Yes - another foldable about the periodic table! This year (2017-2018), my class time has been cut even more because of new scheduling ideas and school activities, so I needed to come up with a new activity for quickly and efficiently teaching the periodic table and its main groups.
This activity only includes the basics - what elements are, how to understand the periodic table's layout, how to read element squares, rules of writing chemical symbols, and physical properies of metals, nonmetals, and metals.
This is different from my other two periodic table activities (Ultimate Element Study Guide
and Element, Compound, and Mixture Basics
) in that it is a new way to take in and look at the facts about the periodic table and the three main groups of elements, it folds differently (top-folding), and there is nothing included about compounds and mixtures.
This is a great beginner's guide. It is a simple layout and it does not take long to complete. Just this year (2017), I gave this activity to my students. To fill in the information, I lectured and asked my students questions to guide them. I followed up each element (metal, nonmetal, and metalloid) section with a short educational video to give them something more visual. This took two 45-minute periods to complete, cut-out, and glue in their journals. With this, they now have an easy-open study guide that's not too complex.
I hope you and your students enjoy this like mine!
