Research on the element you've been assigned can be approached using the resources below the assignment. Remember, there's no one source that will answer all the questions that are a part of this assignment - start with the The Elements Revealed and go from there!
Once you've developed a set of key words (words related to or about your topic) use these search strategies to narrow or broaden your results. Be patient. Be flexible. Be a researcher!
