With spring just around the corner, your students’ attention will soon be turning to spring break, sunshine and the NCAA basketball tournament. This activity combines the popularity of the March Madness basketball pool with an overview of the periodic table, including the concepts of atomic number, atomic mass, chemical symbols and physical properties of elements. Students will have fun playing the “tournament” as they use the periodic table to find the “winning” element.
