This download includes 18 element cards. Each card contains a description of an element’s energy levels, classification (metal, nonmetal, metalloid) and number of valence electrons. A student page is included with answer spots for element cards 1-18. There are also 6 analysis questions on the student page.
This is a great activity for science TEKS 8.5 B and C. These cards have the students identify that the number of energy levels is associated with the period number and the number of valence electrons is associated with the group number.
This activity covers the important topic of groups and periods using the periodic table. Students will practice looking at the periodic table group and period number by identifying the number of energy levels and valence electrons of an element. Students will need a periodic table for this activity.
