Use this activity to allow the students to become familiar with the names and symbols of the periodic table. Students have to read the names of the elements, and find their symbols on the periodic table in order to spell out names of films.
Students who finish early, can then write a secret message to a partner. They should write the names of the elements, and their partner translates it to symbols to spell out the message. (I tell my students they should make the message be at least three words, and to keep it PG.)
