This lab activity simulates Mendeleev's organization of the elements to acquaint students with several of the elements, introducing the ideas of symbols, atomic masses, properties and the patterns in which elements react together to form compounds. At the same time students are introduced to the periodic patterns that are observed in the Periodic Table. The activity also becomes an exercise in recognizing similarities in the elements and grouping the elements accordingly.
There is no attempt to be historically accurate and the students will work with many elements and properties that were unknown to Mendeleev.
