this word file is a game that can be used to introduce students to some of the names of elements on the periodic table.
an example of a typical questions is "Everything but the kitchen ______________ . (Zn)"
hints are included but can easily be removed for students that are clever. I would leave the hints in for classes that are moving at a more relaxed pace.
this game is a proven winner and should generate a few laughs.
Another great activity meant for a chemistry class would be:
The Periodic Table of Rappers Game
[good for chemistry classes]
