Element Baby Book

Final Project Due: Thursday, June 5th

In this project you will adopt an element from the periodic table. The element that you choose must have an atomic number from 1 – 20; 31-38. As a proud parent of your element you will create a baby book to remember each stage of your element’s life.

This project will count as one summative assessment grade in science.
