Periodic Table Element Superhero Project by Miss Middle School Teacher ~ This project incorporates research skills, creativity, and a chance for students to express original ideas. I use this with middle school students to teach elements on the periodic table. Students choose one element to research and turn into a superhero or super-villain! I usually have them create a final product on poster board, but you could also have them present their research in a different format. This product includes student directions, grading rubric, credible sources note taking page, and a student planning sheet.
