This term in Science the Year 8 students have been studying chemistry. So far, we have learnt about atoms, subatomic particles, the arrangement of elements on the periodic table and their symbols. For our assessment we all researched information about a different element and then got to show our creativity through an infographic poster and model representing various properties and uses of our elements. For example, students created a model battery for the element lithium (Li), a sword to highlight the properties of iron (Fe), a caesium (Cs) atomic clock, a neon (Ne) sign and even a bromine (Br) swimming pool just to name a few. This topic and task have truly allowed us to be creative and expand, and share our knowledge with our classmates. We have taken so much out of it!
