Periodic Table of the Lost Civilization: A Review Game for chemistry or physical science students in Grades 9-12: Periodic Table of the Lost Civilization.
How well do your students know their way around the periodic table? This fun and interactive review game will ensure that your students understand the relationships and periodic properties of the elements on the periodic table.
Scientists have just announced a most amazing discovery! A long lost civilization has been found buried beneath many feet of lava from an ancient volcanic eruption. From the artifacts recovered, it is obvious that this civilization was quite advanced. The population consisted of many scientists who were in the early stages of discovering and identifying the elements of the natural world. Stone tablets were recovered from beneath the lava showing that these ancient scientists were in the process of developing a periodic table of the elements known to them. Unfortunately, a volcanic eruption destroyed this civilization before the periodic table was complete. The stone tablets show only the descriptions of the elements of groups 1, 2, and 13-18. It would appear that the transition elements and inner transition elements had not yet been discovered.
What will the students be doing?
The ancient population had different names and symbols for the elements than those used on the modern day periodic table. Students must read the clues and descriptions of each element and place the elements in the correct position on the periodic table.
To place elements on the modified periodic table according to their chemical and physical properties.
