Hooray!  You did such a good job on the first glogster assignment, your teachers have decided to give you another one.

Each student will be given ONE element from the periodic table.  Your task is to produce a glogster poster with information about that element.  The kinds of things to include are:

atomic structure, mass number, uses, reactivity, state, colour, etc

Remember to include pictures and images as well as text.

We will put up your posters in the shape of the periodic table outside room 1090/1091.  We’ll use the same rubric as last time to assess this.
