Inspiring Science: Seventh Grade Periodic Table Challenge
Mr. Jennison recently asked seventh grade Chemistry students to create life-sized representations of the Periodic Table of Elements. The purposes of the project included: learning how to use resources to find information about an element of the Periodic Table; making a Fact Sheet and an “Element Square” for the assigned element; and creating a large scale periodic table as a class.
As part of the assignment, each class created and carried out a plan to make a large scale periodic table. Students took multiple elements and, in addition to the Periodic Table element “squares” that summarizes some important element details, they created an appropriate slogan and a "Fact Sheet" about the element.
The resulting walls filled with colorful and interesting Periodic Tables were inspiring to our entire on-campus community, from students to staff!
