My Element Report!
Today, I am going to talk about my three elements I picked. My first element I picked was Neon. The symbol is Ne. Do you know what the atomic number to Neon is? It is number 10. Sir William Ramsay and Morris William Travers created/ found Neon in 1898. Neon can be found in tiny groups in the atmosphere. Also it can be found in the rocks in Earth’s crust. Neon gas is used for advertising signs.
My next element is Potassium. The symbol for Potassium is K. The atomic number is 19. Sir Humphrey Davy found this element in 1807. You can find Potassium in minerals. The Potassium iron is very important to the muscle tissue. “K” is used for making glass and soap.
My last element is Yttrium. The symbol is Y. The atomic number is 39. Did you know that Johan Gadolin found Yttrium in 1794? You can also find “Y” in minerals just like Potassium! It is used for red phosphors in the TV also, it is in radars.
