Getting To Know the Periodic Table


Objective:†††††† To be able to use the periodic table to identify and classify elements and to use the periodic table to predict the behavior of elements




  1. Number the groups.
  2. Number the periods
  3. Draw a heavy lack line between the metals and nonmetals.
  4. Write the name of each of the following groups above the number:

Group 1 †††††††† alkali metals

Group 2††††††††† alkaline earth metal

Group 3-12††† (collectively) transition metals

Group 16††††††† chalcogens

Group 17††††††† halogens

Group 18††††††† Noble gases

  1. Write the names of the two rows at the bottom of the chart:lanthanides and actinides
  2. Write the symbol of each element that exists as a gas at ordinary conditions in RED.
  3. Write the symbol of each element that is a solid at ordinary conditions in BLACK.
  4. Write the symbol of each element that is a liquid at ordinary condition in BLUE.
  5. Write the symbol of each element that is a man-made element as an outline. Example: Pm
  6. Place the atomic number for each element above the symbol.
  7. Use the following chart to color the periodic table.

Halogen††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† blue

Noble gases††††††††††††††††††††††††† yellow

Alkali metals††††††††††††††††††††††††† purple

Alkaline earth metals††††††††††† red

Transition elementsgreen

Chalcogens†††††††††††††††††††††††††† brown

Lanthanides†††††††††††††††††††††††††† orange

Actinides††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† light blue

  1. Outline the symbolís box in dark green if it is RADIOACTIVE in its most common form.
