It seemed pretty straight forward now that we know how elements are organized on the periodic table and how to write down information about it.
We thought that this project was fairly straight forward. We knew a bit about the elements and learned more while doing this project.
Things went good except we couldn't find all the colours for the flame test. And everything looks shiny! 😭😂😁😘
Everything went well. :) the colours for flame test couldn't be found though :p so we just randomly put the ones left some where. The project was pretty straightforward and simple.
This project was fairly easy we found all of our information for the assignments and enjoyed learning about chemical reactions.
We thought that this project was pretty easy and straightforward, and we haven't experienced any major problems.
The grid was a very simple project to do. It challenges you taking your knowledge about the periodic table and rearrange the parts of the grid to make it correct.
Everything went good and we learned how elements fit with other elements and how they work together to form something else for an example sodium and chlorine when they are put together the form table salt, but them alone they will burn a hole in your hand and could kill you
The dating profiles were a bit of a challenge at first, but we now understand it. It has challenged us with our basic knowledge about chemistry
It was an easy assignment but we didn't really know what to do at first. We could have used more time:) Our group still doesnt really understand the elements because it was kind of confusing.
Making the art was fun to do. It was a little annoying making 5 pieces of art for each person but we still go t it done. While we made the pieces of art, we learned what the elements can take form of.
During science today me and my group worked on finishing up our project! For example our dating profile project! It was fun to do but it had its challenges. But nothing we couldn't overcome by working together as a team. We started working on the sort and predict activity. We are close to being finished! Things go faster if you work together as a team!
This project was easy,fun and a great way to learn. We would like to do it again for something else someday!
The sort and predict was really easy and fun to do. We all liked it. It was a fast way to learn about all of the elements.
The teacher demonstration is awesome because you can watch some elements light on fire and see the different colours of flames.
The teacher demonstration was really great to watch. It was good because we actually got to see what happened to the elements and what they were like in real life instead of just hearing about it.
The assignment was a quick and easy way to learn about the elements, and was not a very difficult. We were a little bit pressed for time, but we finished within the time frame. I think we all agree that it was a fun assignment.
We learnt a lot about how the periodic table works and it was actually pretty fun. We also learnt which elements react or like other elements.
We worked as a team to figure it out and finished it in a little over a half an hour. We think this would be a fun thing to do again.
The Fact that we got to watch the presentation with the different elements really helped us figure out the sodium lithium, and potassium for the sort and predict. It would have been better if everybody contributed instead of one person going of and finishing an old project.
It was alright. We just learnt a lot about four elements instead of 20.
We learned a lot of things about the elements and their information. Zinc and Aluminum look a lot alike when he showed us a sample of them. Nickel was really hard to bend. Copper is called copper because of its coppery colour. Lead was really easy to bend and it wasn't shiny and metallic like the others. It was sort of a dull dark gray. Lithium, sodium and potassium are all reactive to water but in different ways. Lithium bubbles, smokes and slowly disappears. Sodium doesn't bubble, it does smoke and it slowly disappears. Potassium sparks and has blue flames and only lasts a short while before disappearing. And these are just some of the things we learned.
Zinc is a metal that is hard to bend, its atomic mass is 65.38. Nickel is a metal that is also hard to bend and its atomic mass is 58.69. Copper is coppery metal that is easy to bend. It's atomic mass is 63.55. Lead is a metal that is extremely easy to bend and its atomic mass is 207.2. Aluminum is a metal that's harder to bend and its atomic mass is 26.98. Lithium is a very malleable metal that is a dark grey colour until it is cut. Then it becomes quite shiny. It's reactive with water-it sort of "dances"on the water. Sodium is also reactive with water- it "dances" on the water and produces some smoke. Potassium is the most malleable out of the three and is thermally conductive.
Copper was extremely malleable like paper. While aluminum was not malleable. Zinc is also metallic. Nickel is a dull element. Lead is a fairly heavy element. Potassium burned and started flameing with the water. Sodium smoked a lot with no bubbles. While lithium sizzles in the water with bubbles.
We learned a lot about the first 20 elements and their characteristics while doing this project.
I thought this was pretty cool and learned quite a bit. I thought that the dating profiles was a fun activity.
I did research and filling in questions and helping the group with answers
