Adopt-An-Element

Requirements:
1. Create a 3D model of the atomic structure of your assigned element. (50%)
The model should include a nucleus containing protons and neutrons, and electrons in orbit.
Your model should be free-standing or be able to hang. Be creative in your use of materials for
the model. Attach to your model an index card with the following information:

Your Name and Block


Element Name, Element Symbol
Atomic Number
Atomic Mass
# of protons, # of electrons, # of neutrons
Key for the protons, neutrons, and electrons in your model.

2. Complete an Adopt An Element information sheet for the same assigned element.
(50%)
You may use a variety of reference sources. Possible ideas are encyclopedias, science
encyclopedias, science catalogues, magazines, and or Internet sites*. Information sheets must
be neat, written or typed in black ink, and contain all the information requested. You also need
to provide a list of your sources on the back of your information sheet. A minimum of three
sources are required.
