CMS students study the periodic table

Campbellsville Middle School eighth-graders are studying the periodic table.

 

In Amy Knifley’s science classes, students are learning all about the different elements on the periodic table.

 

As a culminating project for their unit, students were asked to make an element box.

 

Students chose an element, and they researched it. When all their materials were gathered, students made boxes to showcase their elements.

 

The boxes contained the element’s name, atomic number, symbol and atomic mass. Students also included five interesting facts about the element, along with photos of it, and then presented their box to their classmates.

 

Once all elements were chosen, the boxes were hung up to create a periodic table.
