This lesson provides and introduction to and broad overview the periodic table.
Special family names such as alkali metals and halogens are covered. Emphasized, however, are the difference between groups and periods.
Students use data tables to analyze the properties that elements in a period have in common with one another as well as the properties that elements in a group have in common with one another.
metals, metalloids, and nonmetals are identified and placed on the table. Metallic character is a trend covered directly afterwards.
Most of my chemistry lessons are 8 slide PowerPoints. I print the PowerPoints each day (4 slides per page... front and back = 1 sheet of paper per student). The students then fill out the answers to my guided and scaffolded questions as I fill them out on the SmartBoard. My teaching style is highly interactive, and my lessons support that style.
All lessons include a Do Now, Mini Lesson, Pair Up, and Summary to keep students moving and engaged.
To remove the "Wickline" watermark, select the Watermark from the Insert menu, then select No Watermark. You cannot remove the watermark's from .pdf files and SmartBoard files, so you'll have to make new ones from your fresh watermark-less Microsoft file.
