Homework: 
Continue with the element diagrams.  You will have a quiz on Thursday.

Today in class: 

1.  Complete the Adopt an Element Project.  It will need to be stored in your locker until after science PSSA testing when we can hang it in the room.

2.  Cut out the elements on the work sheet and without using a periodic table, use the information to construct your own table.  Element "x" "y" and "z" need to be placed on the table and additional information needs written in the square as well.  You may use a piece of construction paper and glue.

3.  For more of a challenge, ask for worksheet 53T.  This table does not require you to fill in any missing information, but will have a gap in it.

4.  If you finish both projects, you may continue working on your 100 diagrams.  Extra sheets are available in the front of the room.

Homework: 
Study your notes

Today in class: 

Adopt an Element Project:
1.  Elements are chosen randomly.
2.  The organization and color coding will follow the periodic table found on page 108-109 in the textbook.
3.  A hand-written summary of your element will be pasted on to the back of your card with glue.  It needs to include:
Who discovered it,
Where it was discovered,
Where it is found today,
What it is used for today
Other interesting facts
4.  The electron configuration must be completed in the same color as the information card.  Use an orange compass to measure a 2 inch diameter circle for the nucleus.  A 3 inch diameter circle will be used for the first shell.  A 4 inch diameter circle will be used for the second shell and each shell thereafter will be an additional inch in diameter.
5.  Your configuration diagram will need to be two sided because of how it will be hanging below your information card.
