My students love this Periodic Table project for which they design a Periodic Table because it gives them a chance to express themselves, and to own the concept of periodicity! I always notice an increase in chemistry-enthusiasm during and after this project. I introduce this after I teach my students about the groups, periods, families and sections of the periodic table.
The possible themes for this project are practically limitless because kids come up with the most interesting topics to categorize into element families.
Be amazed by your students' creativity and relish in the fact that you are improving their higher-level thinking skills!
There is an EDITABLE version included, as well as detailed student instructions, teacher notes, examples, and grading rubric!
