Periodic Table of the Elements Project

I was really inspired by this Periodic Table of the Elements Project I saw in a classroom while attending Ed Camp Tulsa.

Periodic Table of the Elements Project

Each student was assigned a different element to research.  Their research was summarized on a small rectangle of paper, and the pieces of paper were joined to form the entire periodic table.

I’m not quite sure how to make this into a math project, but I’m thinking about it.  Maybe I could have students make posters over different mathematical properties???  Then, they could research one property and present it to the class.  The posters could be posted on the wall as a reminder for the remainder of the school year.    

I also really liked the simplicity of these element posters.
