                                                  Periodic Table
Students will learn the trends and basics of the periodic table
through the use of a periodic table and interactive worksheet.

Learning Outcomes:
    Know the basic properties of each class of elements.

The periodic table is a table that holds all the chemical elements found on Earth. The periodic
table is divided into: periods, groups, and classes. The horizontal rows are called periods. The
vertical columns are called groups. The entire table consists of three classes: metals, non-
metals, and semi-metals. The subdivisions of the periodic chart have been explained such that
the student should be able to identify them if given a periodic table.

Materials Needed:
   5 different colored pencils or crayons and also any color pen
   A black and white periodic table (included)


     1.   Identify hydrogen, and draw a circle around it
     2.   Next color in the noble gases
     3.   Next color in the alkali Metals
     4.   Next color in the alkaline earth metals
     5.   Next color in the halogens
     6.   Next color in the remaining metals

                                                  Fun Facts!

         There are 90 elements on the periodic table that occur in nature. All of the other
          elements are strictly man-made

         Technetium was the first element to be made artificially (man-made)

         The rows of the periodic table are called periods. They go from left to right

         The columns of the periodic table are called groups. Columns go up and down in the
          periodic table. Elements within a group share several common properties

         Most of the elements on the periodic table are metals. The alkali metals, alkaline earths,
          basic metals, transition metals, lanthanides and actinides all are groups of metals

         The present periodic table has room for 118 elements

         Elements aren't discovered or created in order of atomic number

         Scientists are working on creating and verifying element 120, which will change the
          appearance of the table

         There is more Hydrogen (H) than there is any other element in the Universe

         Carbon (C) has almost 10,000,000 known compounds


     1. How many elements are there?

     2. Can you give me the name of one group that you colored in today?

     3. How many elements occur naturally in nature?

     4. Columns of elements share what things? Columns go up and down.
