Guidelines and worksheets are included in the each section to ensure timely student progress each day. Each student will be given an element to research.

Get Organized, Baby!

Because this Periodic Table sure is! The Periodic Table (PT) is organized into four main regions.  These regions are called metals, nonmetals, metalloids, and Noble Gases. These regions are broken down even further into vertical columns called Groups or Families. Not only is the PT vertically organized, it's got it all together horizontally, too! The horizontal rows tell something about the atomic structure. What, you ask? Discover for yourself by visiting the websites below and completing the Get Organized, Baby worksheet provided by your teacher.
