Product Description
This resource is part of the Atoms and the Periodic Table Bundle!

These digital or print Atoms and the Periodic Table 'Mad Lib' Task Cards cover the basics of atomic structure and how to read the Periodic Table. These are great to use for formative assessment/review during a unit or before a quiz. The questions draw cover the Understand, Apply, Analyze, and Evaluate levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy. The topics covered are: location/charge/mass of protons, neutrons, and electrons, how to find the number of neutrons in an atom, the concept of an isotope, groups and periods on the Periodic Table, location of the metals, non-metals, and metalloids, names of the main groups/families, valence electrons, how to determine the number of energy levels/electron shells and valence electrons based on a Main Group element’s location on the Periodic Table, and a basic understanding of reactivity (Noble Gases are unreactive, Alkali Metals are most reactive metals, and Halogens are most reactive non-metals.).

Here's the 'Mad Lib' part: the questions are all multiple choice and each answer choice has a word (a noun, verb, adverb, or adjective) associated with it. The students answer each of the 24 questions and write down the answer letter and answer word that corresponds to their answer choice. Once they have completed all 24 Task Cards, they ask the teacher for the ‘Mad Lib’ text. For this set of Task Cards, the text is the lyrics to “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” by The Beatles. (This song has very eccentric lyrics so the students don’t realize that they are choosing lyrics from this song while they complete the Task Cards!). The students should add their answer words to the text to complete the assignment. If anyone gets any answers wrong, the song lyrics will become even more eccentric! A great way to quickly review the answers is to actually play the song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds and have the students listen for the words that they wrote down in their ‘Mad Lib’ text!

There are two versions of these Task Cards included in the download. One has four Task Cards per page that you can cut apart and tape around your classroom. The students would take their Answer Sheet and a Periodic Table and complete the cards in any order. The other version is a Google Slides version, which makes these digital Task Cards. I have provided the link to the Google Drive version. Students could complete the Task Cards individually or in partners on a device.

Blank cards are included in case you want to substitute a question of your own!
