This is a worksheet that goes with the beautifully illustrated Periodic Table at http://elements.wlonk.com. I wanted a way to incorporate the table into my introductory chemistry unit, so I made this worksheet!
This activity gives the students the chance to study the table, learn which everyday items contain which elements, and notice certain characteristics like which elements are found in the human body, which are found in the Earth's crust, which are magnetic, which are radioactive, and more!
I print a colored class-set of the table front/back (there is more information on the back of the squares), and a worksheet for each student. The students enjoy looking at the pictures and seeing the elements in a "fresher" way! You could also have your students simply go to the website where the table is located and use this activity more like a webquest. This could also be used as a filler activity, extra credit, or as sub plans!
