Extensions / Additional Activities


3-D Model
    Each individual will create a  3-dimensional model of their element. All the individual models will be displayed on     the wall or hung as a mobile. Students may also design a poster that gives more information about their element or  even print up their website and/or Power Point to display.
 
 
Patchwork Quilt
    Each individual will create a section for a patchwork quilt, made of art paper.  Each section will portray something that is representative of the student's element, or just simply the letter symbol.  All the individual sections will be stapled together, perhaps with all the other non-selected elements in a "periodic table quilt".  It will have, in the  center, a teacher created central patch that states a unifying theme.
 
 
Self-Evaluarion Composition

     Students are encouraged to write an essay on what they learned by doing this project.
