Element Baby Book Project
In this project you will adopt an element from the periodic table. Your element is ARGON
As a proud parent of your element, you will create a baby book to remember each stage of your baby’s (element’s) life.
This project will count as 200 points. I will give you time during your Research class to research your element and some class time to work on your book.
All information must be typed; however, this is a hands-on project so you must use creativity, color and pictures when putting your baby book together. You may create your own book using construction paper or use an actual photo album but it is not necessary.
Use https://www.chemicool.com/ to help you complete your project.
