Element Cube Project
Model the configuration of electrons, protons, and neutrons of an element of their choice. You will also collect information about that element in the Periodic Table of Elements.

Assignment:
Construct a three dimensional model of an atom for an element of your choice. Show the correct number of protons, neutrons, and electrons in their orbital structure. Clearly label which are protons, neutrons, and electrons. They should be in different colors.

Collect data about your element. Construct a cube to present your material. Place information on the 6 sides following instructions.

Side 1: Name and symbol
Side 2 Images - what your element looks like
Side 3 Periodic Table information
type of element
period
name of family
group number
atomic number
atomic mass
Side 4 Physical and chemical properties of your element
color
density
 melting point
 flammability
odor
boiling point 
state of matter at room temperature
how reactive is it?
Side 5 History of your element
who first discovered or identified
what county
when
where it is found or how it can be obtained
Side 6 Uses of your element

Scoring
50 points for model
100 points each side - based on data accuracy, following instructions, overall neatness.
