Lesson Overview

Learn about the chemical elements.

Collaborate with classmates to create your own Periodic Table of Elements using illustrated typography.

Start by researching your element and brainstorming ways to communicate what it does through illustration. Once you’ve completed your design, print and create a class display of your very own Periodic Table so you can share what you’ve learned with one another.

Educational Value
