Helpful for SEN or low ability pupils to help them recognise groups and symbols in the periodic table by colouring the picture using the key (colour by periodic table group)
Included in the resource: ‘Label the periodic table’ worksheet ‘Key features of the periodic table’ worksheet Answer sheets for both worksheets These are useful introductory worksheets for teaching the periodic table. Worksheet 1: Students label the periodic table based on the words listed. They must also identify what a ‘group’ is and what a ‘period’ is. Students can also identify which regions of the periodic table are metals, non-metals and metalloids. Worksheet 2: Students answer questions on four key regions of the periodic table (alkali metals, halogens, noble gases and transition metals). The questions are based around properties, reactivity and uses. Please see the preview included. Please note that some of my resources may include American spellings.
Students research the periodic table using laptops (or information sheets) and fill in their sheet, then produce a leaflet on the periodic table and atomic structure. You can easily change the ‘demonstrate’ task at the bottom of the sheet or add another question. Created with OCR 21st Century Science Topic C2 (Chemical Patterns) in mind but would work for other specifications or could be easily adapted. (The preview is cropped but the actual document has borders!)
Leads the students through the development of the periodic table from Newland's to Mendeleev's. Links to YouTube video that explains Mendeleev's discovery. Differentiated questions to help students understanding. Final task introduces the students to trends and helps them to see first hand how the table is used.
A fun resource made for my SEN students to get used to finding symbols on the periodic table. Leaves some space for students to add their own symbols/colours Includes coloured periodic table
12 lesson bundle for the topic of ‘Atomic Structure and Periodic table’. All lessons designed to be self sufficiant and can be delivered to KS3 or KS4. All with exam styles plenaries. Include full details introductions to atoms, ions and isotopes. Enanbles students to learn how the periodic table was created and can evaluate the models. Fully animated guides allow the students to understand elements, compounds, mixtures, balancing equations, naming compounds and separating mixtures. Complete lessons designed for electron configuration, groups 1 and group 7 and the history of Rutherford and the plum pudding model.

AQA GCSE combined Science Triology bundle of resources from the ‘Atomic Structure’ unit Similar structure to my other power points following the input - activity - review phasing Plenary section for progress checking Clear learning objectives and outcomes Differentiated worksheet and mark scheme Modern and engaging layout Little adaptation needed Practical demo Please give constructive feedback :D
This lesson was designed for AQA's GCSE Chemistry (9-1) specification but is easily transferable to other specifications and key stages as challenge for KS3 and recap for KS5. It is a full lesson including a well laid out presentation that guides the teacher and students through the lesson, several consolidation tasks to encourage mastery and assess understanding throughout the lesson and a set of differentiated exam question for a final assessment of understanding from the lesson.

A ppt that introduces the concept of the periodic table and talks through some of the patterns shown by the elements. Activities included - some taken from other contributors - thank you! Blank periodic table included which I got students to colour in to reinforce patterns of metals, non-metals and metalloids.
A worksheet with questions on the Periodic Table for Year 8.
A worksheet with questions on the Periodic Table for lower ability Year 8.
Blank timeline to be filled in - very basic, high/low ability versions which I used for a bottom set year 10, they researched information online Dobereiner, Newlands and Mendeleev
A simple task designed to give students a cultural and historical overview for the development of the periodic table by different sciencetists at different points of history. Scientists such as Mendeleev and Newlands along with what their discovery was and when it was. This is a good task for students to do in line with the AGA topic Development of the periodic table. Suitable for foundation students.
Similar to the principle of the Maths equation worksheets, 6 colouring sheets with chemical symbols instead of equations. Ppt included of the periodic table the colouring is based on, We have a few of these laminated to use as reference as well as projecting the PPt. We have the YPO coloured pencil sets in our Dept so this table fitted the pencil colours we had. Obviously could be coloured in more abstract fashion using other periodic tables. Could be used as a revision for Periodic table suitable for KS3 & 4 we have used it for both
CC4c lesson from the new Edexcel combined science GCSE (9-1) all about electron configuration and the periodic table. The lesson includes electron shells, electron configuration and electron configuration patterns in the periodic table.
**Whole lesson for the new AQA SOW for the Collins textbooks. ** ECO-FRIENDLY AND PAPER-SAVING LESSON! No printing required as all activities and questions are on the PowerPoint. Lesson will be part of a series of lessons for this chapter on Matter for KS3 Chemistry and follows the new AQA scheme of work, which ties in well with the 9-1 GCSE for AQA. Please check my other resources to access the FREE complete PowerPoint for Lessons 1 and 3 to see what style this will be. The lesson has many opportunities to help students understand the concept of melting/boiling points, what state of matter a substance is at a particular temperature and a chance to plot graphs. Graphs are on the PowerPoint for students to assess their work and check if it is correct. Please buy and support my work, as it will be very much appreciated! Please leave a review and ways to improve my work. Thank you!
Differentiated worksheet. One for Noble gases and one for Halogens. Treasure hunt/marketplace style activity with pit-stop tests included. Includes, uses, dangers, appearances, names of compounds. Keywords provided as well as stretch and challenge literacy task.
