Due Wednesday 8, 2014


Ms. Perez fnds the celn! n her room "ery #orn!. $he #ele"es that you
are creat"e enou!h to ma%e her celn! nterestn! so she has challen!ed you
to ma%e a "ery nce loo%n! &oster that she can &lace on her celn! that
sho's dfferent elements. (our jo# s to des!n a &oster for your chosen
element. (ou 'll ha"e to choose an element n the &erodc ta#le n an
nterestn! 'ay of Ms. Perez)s choosn!. (our &oster should contan the
follo'n! nformaton*
+rst, !"e a thorou!h descr&ton of the element*
the name of the element
the atomc num#er
the atomc mass
the chemcal sym#ol
a da!ram of the atom ,#e sure to nclude &rotons, neutrons, and
electrons-
chemcal.&hyscal &ro&ertes
/e0t, nclude 'here the element can #e found*
the &erod and !rou&.famly n 'hch t s found ,nclude !rou& name, f
a&&lca#le-
s t a metal, nonmetal, metallod, or no#le !as1
do some research and fnd out some uses of the element
E"en thou!h 'e 'll !o o"er ths nformaton later n more detal, 2 stll 'ant
you to nclude t for ths &roject.
3hallen!e yourself*
Who dsco"ered the element1
When 'as t dsco"ered1
Where 'as t dsco"ered1
or!n of name
4he &oster must #e, or!anzed, and contan all of the a#o"e nformaton. (ou
'll need to do some research on your element. 5ere are some resources*
htt&*..'''.'e#elements.com
htt&*..'''.chemcool.com
(ou may use other nternet sources, #ut ma%e sure they are
credta#le.
Ms. Perez has also ncluded a &erodc ta#le son! to hel& you 'th your
choce of elements. 2t)s also a "ery creat"e son! that sho's the
elements and 'hat they do.
Drectons for ma%n! an atomc model
$te& 1* +nd out the num#er of &rotons n an atom of your element. ,6 &rotons 7 atomc
num#er-
$te& 2* +nd the num#er of electrons. 8y defnton, atoms ha"e no o"erall electrcal char!e.
4hat means that there must #e a #alance #et'een the &ost"ely char!ed &rotons and the
ne!at"ely char!ed electrons. 9toms must ha"e e:ual num#ers of &rotons and electrons.
$ee the "deo ;m)s ho' to read the &erodc ta#le to hel& 'th ths.
4hen &lace electrons n ther shells*
$hell 1* 2 electrons
$hell 2*8 electrons
$hell <*18 electrons
$hell 4*<2 electrons
$hell =*<2 electrons
$hell >*18 electrons
$hell ?*8 electrons
$te& <* +nd the num#er of neutrons. 4he atomc 'e!ht s #ascally a measurement of the
total num#er of &artcles n an atom)s nucleus. 4o fnd the mass num#er, round the atomc
'e!ht to the ne0t 'hole num#er.
