Element Baby Book Project
Procedure and Example
• In this project you will adopt an element from the
periodic table.
• As the proud new parent of your element, you
will create a baby book to remember each stage
of your element’s life.
• This counts as a project grade. Pay special
attention to the required details so you don’t
loose points.
• Some parts need to be done on the computer
and some by hand.
How and When?
• Introduction – Today
• Final Project due Date: Tuesday October 22
• You will be assigned an element from atomic
numbers 1-62.
• You will complete your research during class.
• Fill out the information needed for each part on your
handout before starting to assemble your book.
• Use the resources listed on your handout or
Google the element name.
– NO Wikipedia
• During this process remember to include:
– Color
