In addition to our discussion, each student was given a packet to complete and two elements to detail. From those two elements, students are expected to choose one and reply to this post with information regarding the following:
- It's discovery and history.
- Significant properties
shared with elements in the same family
shared with elements in the same group (could be identical to family)
unique individual properties
- Interesting and/or historical and current uses
- Any surprising facts
The packet is due by Wednesday October 17th. Students are expected to post their findings for their element research as a reply to this blog entry by Thursday October 18th. Below is another copy of the assignment if needed.
Please contact me if there is need for clarity or assistance.
