Fun Fact: The names of 34 world countries can be written by combining element symbols found on the Periodic Table! In this fun resource, students convert between an element's name and its symbol in order to solve country themed puzzles.
This resource consists of two puzzle pages in a zipped folder
•"World Map of the Elements", asks students to convert an element names into their symbols to reveal the names of 11 countries labelled on the world map.
•"Landmarks and the Elements", has students going in the reverse direction; Students convert the element symbol into the element's name. In doing so, they reveal the country of the landmark listed.
• Full solutions are included!
These worksheets are appropriate when familiarizing students with the Periodic Table, as a fun review before a quiz, or as an engaging task for your fast finishers. The instant feedback built into each puzzle means that students are engaged and build confidence (and might incidentally learn something world countries).
Fully editable and with complete solutions! This resource is fantastic as part of a plan for your substitute teacher!
