1. Reflect on your learning and growth during the topic of basic chemistry (quote, below). What did you learn? How do you know you have learned it? Why does this learning matter?
  2. Write a blog post about your learning and include your unique element graphic (sample images, below), providing your audience with a helpful visual as to some of the properties of a specific element and how these properties can be used to determine periodic trends.
  3. Reflect openly on whether and if this topic and the approach helped you to understand the importance of basic chemistry knowledge in the real world. If possible, provide examples. If you still have questions, what are they?

Once finished, tweet the link to your blog post to garner a wider audience. Your tweet should contain the following hashtags: #sci9hon, #ASFMlearns, #chemistry and any other relevant tags, space permitting.

HS-PS1-1 Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms.
