How to review withOUT drill and kill: Logic Line-Ups. I use this Logic Line-Up in my Science classes to review trends on the periodic table of elements (metals, non-metals, metalloids, and lanthanide series).
Develop your students' thinking skills with hands-on cooperative logic activities. You copy the provided picture cards and clues for your students. They work in teams to figure out how to use the clues to line up their cards in the correct order. Build your students' deductive thinking skills, spatial reasoning, spatial vocabulary, and teamwork skills with these ready-to-use, logic activities. You'll find problems, answers and reproducible, line-up cards.
I also included a classroom formation activity for students to make a human model of the periodic table of the elements. I use it as a brain break assessment for my more kinesthetic learners.
It covers the following Florida Next Generation Sunshine State Standard Benchmarks: SWBAT
• SC.8.P.8.6 Recognize that elements are grouped in the periodic table according to similarities in their properties.
• SC.8.P.8.7 Explore the scientific theory of atoms (also known as atomic theory) by recognizing that atoms are the smallest unit of an element and are composed of sub-atomic particles (electrons surrounding a nucleus containing protons and neutrons).[CCSS Connections: MACC.K12.MP.4: Model with mathematics].
• SC.912.P.8.3 Explore the scientific theory of atoms (also known as atomic theory) by describing changes in the atomic model over time and why those changes were necessitated by experimental evidence.
• SC.912.P.8.4 Explore the scientific theory of atoms (also known as atomic theory) by describing the structure of atoms in terms of protons, neutrons and electrons, and differentiate among these particles in terms of their mass, electrical charges and locations within the atom.
• SC.912.P.8.5 Relate properties of atoms and their position in the periodic table to the arrangement of their electrons.
