Grade 5 Adopt An Element Project

For the Adopt An Element Project, students adopted an element from the periodic table. Students researched their element and created birth certificates as well as pictures of their element using Microsoft Paint. For the birth certificates, students listed the element name, the element nickname (symbol), weight (atomic weight), birthdate (date discovered), future career (uses of the element) and other details. For the drawings of elements, students used the number of protons, neutrons and electrons for the numbers of arms, legs and heads.
