Google Slides can be a collaborative space where students can work together. Assigning students or groups to different slides can be an interesting way for students to see one another's work. In order to do this as an assignment, attach the file in Google Classroom then give all students edit access.

In this Google Slides, each slide is a different element. Students would hypothetically be assigned a slide and then research their element.

You can have students do 1-3 slides depending on numbers of students. You could also assign groups to students and have them research noble gases in general, for instance, to create a few more slides for students to do. In the past, I have taken these and created a large periodic table on the wall, but for online work, this works well.

Here are my suggested guidelines provided as templates on the slides:

  • Atomic Symbol
  • Atomic Number
  • Atomic Mass
  • # Protons, # Neutrons, # Electrons
  • Date of Discovery AND who Discovered it (if applicable)
  • 1 sentence history/important fact about element
  • Picture with caption of where the element is found in nature or a common use of the element (ex: gold jewelry)
  • At least TWO symbols (key provided)
