Metals and Non-Metals and the Periodic Table (KS3 Chemistry)

(1)
This is a full lesson introducing pupils to the periodic table and investigating the properties of metals and non-metals. It was originally delivered to a year 8 class but could easily be adapted for other key stages and year levels. This is designed for a 100 minute lesson but could be broken up into smaller parts. This lesson could also be combined with a practical activity looking at the properties of metals and non-metals. During this lesson, pupils will: Use ISM pictures of metals to begin to infer their properties. Briefly recap the structure of an atom. Look at the periodic table and get a brief overview of its History by watching a video. Identify the information we can get from a periodic table and complete activities to find the different features of some elements. Identify where metals and non-metals are on the periodic table. Use pictures and watch a video to identify and explain some of the properties of metals and non-metals. Use their understanding of the properties of metals and non-metals to decide what some different objects should be made of and why - discussion task. complete a quick knowledge check about the properties of metals.

Group 1: Alkali Metals (KS3 Chemistry) *Full Lesson*

(0)
This is a full lesson investigating the properties of group one metals/Alkali metals. It was originally delivered to a year 8 class but could easily be adapted for other key stages and year levels. This is designed for a 100 minute lesson but could be broken up into smaller parts. This is the second lesson in a series of lessons. The other lessons are also available here. Please note - This lesson contains a demonstration of alkali metals reacting with water so preparation will be needed for that. During the lesson, pupils will: Complete a do now task testing their knowledge using the periodic table (from the previous lesson in the series) Recap information from the previous lesson about the properties of metals and non-metals. Identify the periods and groups on a periodic table and what we can tell about an element by its position on the periodic table. Recap knowledge of structure of an atom and the importance of protons and neutrons. Identify the group one/Alkali metals on the periodic table. Make observations about the reaction between Lithium, Sodium and Potassium and water. Make predictions about the reaction of rubidium and caesium with water. Watch a video to see the reaction and compare it with predictions. Identify the relationship between the position in the group and the reactivity of a group one metal. Compare the properties of group one metals with other metals.

* Full Lesson* Chemistry: Group 7 Elements/Halogens

(0)
This is a full lesson looking at the properties of Halogens in Chemistry. It was originally delivered to a year 8 class but could easily be adapted for other key stages and year levels. This is designed for a 100 minute lesson but could be broken up into smaller parts. During this lesson, pupils will: Recap knowledge of Alkali Metals/Group 1 elements. Begin to identify the properties of halogens (Chlorine) Identify the Halogens on the periodic table Interpret data to deduce the melting and boiling points of halogens. Use melting and boiling point date to decide the state of matter of halogens at room temperature. Watch videos to gain an understanding of the chemical and physical properties of Halogens. Investigate the reactivity of halogens. Investigate displacement reactions of halogens. Write word equations to demonstrate knowledge of displacement reactions.
