Periodic Table Poster Assignment

Periodic Poster Project is designed as an introduction to the Periodic Table of Elements.This project enables students to identify and discover similarities and differences among the elements by using interactive periodic tables. Guidelines and worksheets are included in the each section to ensure timely student progress each day. Each student will be given an element to research. He/she will develop a poster for classroom presentation. Students will discover relationships among periodic table groups when they collaborate with other students who have been assigned elements in the same periodic family.

Introduction

Is it possible to put the entire universe on one sheet of paper? You betcha!!! How, you ask? Click HEREto see.

Wow! Wasn't that impressive? You have just seen all the building blocks from which EVERYTHING in the universe is created. Those 110 (and counting) elements, when combined together in numerous ways, create every substance know to mankind.

Get Organized, Baby!

Because this Periodic Table sure is! The Periodic Table (PT) is organized into four main regions.  These regions are called metals, nonmetals, metalloids, and Noble Gases. These regions are broken down even further into vertical columns called Groups or Families. Not only is the PT vertically organized, it's got it all together horizontally, too! The horizontal rows tell something about the atomic structure. What, you ask? Discover for yourself by visiting the websites below and completing the Get Organized, Baby worksheet provided by your teacher.

  • Element Word Search: Find the names of 40 common elements hidden vertically, horizontally, backwards, and diagonally in the word search puzzle.  Use the interactive Table of Elements or download a paper copy for reference.

http://education.jlab.org/beamsactivity/6thgrade/elementwordsearch/index.html

  • Periodic Table of Elements: A listing of all currently known elements through #118.  An interactive version of the Table of Elements as well as online element flashcard, element hangman, element matching, element concentration, and element games.

Targets & Objectives

Target TeKs

(4.A)  Scientific investigations and reasoning.

 (iii)  Scientific investigations are used to learn about the natural world. Students should understand that certain types of questions can be answered by investigations, and the methods, models, and conclusions built from these investigations change as new observations are made. Models of objects and events are tools for understanding the natural world and can show how systems work. Models have limitations and based on new discoveries are constantly being modified to more closely reflect the natural world.

(4.B)  Matter and energy.

(i)  Matter can be classified as elements, compounds, or mixtures. Students have already had experience with mixtures in Grade 5, so Grade 6 will concentrate on developing an understanding of elements and compounds. It is important that students learn the differences between elements and compounds based on observations, description of physical properties, and chemical reactions. Elements are represented by chemical symbols, while compounds are represented by chemical formulas. Subsequent grades will learn about the differences at the molecular and atomic level.

(ii)  Elements are classified as metals, nonmetals, and metalloids based on their physical properties. The elements are divided into three groups on the Periodic Table. Each different substance usually has a different density, so density can be used as an identifying property. Therefore, calculating density aids classification of substances.

(B.5.C) Differentiate between elements and compounds on the most basic level; and
