2. TARSIA PUZZLE: Tarsia puzzles are a great way to review vocabulary terms. Students arrange the puzzle so the vocabulary word is on one triangle, and the matching definition is on the complementary triangle. You can find the puzzle here.
4. BATTLESHIP: I came across this periodic table battleship idea and thought it looked so fun! I haven’t tried it with students but I bet they would love it. You can find the directions here.
6. BUILD A TABLE: Looking for a class project (and some free classroom decor?) Have students research an element and build a periodic table on your classroom wall. You can find this free lesson from Crazy Science Lady on TpT.
8. CHOICE BOARD: Choice boards are great end-of-unit activities students can work on. If you have students that finish their work quickly and have some time to fill, check out this digital choice board.
10. PTABLE: Looking for a deeper dive into the periodic table? Head to ptable.com. Aside from just the basics, you can check out an element’s electronegativity value, melting point, boiling point, density, and more. (You can also download some lesson ideas that go with this site here).
