This is an active lesson and activity that introduces the periodic table of elements and its structure. This lesson assumes a student has been taught the basic atom elements: proton, neutron, electron, nucleus, and electron orbital or shell.
This lesson takes about two hours but has natural breaking points to spread it out over 2-3 days if needed.
-what the periodic table is
-the table's basic structure including periods and groups
-symbol and elements
-atomic mass (where it is on the table)
It also includes:
-A student note page
-digital products to create flashcards, just add index cards and label sheets (label sheets are optional)
-directions for the lesson
-an alphabetical list of the elements with their atomic number, names, and symbols
-a 'just for fun' riddle page
-answer keys for the notes and the just for fun pages
This lesson is not only great for whole class instruction, but can easily be adapted for homeschooling or self-guidance through the periodic table. It's also a great value if you just want an easy way to make a set of flashcards.
