LAND OF ELEMENTS! (Get it? Elemental Adventure? Aha*) *This is where you laugh.
No. Of course not. BUT, We will be delving into the endless depths of knowledge. If that’s not an adventure, I don’t know what is!
A notebook full of articles, summaries, and visuals about two elements One element is primary, the second is… secondary (obviously) Primary element: 10 entries Secondary element: 5 entries
Two Parts: Summary and Article Summary- 1-2 pages, single spaced, 12 font, ½ inch margins, Summary includes header, title, reference, and summary: Name of Element (Titanium) Date (December 21, 2010) Entry Number (Entry # 11) Title Reference Summary Page Number Article- photocopy of the article
The list of information that must be included is in your information packet. Beyond that, look for interesting articles about how your element is being used in the real world. Why is your element important? Example: titanium toothbrushes, iodine and goiters, gold food, phosphorus and coral
After every three summaries, you will have an AOI Reflection and page of visuals Visuals: 2-3 visuals (mix of graphs, tables, and pictures) Name of Element(s) (Phosphorus) Date (January 1, 2010) Entry # (Visuals #1) Title Visual Reference Brief Explanation Page Number
AOI Reflection: A one page, single spaced reflection on how the summaries relate to the AOIs Name of Element(s) (Phosphorus) Date (December 31, 2010) Entry # (AOI #1) Title Reflection Page Number
There are five AOIs that you can relate your summaries to. If you find difficulty in this task- refer to your AOIs sheet and use the guiding questions to respond to your summary. Approaches to Learning Community and Service Human Ingenuity Environment Health and Social Education
Consider using different colored paper for your two elements, AOIs, and visuals (Ex: Titanium- Yellow, Phosphorus- Blue, AOIs- Pink, Visuals- Green) Keep it clean! The sloppier you make your notebook, the harder it is to keep organized

Keep a running bibliography. TRUST ME. DON’T even think about plagiarism. References= MLA Explanation and understanding of a few concepts are far better than random facts. The basic information can be done in a few entries. After that, don’t be afraid to go above and beyond. Feel free to be… “mad as a hatter”
ITS TIME TO EMBARK ON THE JOURNEY… Are you ready?
