The Gold Dust Kid is a common name of element practice. I have edited it to include groups, periods and valence as the clue instead of the element symbol. For example, a (G: 18, P: 1) _______________ filled balloon passed overhead. (answer: Helium) Students will use group number or valence number and period number to find the identity of the element in the story. Thsi activity is a fun way to have students practice groups and periods over and over again. Please change the name of the town to the town you teach in.
