Learning Activity

Now is your chance to get acquainted with your new best friend, the periodic table (and those first 20 elements!). Color in the periodic table below using Paint or a similar program (you may also print and scan it), and upload it to ThinkWave.

Each box with a diagonal line running through it should be marked as both a metal/nonmetal/metalloid AND according to its family, as illustrated in the example. Those with no diagonal line need only be marked as a metal/nonmetal/metalloid. Choose distinct colors for each classification, and be sure to indicate which you used by filling in the boxes in the key.

Also fill in the chemical symbol of the first 20 elements (since you don't have to memorize them, you can just look them up online). Have fun!
