This Periodic Table of Elements package is designed to help introduce your students to the elements in the Periodic Table. This package offers three student projects that help your students become more familiar with common elements found in the Periodic Table. Each project allows students to transform their knowledge in unique and creative ways. This package also includes background information on how the Periodic Table is arranged and a fun scavenger hunt game of common elements.
There are three projects from which to choose depending on the interest or abilities of your students. This is great for student differentiation. These three projects require students to do research on one common element from the Periodic Table. They will then share their findings with the rest of the class in an Element Poster, an Element Facebook Page or an Element Dating Video.
Included in this package are:
-Background Information on the Periodic Table
-Scavenger Hunt on common elements found on the Periodic Table (with answer keys)
-Three projects designed for student investigation of one common element (teacher or student may choose the element to research).
-Collaboration Summary sheets (Jigsaw cooperative activity)
Each project contains extensive student and teacher directions, student samples of each project, graphic organizers and assessment charts for each project.
Our grade seven classes found this to be highly engaging! These projects can be easily adapted for grade 5 (simple) to grade 11 (more complex). This Periodic Table of Elements package requires little or No Prep on the part of the teacher.
