Trends in the Periodic Table
5 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Although many expect elements to become larger as their atomic numbers increase, they actually decrease in size as you move from left to right on the periodic table. The 11th video in a series of 15 generalizes the rules about the trends...
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.
Mendeleev and the Periodic Table
5 mins 6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Two hundred years before Mendeleev created the periodic table, scientists observed patterns in the elements and tried to sort them. The brief first video in a 15-part series explains the development of the periodic table and the many...
Periods and Groups in the Periodic Table
3 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
J is the only letter not in the periodic table. The third video in a 15-part series discusses the periods and groups in the periodic table. It explains how they are assigned to both a period and a group as well as the similarities...
Electron Configuration of the First 20 Elements in the Periodic Table
4 mins 9th - 12th
Why is the periodic table arranged the way it is? As pupils complete the electron configuration of the first 20 elements, they see the relationship to the rows and columns in the periodic table. The video instructor highlights these...
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...
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...
Periodic Table and Atomic Properties
7th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
An in-depth lesson, the fourth activity in a series of 36, begins with teaching how the periodic table's arrangement came to its current design. Using this knowledge, pupils then move on to analyze the arrangement of elements to their...
AP Chemistry Topic 4: Atomic Structure and The Periodic Table, Part B
10th - Higher Ed
Chemistry apprentices show what they know about electronegativity and ionization energy when they complete this activity. They then explain with short answers. Use this as an exercise for your students to evaluate their own understanding.
The Periodic Table
7th - 11th CCSS: Adaptable
Whether you're giving a broad introduction to the periodic table or honing in on particular element groups, this collection will have what you need. I've put the general resources at the front, and resources that focus on particular element groups at the end.
