Understanding the Periodic Table of Elements
The students will be able to describe the features and organization of the Periodic Table of Elements through the use of PBS Learning Media resources and teacher-created learning activities. The students will learn about chemical symbols, atomic numbers, atomic mass, element groups, element families, and element periods. The students will create a presentation to demonstrate their understanding of the essential question.
How can you describe the organization of the periodic table by using information about elements (including chemical symbol, atomic number, atomic mass, and group/family)?
