The periodic table is split by groups and periods, each element is different from the other
Groups are going up and down, while periods are left to right
Metals are on the left and middle sides of the periodic table. Metals are usually shiny, solid, and are good conductors. Examples include: Copper, Iron, and Gold. uses are for many things from buildings, to rings, to machines
Non-Metals are located at the right of the periodic table. non-metal properties are dull, not ductile, no luster, and poor conductors. They are used for fuels and are in the air we breathe.

Metalloids look like metals, but behave mostly like non-metals. They are solid at room temp, and are shiny on the outside. But they only conduct in the rights conditions and aren't malleable
Metalloids are used to make computer chips and make fire retardant plastics for rockets and other things.
Metalloids are found where non-metals and metals meet each other. Metalloids are the mix between metal and non-metal
