  1. Page 140 in your book is a periodic table. Go thought the gossip list and underline all of the elements you see. Then look for each element on the periodic table and write the atomic symbol on the line. They should form some sort of word or texting phrase.
    For the license plate activity, use the periodic table and see which symbols you can put together to for a work. For example, Copper’s symbol is Cu and Tellurium’s symbol is Te. When you put the two symbols together it spells CuTe.

    Do the best you can! We can talk about it during the do now tomorrow.
