Introducing the Periodic Table? This is one of my best sellers and my all time favorite lesson to teach. Introduce the Periodic Table with this puzzle, and have students telling YOU how the Periodic Table was organized!
Students work together to discover the best way to organize colored/numbered shape pieces. All you need for this activity is a color printer, sandwich bags (or paper clips) and a prize for the winning group (not totally necessary, but fun). Handout, answer key and lesson plan included. This is the BEST activity for introducing the Periodic Table EVER! My students (8th graders) got SO into this activity, it even surprised them how much they liked it!
