Students will need a textbook, the internet, or another resource to complete this worksheet.
In Part One, students get a better understanding of characteristics of element families as they complete a grid with information such as group number, elements in the group, examples of this group in “the real world”, etc. They color code each family using colored pencils.
In Part Two, students fill in a blank Periodic Table with element symbols, row number, and group numbers. The table is color coded with the same family colors as students used the first part so show related elements.
Between finding the information, color coding both sides, and filling in the Periodic Table, this worksheet is pretty time-consuming.
