Use the internet to research about some elements. There are many suitable sites, e.g. www.ptable.com , http://www.rsc.org/periodic-table , http://elements.wlonk.com/ (more basic and colourful), www.chem4kids.com

Produce a Word doc that can be printed and added to books. DO NO COPY AND PASTE. Some may choose to write directly into books if they wish.

For each:



Atomic number

State where it is in the periodic table

Physical properties including melting point, boiling point, colour

Interesting facts (at least 2 per element)

Refugee Movement to Europe

Create a factfile which answers the following questions:

  • Why do people want to migrate to Europe? (push and pull factors)
  • How many people have attempted to migrate?
  • How do they migrate?
  • How many migrants have died trying to cross the Mediterranean?
  • How many migrants have claimed asylum in the EU?
  • Which countries receive the most applications?


  • Find three individual research points and/or include appropriate graphs diagrams to illustrate you work


  • What problems/issues do the migrants face when they arrive in the EU? (e.g. in Greece, Italy)
  • What are the issues of such large movements of migrants for the EU itself? (e.g. for Greece, Italy)
