After introducing the Periodic Table of Elements, I assign this sheet as homework. It is meant to get the students looking around the table and familiarizing themselves with some of the names of the elements. For a few of the questions you will need to be sure that you are working with a table that has the state of the elements at room temperature. One of the ones I have used is: http://education.jlab.org/itselemental/tableofelements5d.pdf. It is available for public use, but it is not mine to attach to the document.
Be sure to find Tom Lehrer's Element Song online. The kids will love it. I have included a transcript of the lyrics. In the past I have had the students learn the song and sing it at an assembly. The elements are not in order in the song, and it doesn't have much utility, but it is fun.
I have included PDF and Word files for you to be able to edit the questions if you like.
