Periodic Table of Elements

We have watched a great video, Hunting the Elements and taken notes on the radioactive elements and synthetic elements.

We have color coded the family groups of elements on the table and reviewed the properties they have in common.

So now, we are working in groups to get to know a few elements that are representative of their family groups.

Once your group has finished the research, you will present this information to your peers.
 They will take the notes on their copies of the element "trading cards."

These will be used for you and your table partner to build a basic version of the periodic table to use for your partner quiz on Friday.

Go to Google Classroom to get more details...

Radioactive Dating

No, it's not about socializing...
We're watching a short video about Marie Curie and the elements she discovered.  Then we are doing a little discovery activity about half-life.  Finally, do your reading on radioactive elements and complete the notetaking guide to explain what exactly is coming out of radioactive elements and we use them.
