5th grade is learning about elements and the periodic table.Some of the classes did a project on atoms. They researched their own element by reading books and looking on the internet. Each project had to include the number of protons, electrons, and neutrons. They also had to find out atomic number and weight. Each project included a slogan about the properties. 5th graders also made a Bohr model with fruit loops. The protons , electrons and neutrons were different colors. They had to place the correct number of fruit loops on each shell. Two electrons go on the first shell, on the second shell there is space for eight. The students projects are in their classrooms and in the hall. A 5th grader said”I enjoyed the project because it was hands on and it was yummy.”Another 5th grader said “I liked the project because it was fun to do.” Many people liked it because they liked learning about atom and doing a project.
