Students will be working in pairs to research and create a superhero to represent one of the elements from the periodic table. Students will sign up so that none are repeated. Each pair will create a two page spread with pictures and text to describe their superhero. The superhero must incorporate the physical and chemical properties of that element. The two pages must fit together side by side because all student pages will be assembled to create a book. This book will be displayed in the library.
Specific details will be given in a handout to students. All research notes from the internet must be recorded on pages provided. Both students must show their completed work before the library period in class, this is to ensure both students complete work. Sources must include print as well as electronic resources.
Students will be provided with: Handout, Evaluation Sheet, Note-taking Sheets
