On the right hand side of the page you will find excellent links to online periodic tables that are full of information. This is the best way to start. Please do not 'google' your element unless you have tried all the links and books that are provided.
Your primary focus should be getting the information for the fact sheet first. If you would like to download the form and type it - check HERE. (Looks like it is not up yet, but it will be up soon!) Then you want to work on your campaign poster, button and/or bumper sticker. The requirements are outlined below.
Campaign Posters should be neatly done and include the symbol, name, atomic number, and the mass number for your element. They should be in color because color is more eye-catching. They may either be hand-drawn or done on a computer, but the work needs to be done by only you. Campaign posters should be the same size as a regular sheet of paper (8½” x 11”).
CAMPAIGN BUTTON or BUMPER STICKER DESIGNS
Campaign buttons and/or stickers must include the name or symbol of your element and a campaign slogan. Your slogan should be more creative than “Gold for President!” The cheesier the better. Again, color is more eye-catching. They may either be hand-drawn or done on a computer, but the work needs to be done by only you.
Campaigns and elections will be held on March 31, 2010
5 points will be deducted every day that your project is late and you may be disqualified from the campaign. You will be given some time in the computer lab to do research, and some time in the classroom. Additional work will need to be completed outside of class.
