An easy, minimal-preparation game to review the periodic families, protons, neutrons, and electrons. Use after you have taught the names of the periodic families. A fun way to reinforce these concepts.
Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms. Examples of properties that could be predicted from patterns could include reactivity of metals, types of bonds formed, numbers of bonds formed, and reactions with oxygen. Assessment is limited to main group elements. Assessment does not include quantitative understanding of ionization energy beyond relative trends.
