Mole and Element Project

This project is great for students learning about the mole for the first time. I have used it in my SCH3UI and SCH4CI courses in Ontario since 2012. Students research an element and create a stuffed mole from felt. They choose a theme for the mole based on the facts they have gathered about the element. The mole must display how the element relates to it in four ways. A poster/infographic is also created. Sources are listed in APA format. An element worksheet, instructions, and a rubric are provided for the project. Click here for resources!
