This is a hands-on break out activity that would be great for an intro Chemistry course or a Physical Science class. Students will tackle 5 tasks as they assume the role of a super hero (HYDRO-MAN) in order to restore the land of Periodica back to balanced state. This was initially designed for physical locks and a break out box that will reveal Hydro-Man's special rehydration prescription (watermelon candy ... not included) upon successful completion of all tasks.
Content Topics Include:
Periodic Table Trends
Oxidation Numbers and Valence Electrons
It could easily be converted to a digital format using all the tasks if physical components are not readily available.
