your students have just as much fun with this project as mine do!
