Welcome, scientists!  You have been invited to participate in the Element of the Year Awards.

Your assignment is to select an element from the periodic table and prove to the class that your element is the best. 

A "BEST ELEMENT" could be:

  • the one that has the most uses.
  • the most interesting element.
  • the one that is the most powerful.
  • the one that forms an important compound that is useful or dangerous to man or has unusual powers. 


You will create a visual and a brief written explanation to persuade the judges (your classmates) that your element is the best element ever.  You need to convince them why your element should win the Element of the Year award.  Be prepared to give reasons why your element is great, wonderful, exciting.  By the way you cannot vote for your element. 


Good Luck.
