Activity Overview


When introducing students to a new unit, it's key for them to practice using new vocabulary properly in context. Students will find that using visual aids helps them understand abstract concepts, and provides something tangible to remind them what the term means.

Before diving into your unit on the periodic table, have students create visual vocabulary boards! Below is a list of suggested words for students to start with, but you can provide them with additional words depending on their level.
