In this project, students will be using the periodic table of elements to design their own name. You can even modify this to allow them to create a word that describes them, such as, "Inspire" or "Dream". With each element they will need to research specific requirements on that element to understand more about the history and usage.
In this project students learn more about the history of elements and their discovery. This activity helps students to understand more about why they are learning the periodic table.
This allows students to understand the periodic table on a more personal level, so they can relate to the concept. This is an extremely engaging activity for students.
