Outline of information:

  • Name of element
  • Elements symbol
  • Atomic mass, Atomic number
  • B.P, M.P, physical state, density on your poster, clearly labeled.
  • Energy level, orbital, and number of valence electrons
  • Abundance in the earths crust
  • **This information should be in a neat chart on your poster.
