This Periodic Table Project uses technology to explore and teach the properties of and trends within representative groups of elements on the periodic table. Students are assigned an individual element to research and represent throughout the class's study of the periodic table. Students then collaborate with other students whose elements are in their "element family" to create a fully digital presentation about the properties, trends, and uses of elements in their representative group.
