After introducing the periodic table of elements to your students, try this fun, creative and artistic activity!
Students will pick their favorite element from the periodic table. They will be asked to do the following: create the atomic drawing of their element, give five facts about their element, write a description of their superhero (including powers and weaknesses), and draw a full-body drawing of their superhero.
Give students time to work on this in class and provide books or laptops for students to conduct research on their elements. I would recommend assigning the project over a long-weekend.
Glue the final products onto colored poster paper to be presented or hung in the hallway. Great for conferences!
