Periodic Table

Storyboard Text

  • Did you know the periodic table contains many elements that are similar and totally different?
  • Really? Tell me more!
  • Periods
  • This is what the periodic table looks like. Each individual element contains the atomic number, symbol, element name, and atomic mass.
  • Groups
  • The periodic table is organized by periods (left/right) and groups (up/down). 
  • Elements in the same period have the same number of energy levels.  For example, the circle around this carbon atom are called energy levels.  Carbon has 2 energy levels and is located in period 2.
  • P6 N6
  • Another fact is that the atomic # determines the number of protons and electrons!
  • In the periodic table, there is a zigzag line on the right hand side that divides the metals, metalloids, and nonmetals.
  • What are those?
  • -located on the left of the zig zag line -mallueable -ductile -good conductors -shiny/metallic luster -mostly solid but mercury
  • Metals
  • Metalloids
  • -both metal and nonmetal -next to zigzag line
  • These are metals, nonmetals, and metalloids!
  • Nonmetals
  • -Located on right side -brittle -poor conductors -dull luster no one common state of matter
  • The last fact is that there are actually different groups! Group 1= Alkaline metals (highly reactive except hydrgen) Group 2= Alkaline earth metals Group 3-12=transition metals Group 17= Halogens (most reactive) Group 18- noble gases (rarely reactive except helium)
  • Thanks for teaching me about the periodic table!
