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
- Number the groups.
- Number the periods
- Draw a heavy lack line between the metals and nonmetals.
- 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
- Write the names of the two rows at the bottom of the chart: lanthanides and actinides
- Write the symbol of each element that exists as a gas at ordinary conditions in RED.
- Write the symbol of each element that is a solid at ordinary conditions in BLACK.
- Write the symbol of each element that is a liquid at ordinary condition in BLUE.
- Write the symbol of each element that is a man-made element as an outline. Example: Pm
- Place the atomic number for each element above the symbol.
- Use the following chart to color the periodic table.
Noble gases yellow
Alkali metals purple
Alkaline earth metals red
Transition elements green
Actinides light blue
- Outline the symbol’s box in dark green if it is RADIOACTIVE in its most common form.
