Periodic Table Project

In this lesson, students are given a completely blank periodic table and a long list of steps on how to fill it in. What they’ll end up with is a periodic table was done with their own hand, in their own time, and in their own minds.

In the conclusion they’ll step back and see that, yes, certain regions of the table do indeed predict all sort of patterns. And they’ll point out those patterns for 3 different elements.
