Activities Total ________    Quiz __________    B – Layer _________    A- Layer ____________

B Layer ( Choose ONE – 15 Points)

1.  Make a display of samples or pictures of several (4 or more different) elements.  List the name, symbol, atomic number, average atomic mass, diagram of atom, several uses for each element, and other information you find.
2.  Choose a synthetic element and write a biography of the element.  Include information about the element’s name, location of the synthesis research, and the people responsible.
3.  Research and report on models of the atom from the time of the ancient Greeks until the present. ( You may make a poster or display of the information.)
4.  Make a web page, powerpoint presentation or 3-D bulletin board to teach others about the atom, atomic structure and the periodic table.
5.  Select group 1, Group 2, Group 17 or Group 18.  Find out the properties and uses of the elements in the group and determine what the elements have in common.  Prepare a poster or presentation that shows what was learned so that the information can be shared with the rest of the class.
6.  Research and make a timeline that shows the development of the modern atomic thory, identifying on the timeline the contributions of key physicists and chemists. Include information about other events in history that happened around these key dates.  Create the timeline on a poster.
