As part of a chemistry unit of study, Setauket Elementary School sixth-graders closely studied the 118 elements found on the Periodic Table of Elements. 

During the project, each student selected a different element and completed a fact sheet on the item. They took note of the element’s atomic number, atomic weight and the number of protons, electrons and neutrons as well as its valance shell. The completed information sheets were placed on display in the shape of the periodic table in the sixth-grade hallway.

In addition, each student created a 3-D model of the element they had studied. The designs were crafted at home and displayed in the Setauket library for all grades to enjoy.
