Periodic Table Mobile
Here are a few students posing with our mobile of the Periodic Table of the Elements. Each student in eighth grade art was assigned one element. Using balsa foam, on one side they carved the atomic structure of the element. On the other side, they carved an image that represented
some fact about that element. For instance, the element Rhenium is from the same root word for rose, so the student below carved a rose on one side of the block.
Chromium was once used in chrome bumpers, so in one of the blocks above you see a chrome bumper on an antique car.
Here is the mobile showing what is completed so far. The next section of eighth graders will complete the mobile.
