Student activity

This resource is a class research task for KS3 students studying the periodic table. The PowerPoint introduces the activity. The aim is to build a class dictionary of the elements of the Periodic Table.

Assign each student or group of students one or more elements to research. They then create a slide for each element which can be combined into one PowerPoint or print out each slide to display as mini-posters or put them into a folder for reference.

Easily differentiated by varying the number of elements each student should research and by the amount of detail required for each.

There are three example slides at the end of the presentation. This would be perfect as an extended homework task or as a cover lesson.
