Damascus Middle School 8th Graders Create Giant Periodic Table

A giant periodic table of elements hangs on a library wall.Science students in Mrs. Holmes’s class recently had an opportunity to expand their knowledge of the periodic table by creating Pizza Box Elements.  Students created the face of the table with the element name, symbol, atomic number, atomic mass, and etymology.

Inside the box, students wrote the element’s electron configuration, boiling and melting points, drawings to represent uses of the element, and the scientist who discovered the element.  Future students will continue the project until all 118 elements are decorating the library wall.  Pizza Plus of Damascus generously donated pizza boxes for each student.
