Product Description
Students begin with a blank periodic table and create a resource they will use all year.
A good periodic table as a reference is important to learning chemistry. It’s useful in physical science and biology as well.

There are kinesthetic and visual benefits when students add the needed information themselves.
Directions are in the order most students find helpful. They can color first, so long as they label numbers and symbols in a pen that writes over the color.
Including only frequently-used element symbols eliminates the scavenger hunt when students must wade through bunches of symbols to find the element’s square they need.
Other information may be added. I like to have students write in charges of those elements forming ions as we learn them. Students can also add atomic numbers and masses.
Students usually need about 45 minutes to complete all steps.
This activity can be used in stages over several lessons as you learn about and discuss the periodic table.
Students can work in groups and check one another's accuracy and progress.
Steps can be assigned as summary or homework tasks.
Quiz with answer key included.
