Periodic Table BINGO is one of my students' favorite ways to practice the periodic table rules. This game is versatile, so we can play several times throughout the unit. Play as a whole class or have students read the questions for their peers as a center.
With this game, you get instructions, two sets of BINGO questions (with 51 questions and answers in each set) and 36 unique BINGO cards. That's right, each card is different!
Question Set One includes only element names, symbols, and atomic numbers. This question set is perfect for the beginning of the unit, when students are beginning to familiarize themselves with the periodic table. This set would also be good for younger students.
Question Set Two includes proton, electron, and neutron numbers, atomic masses, periods, groups, valence electrons, and a few specific vocabulary terms (metalloid and noble gas). This set is great to use with older students who are expected to use the periodic table to find information about an element. It works great for end of unit review as well.
