Students learn about the elements by creating unique and accurate "driver's licenses" for elements on the periodic table. Students choose an element and research its name, symbol, density, properties, valence electrons, interesting facts, uses, etc.
My favorite part of this project is that once students complete them (either individually or in groups), the projects can be posted around the room to help students remember names and characteristics of elements for the rest of the year!
The included product includes:
-a thorough description of project requirements
-examples of facts and information students should research
-pictures of a "C level" and "A level" project.
-examples of "interesting facts"
-examples of "how to remember element name and characteristics"
This project is designed to be completed in 2-3 days, depending on how elaborate you would like to make the final products.
