Elements to Atoms and the Periodic Table

2-3 engaging lessons that make learning the periodic table more accessible. Ideal for low to middle ability groups. Students begin with finding the location of elements in the periodic table using the grid references (print 2 slides per sheet to keep costs low and have couple of examples of elements to hand - Zinc, Copper, Carbon, Aluminium). Students then learn about the structure of atoms and link this to the layout of the periodic table. Students finish by drawing atoms and consolidating learning through a game of Atom Trumps.

History of the periodic table

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.
Periodic Table REVISIONQuick View

Periodic Table REVISION

A fun and highly engaging lesson presentation (67 slides) and associated worksheets that uses differentiated exam questions (with answers) and competitions to allow students to test themselves on the groups of the Periodic Table. The competitions are designed in a series of rounds at a QUIZ night and include "Crack the Code", "Periodic Table Bingo" and "Blockbusters". There are exam questions included which are differentiated three ways (circles = highest ability, squares = middle ability, stars = lower ability). Students will thoroughly enjoy being able to test their knowledge of the Alkali metals, Halogens, Noble Gases and Transition metals as well as the organisation of the table and be able to recognise any areas which need further attention before an assessment. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students.

Periodic table colouring worksheets

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
