Periodic Table of Elements

In our Periodic Table of Elements lesson plan, students learn about the periodic table of elements, including its history and development over time. Students learn how to properly read and interpret the periodic table and name some of the common elements.

Our Periodic Table of Elements lesson plan introduces students to the Periodic Table of Elements, including the history and development of the Periodic Table. During this lesson, students are asked to complete research for an element that they are assigned by their teacher, drawing a picture of the element and answering questions about it. Students are also asked to identify the chemical name for each element using the chemical symbols, demonstrating their understanding of how to use the Periodic Table.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define the Periodic Table of Elements, identify the parts of the table, explain its history, and name many of the common elements shown on the table and their uses.

    Periodic Table of Elements

    I like the information provided. It just wasn't what I was looking for. It would be good as a review for someone teaching the Periodic Table.

    Really appreciate the resources

    There is a great variety of resources for a large range of students. The resources are attractively presented and generally provide a good amount of information for a one-off class on the topic complete with an activity or two. They middle school resources are geared to a student who is a stronger reader, I have found. Nevertheless, I think we’ll be able to use these as a good introduction to our various topics. I’m looking forward to starting one of them soon!
