I Am a Star *suitable for home teaching*

This resource is based around the chemical composition of the human body and the origin of elements in the universe. Students can input a mass in the spreadsheet to see what proportion of their mass is from elements created in the Big Bang, in stars and in supernovae. Graphs are also shown for the relative abundance in moles, as well as percentage composition. Students can also get an idea of what they are “worth” in terms of the cost of pure elements. What do my elements do? gives the uses and values of the elements and spans across biology, chemistry and physics.
