This lesson requires the use of "The Periodic Table Adventure Game" chemistry playing cards. I warn you, this is not actually a game as the manufacturer says... it's more of an exercise.
Students receive packs of cards with elements and their properties and are asked to reproduce the periodic table with the cards based on what they have learned in the unit.
Afterwards, they do a detailed analysis of trends they observe in the cards... it's like chemistry Tarot card reading!
You can easily make flash cards with enough information to substitute for the cards I purchased from the manufacturer.
Most of my chemistry lessons are 8 slide PowerPoints. I print the PowerPoints each day (4 slides per page... front and back = 1 sheet of paper per student). The students then fill out the answers to my guided and scaffolded questions as I fill them out on the SmartBoard. My teaching style is highly interactive, and my lessons support that style.
All lessons include a Do Now, Mini Lesson, Pair Up, and Summary to keep students moving and engaged.
To remove the "Wickline" watermark, select the Watermark from the Insert menu, then select No Watermark. You cannot remove the watermark's from .pdf files and SmartBoard files, so you'll have to make new ones from your fresh watermark-less Microsoft file.
