Periodic Table Project

What is the periodic table? Where did it come from? Who came up with it? Why?

You are to write a page for a chemistry book about the periodic table’s history. There are several different versions all of which showed the elements in different ways.

Names to look at

  • Joseph Priestley
  • Antoine Lavoisier
  • John Dalton
  • John Newlands
  • Alexandre-Emile Beguyer de Chancourtois
  • Dimitri Mendeleev

You should explain why there is a need for the periodic table, what it can tell us about elements. It needs to be formatted correctly, images must be aligned left, right or centrally. Use the standard word styles for titles, headings and subtitles. Do NOT use word art.
