In this hands on activity, students use what they know about the periodic table to put the square back together. Since students have to apply the periodic table rules in order to solve the square, this activity is a fun and unique way to review before a test or quiz.
The periodic table rules covered in this square review game are finding the atomic mass, group and period numbers, and finding the number of protons, electrons, and neutrons.
The teacher simply prints the one page document for each group, cuts apart the squares, and let's the students to the rest. I prefer to laminate the squares so they can be used again. It works great in small groups, as a center, or as an independent activity.
