Discovering Elements online Students will work independently and in small groups to research assigned elements on the internet with sites given in advance. They will then contribute to a class database with their individual information. The database will then be made available for students to again work independently and in pairs to answer questions created from a class discussion to discover relationships about the elements. (also supports Tech COS 5, 14)
The Periodic Table This lesson provides knowledge about periodic law, groups and periods. Students will be able to identify and label each group with their names. Students will be able to relate atomic number and atomic masses of different elements of periodic table. Students will also be able to discuss periodicity of different properties of elements.
Periodic Table Database These lessons are designed to help students use their computer skills to create their own database using teacher directions, and they also learn how to read the Periodic Table and understand what it means. (also supports Tech COS 5)
