OBSERVING THE ELEMENTS
We need to get samples of as many different elements as we can. That can include tin, copper, sulfur, gold, silver, zinc, lead, and any others available.
At first, each student can work with his or her own collection of samples, individually.
Let's look at them, feel of them, smell them, weigh them; examine each sample element to learn everything that our senses can teach us about them. We want to pay attention to their colors, hardness, textures, and any other properties we can observe. We'll make notes, so that we won't forget what we've learned by observation.
After we've each learned all we can about our own samples, and made notes showing what we've observed, we can compare our notes with those of the other students.
We could even have a contest to see whether one student can describe an element so well that the other students can identify it.
The brilliant scientist tells us that there are 92 elements, and we have a list of them. Our assignment is to think of examples of uses for as many of them as possible. We can do this individually or collectively, but in either case, we all need to make notes.
