This is a great way to introduce elements and the periodic table. Your students will complete research on an element and then build a 3 dimensional cube full of the information. When complete, you can build a complete or partial periodic table.
These cubes become great conversation pieces as students look for patterns on the periodic table and explore different types of compounds.
Added BONUS, you end up with extra Tissue boxes!!!
I end up with sooooo many, I share them with my neighbors. I love seeing the science tidbits in the other classrooms in my hall.
