Introduction: 
The Periodic Table of the elements is an internationally useful tool for scientists and chemists.  It was originally devised by Dmitri Mendeleev in 1871 and is still in use today.  There are 92 naturally occurring elements on Earth and 116 elements in total listed on the table.  Each element differs from others only in the number of protons in the nucleus, these protons determine many of the physical and chemical properties of each element.  Every single substance made of matter on the Earth, and in the Universe as far as we know, is made from some combination of these elements.  Each substance has its own particular and special recipe.  You, your computer, the Earth and the sky above you are all made from this same simple list of ingredients. 

The Task:
The challenge is for the members of Science Team Franklin to create links to pages with specific information about each element on the Periodic Table.  Using the Pages App on your I-pads, you'll create a mini poster which we'll link to each of the symbols in the table above. 

Each member of Science Team Franklin will randomly select two elements from the "Amazing Scientific Hat of Chance". 
They are then tasked with creating a separate Pages Document about each element, containing the information listed below.

Each poster must include the following information:  Element's Name,  Element's Symbol, Atomic Number, Atomic Mass, Common and/or industrial uses for the element, Date of discovery, Who discovered the Element, Other Brief yet Interesting facts about the Element such as its physical and chemical properties, and an image of the element, or of something made of the element. 

Science Team Franklin members may use any method of research that they have available including:
A very nice Periodic Table
The Periodic Table of Videos
Try the Periodic Table feature on the Nova Elements App
Also try the Periodic Table App on your I pad.
