Periodic Trends: Why Can't I Get Any Francium?
12 mins 9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
We are family! Why are elements in the same group so similar in many ways? Science scholars explore the relationship between valence electrons and an element's characteristics through a video from the JFR Science playlist. The narrator...
Atomic Structure and the Periodic Table of Elements: The Secret Agent Lab
9th - 12th
Food always gets attention! Model atomic structure using fruit loops to represent the subatomic particles. After building models, scholars create ionic bonds using their models. Finally, they use these concepts to create a periodic table.
Module 6: Modeling Periodic Behavior
10th - 12th CCSS: Designed
Around and around we go ... again, and again, and again, and again! That's the nature of a periodic function. Young scholars learn how to model a periodic pattern with trigonometric functions. The nine-lesson unit explores the connection...
Group 1 as an Example of Groups in the Periodic Table
2 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Will you teach about alkali metals? Na! The fourth video in a 15-part series covers the first group on the periodic table, explains how these elements are related, and which properties they have in common. Also included is a brief...
Matter and the Periodic Table Chemical Families and Periodic Trends
7th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Is assembling the periodic table as simple as Tetris? Scholars arrange colored cards into a logical order and then make connections to the arrangement of the periodic table. Hands-on activities include adding trend arrows and analyzing...
Finding Volume: The Water Displacement Method
6th - 8th CCSS: Designed
We have formulas for finding the volume of geometric shapes, but what if the shape is irregular? Lesson describes how to find volume through water displacement. After a demonstration, scholars practice in small groups. Then analysis...
Trends and Patterns of Properties in the Periodic Table
9th - 12th
What does a doctor do to his patients? Curium, Helium, or Barium. If chemistry scholars need to understand more about the periodic table than just puns, this presentation could help. It covers the trends, patterns, and properties of...
Hydrophobic Surfaces—Deposition and Analysis
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Couches, carpets, and even computer keyboards now advertise they are spill-resistant, but what does that mean? Scholars use physical and chemical methods to coat surfaces with thin films to test their hydrophobic properties. Then they...
