This is a very brief review intended for students who have been introduced to the basics of chemistry, especially in regards to the periodic table (probably for 6th grade and up). Students will:
- Review what they already know about the periodic table
- Reflect on information/concepts with which they struggle
- Identify major families on the periodic table
- Identify information represented by the periodic table
- Recall information relating to atoms and subatomic particles
- Use recalled information to identify parts of an atom
- Practice collaboration skills by researching an element in groups (which will have to be assigned by an instructor)
- Reflect on the value of the assignment itself

The instructor will need to assign groups and (may need to) set or change time limits for each activity. Directions for each activity are included on each slide of the Jamboard.
This lesson allows students to actively engage with previously learned material and permits better and deeper understanding of the material learned through a variety of activities that appeal to the visual sense while learning and working with their peers.
Happy periodic learning!
