Adopt an Element ROL
In my Chemistry class my teacher is Ms.Manabe. The project I am going to present to you is called “Adopt An Element.” The learning outcomes for this project is being able to know the agricultural use of the element you picked. Another learning outcomes is to learn about elements and the periodic table.
Basically the project “Adopt an element” is choosing an element that has an agricultural use. You have to be able to know the function, importance and application.In this project you had to write 3 paragraphs. The first paragraph was about the function, the second paragraph was about the importance and the last paragraph was about the application. We had to reach at least 300 words. We also had to create an advertisement for our element along with completing a fact sheet.The process I went through started with completing the fact sheet. Ms.Manabe gave us 3 links that helped us complete the fact sheet & I used the links. Also, I created my advertisement. I did this in google slides. Furthermore I did my 3 paragraphs. This was the hardest part for me because I didn't really get what the importance, function and application were but I went into further research and I managed to finish it. Finally we had to give a 3 minute presentation summarizing the paragraphs we wrote. We had to present in front of the class. I honestly can say that I didn’t know much about Sulfur (the element I picked), but now I know that most fertilizers are made from Sulfur & Sulfur helps crops grow.At first I thought that this project was going to be easy and the advertisement was going to be hard because of the slogan. This project made me realize that I can be able to complete hard activities if I put a lot of effort into it.
The 2 SLO’s I demonstrated in this artifact are Thinking critically and creatively & Applying technological skills for the 21st century.I demonstrated the SLO thinking critically & creativity because I created an advertisement and when I did that I added a really good slogan. I also put pictures of fertilizers made from Sulfur around my element with arrows. This is showing what Sulfur makes. I also demonstrated the SLO Applying technological skills for the 21st century by using modern technology. Of Course I used a chromebook to do my work, but I also used google slides to draw my element instead of doing it on paper. I did not have to go to the library and get books about Sulfur. All I had to do was search it up online and I found a really good links that helped me.The 2 SLO’s I demonstrated in this artifact are important because It makes me achieve the schools learning objectives. This is good for my future in helping me become better at doing projects.The SLO I think I could've done a better job Mastering skills needed in career and college. I think I could've done a better job at writing paragraphs and I know that I will type a lot of paragraphs/essays in college and my future job.
I have learned a lot of things during this project. I learned a lot about sulfur & things I didn’t know before. I learned that fertilizers are made with Sulfur. The fertilizers help the crops. Also, some medicines contain Sulfur. Sulfur does not only help plants but it helps humans too.The skills I have learned during this project will help me in my future because I will become better at presenting and writing paragraphs. I will also get better at searching for information.
