Instructional Ideas

  • After completing the cards, have learners cut them out and use them as flash cards to study for an element exam
  • Laminate before cutting out, and keep a complete set on hand for pupils to use during in-class review sessions

  • Can be used for a unique activity to reinforce properties of common elements
  • A strong support for Next Generation Science Standard HS-PS1-1
