Teach your students about the elements and the periodic table with two prelab exercises and two hands-on laboratory activities. Students use the large fold-over periodic tables supplied to gather information on element symbols, names and atomic numbers. Students then do the ultimate element crossword puzzle, a fun learning activity that provides interesting clues about the 62 elements in the puzzle.
- In Lab 1, students compare the reactivity of two alkaline earth metals, making both qualitative and quantitative observations.
- In Lab 2, students investigate trends in the solubility of four alkaline earth metal cations by combining each cation with five different chemicals, making observations and writing equations for reactions that occur.
Includes 12 different chemicals, 120 reusable pipets, 12 Flinn 11" x 17" fold-over four-color periodic tables, detailed Teacher Notes and reproducible student handouts, including data tables and post-lab questions.
Complete for 24 students working in pairs. Twelve reusable 24-well reaction plates are required and available separately.
