This purchase is for 10 assignment sheets focusing on the Periodic Table of Elements. These assignments are perfect for either in-class work, homework, or extra credit. Each worksheet is designed for Grades 6th – 8th but some minor changes should make them perfect for older or younger students as needed and will enhance your unit!
Included with this bundle package are the following assignments:
1) PERIODIC TABLE WEBQUEST CHART
This assignment is perfect as an early introduction to both the Periodic Table of Elements, Element Information, and Atomic Structure.
The worksheet focuses on information provided on two specific websites: www.chemicalelements.com and www.webelements.com although with a few minor changes you can turn the worksheet into a general webquest.
2) PERIODIC TABLE FACEBOOK PAGE RESEARCH PROJECT (PDF)
*Webquest : students will choose one element from the Periodic Table and research some basic facts and history on the element (year of discovery, who discovered, properties, phase, uses, etc...)
*Facebook Page Creation : the checklist-directions instruct students to design an imaginary Facebook Page for the element they researched. All key information on the Periodic Table is used as is information from their Webquest Research Page.
The project works best using MS-Word but can also be done as an artwork project (provided all facts have been researched in advance). An example page is provided for the element - Hydrogen.
3) PERIODIC TABLE PUZZLE PAGE
This assignment is great to use as a basic introduction to the Periodic Table of Elements. We all know the first time students work with the table it can be very confusing for them so this worksheet eases them into it by allowing them to work with chemical symbols and rows/columns.
The front side of the worksheet is a crossword puzzle where chemical symbols are provided. Students use their Periodic Table to locate the symbol and write the name of the correct element in the grid.
The back side of the worksheet is an introduction to columns and rows as students identify which element resides at what column and row location on the Periodic Table.
4) PARTS OF THE ATOM POWER POINT PRESENTATION (PPT)
This presentation is perfect for anyone looking to add some extra content to their lecture on the subatomic particles and diagrams of the atom. This power point presentation will enhance any lesson focusing on this topic.
21 slides cover: The Parts of the Atoms, Nucleus, Protons, Neutrons, Electrons, Energy Levels, Neils Bohr "The Father of the Atom", etc…
Each section also has links to a variety of videos of 2-10 minutes in length (information ranges from basic to advanced chemistry so you'll need to pick and choose for the grade level that you are teaching). If you like to have your students take notes, the power point and videos are perfect!
The power point is provided as-is so editing to fit your classroom needs will only take seconds.
5) PERIODIC TABLE TASK CARDS SET 1 (ZIP)
