Use element atomic numbers and symbols to decode words or phrases associated with Thanksgiving, such as gravy, relatives, leftovers, cornucopia, etc. There are 35 words/phrases in total. Two versions are provided - they have the same 35 words, but one is decorated with pictures that relate to the words and the other isn't. (We find older students are quick to use the pictures instead of the periodic table, which is why we provide the version that has no pictures.) Related NGSS Standard: MS-PS1-1.
NO PREP - just copies! A clear and easy to read printable periodic table is included with the download. Makes a great sub plan in November. Answer key included.
