B. Use at least two sources from the internet to obtain your information and two other sources of information.
C. Information required:
HISTORICAL BACKGROUND- who, when, where, and how it was discovered.
PHYSICAL PROPERTIES- appearance, state, density, melting point, atomic radius, specific heat, abundance, and type.
CHEMICAL PROPERTIES- electronegativity, ionization energy, and reaction partners
PHOTOGRAPHS- images of objects containing the element and compounds that contain the element.
PERIODIC TABLE- location: group and period. ( image of periodic table may be used )
ELECTRON CONFIGURATION and LEWIS DOT STRUCTURE.
ELEMENT BLOCK- see poster layout
SOURCE- cite the internet sites used and two other resources ( use the proper citation form )
BOHR MODEL- label the nucleus, protons, neutrons, and electrons (electrons should be correctly distributed in the energy levels.)
Oral Presentation: Each student will summarize their findings
to their class.
