NO PREP! Use the Periodic Table as a "decoder" for patriotic American words - perfect for celebrating President's Day, the Fourth of July, Veteran's Day, or Memorial Day in science class. Middle schoolers love this activity!
Use element atomic numbers and names to decode 30 words or phrases associated with the United States, such as free, liberty, democracy, vote, veterans, constitution, diversity, etc. Two versions are provided - they have the same 30 words, but one is decorated with festive clip art and the other isn't. Related NGSS Standard: MS-PS1-1.
NO PREP - just copies! A clear and easy to read printable periodic table is included with the download. Makes a great sub plan near patriotic holidays. Answer key included.
