Pre Investigation Discussion/  Intro into Do 1 - Modeling Conservation of Energy

The mini posters are graded. Some 'forgot' to submit. Here is the assignment so it can be made up:

Noble Gases

The Noble Gas elements in the Periodic Table are a unique group of elements. One characteristic that they all have in common is that they all have eight valence electrons and satisfy the Octet Rule. You and your partner chose one Noble Gas to research. Illustrate the Lewis Dot Structure of the element, and describe how the valence electrons in the element impact its behavior with other elements. Present information on the evidence of how your element is impacted by electrical forces.

Prepare a mini poster as visual presentation. This is a DW grade.
