-Date Discovered and who or how it was discovered
-Graphic, picture or representation of the Element
-1-3 ways the element is used
-One piece of unique information about the Element (examples may be its electron configuration, diagram of it molecularly, special uses that we may not know about)

PS1.A: Structure and Properties of Matter- Each atom has a charged substructure consisting of a nucleus, which is made of protons and neutrons, surrounded by electrons. The periodic table orders elements horizontally by the number of protons in the atom’s nucleus and places those with similar chemical properties in columns. The repeating patterns of this table reflect patterns of outer electron states.
