Acclimate your students to the periodic table of elements using this printable and digital distance learning activity as an introduction or review. Using their own table, students will search for different elements using the group, period, name, symbol, or atomic number. This is great practice for your students to navigate the table. Students love the scavenger hunt-like game to find the different elements.

Students will:

  • Find elements within a period, then in a group.
  • After completing those two activities, students will then be given the period and the group number and they will have to find the element, symbol, and atomic number.
  • Next, they will be given the element name and have to search for its period, group, symbol, and atomic number.
  • Finally, students will be given a list of elements and they will have to determine whether they are metal or nonmetal.

This lesson includes:

  • "How to use" teacher direction sheet and digital distance learning instructions to help distribute this to your learning management system such as Schoology or Google Classroom
  • Three pages of student activities
  • Google Forms (self - grading) link to digital version

My students really enjoy this activity. It is great to use in small groups or pairs or individually. It can even be used as a homework assignment to assess their ability to use the periodic table.

This lesson is used yearly with my grade 7 physical science students. They are always thoroughly engaged in this activity and I enjoy being able to assess their ability to navigate the periodic table of elements.
