Use as sorting cards- have students sort cards into categories such as metals, nonmetals, and metalloids or into the group/family names.
These cards can also be used in games like periodic trends war where students roll a dice to select a trend to compare. The element with the highest value is the winner. The winner adds both cards to his/her pile.
I printed a set for each pair of students and laminated them. Each group cut out one set and now they can be used over and over.
60 element cards are included in this set.
