Metacognition and Challenge Task: The Periodic Wedding Conundrum

The periodic wedding conundrum is a chemistry themed logic puzzle in which students are given a series of clues to help them solve the periodic table plan for Dr Element’s wedding who can’t have his elemental guests reacting during his ceremony.

Will your students be able to help Dr Element and find a place to sit Father Francium, Prof. Potassium, Lady Lithium and Sir Silicon without causing a disaster - only time will tell? Good luck…we’ll be checking back soon - periodically of course!
