The periodic table has long been a fixture on the classroom wall in many science classes but what does it tell us?  This project will show students that the elements are not only the building blocks of all life in the universeon but they also have many real world uses. Students will become aware of the periodic table as a powerful tool that organizes elements by their physical and chemical properties.  As we learn about the organization and history of the periodic table, students will research one specific element on their own.  Students will use this research to develop a power point presentation on the history, properties, and uses for their element.  Student projects will be compiled onto an interactive class periodic table that links all of the projects.
