Periodic Table Tournament Challenge

Students and Parents,

Assignment: Create a FIVE SLIDE presentation which explains why the element assigned to you is IMPORTANT.  Each slide can have no more than TWENTY WORDS on it, and - as always - we will have plenty of time to work on these in class.

Suggestions as to what each slide could contain:

1. Some objects that are made from your element.
2. Some ways that your element is used
3. The Atomic Number, Symbol, and Mass of your Element
4. A famous use of your element
5. A photo showing your element in action
6. A sketch of your element
7. Some “properties” of your element
8. Whether your element is a solid, liquid, or a gas.
9. Some compounds made with your element.  For example Sodium (Na) and Chlorine (Cl) combine to make Table Salt (NaCl).

An example template will be shown in class as to what a finish slide presentation could look like.

You might be asking: if we’re working on these in class, what can I do at home?  Don’t forget: any research that you do (online, in a book, at the library, etc) can always be brought to school.  You can also login to your Google Drive at home to access your stuff there.  Head to OR while at home.  Login with your school email address and password.  Ta-da!  You’re in!

Once the presentations are completed, they’re going to be entered in a bracket (similar to the NCAA Tournament).  It’s going to be a TON of fun!

You can view the bracket by going to

Any questions?  Send me an email at OR write me here at the school.
