I love this lesson. It gives a step by step method on what to do in the classroom and how to get students involved in the activity. This is a great way for students to learn the periodic table.

A great activity to get kids writing more in science while learning about elements, their importance, and which category they belong in.

A really good activity to get students to do some research on an element and think about how it's used in the real world. It has a nice combination of tasks for the students to learn and have fun.

This looks like a super fun time that allows students to express their creativity and also encourages writing across the curriculum.

I'm a fan of projects that encompass several parts and relate the material to different subjects. This project not only helps the students understand an element and its various uses, but also its effect on economy, history, and humanity.
