Element Superhero OR Villian Project (Periodic Table - Research Project)
Element Superhero OR Villian Project I created this project to give my students a fun and engaging way to learn about physical and chemical properties of elements. Most element projects out there just mention superheroes. However, many elements align more with a villian than a superhero (like Chlorine!). I give my students creative freedom to fully personify one element on the periodic table into a superhero OR a villian.
The most common compound of chlorine, sodium chloride (common salt), has been known since ancient times. Around 1630 chlorine gas was first synthesized in a chemical reaction, but not recognized as a fundamentally important substance. Characterization of chlorine gas was made in 1774 by Carl Wilhelm Scheele, who supposed it to be an oxide of a new element. #Glogster #Chlorine
