Periodic Table Activity Bundle – This activity bundle contains three activities on the Periodic Table and will save you 40%. Please read on for the description of each.
1) Periodic Table WebQuest and Element Assignment:
Periodic Table WebQuest and Element Assignment. This assignment is in two parts, a WebQuest where students go to specific websites to find answers to the 22 questions. The second part is an element research assignment where they are assigned an element, research it and create a summary presentation.
The WebQuest comes with a complete answer key and the Element Assignment a detailed rubric which looks at the students presentation skills as well as content, layout and more.
The tasks will take from 2-4 days depending on how long you allocate for student presentations.
Works well as an introduction to the periodic table, as review and/or as an assessment.
– Student WebQuest (22 Questions) with Answer Key

“Students love technology! This was an excellent way for students to hone research and presentation skills and incorporated many learning styles.”
“Awesome activity! A great way to keep my students engaged.”
“My 9th-grade physical science class really enjoyed this assignment!”
“Extremely thorough! Thank you so much!”
2) Periodic Table Task Card Activity:
This 15 Periodic Table and Elements Task Card resource allows your students to review concepts involving Elements, Rows, Groups, Atomic Mass and Families. Example Questions Include: Question 1: Silicon is a ______ found in group _____. Question 2: This collection of elements on the periodic table conducts heat and electricity well.
This resource is very unique. It can be utilized in a clue gathering, puzzle solving, highly active and engaging activity for those learning about The Periodic Table and its Elements or as an alternative to worksheet review. Whether you do it as a whole class game or as a worksheet your students will actually want to get done, your students will want to finish so that they are able to solve the puzzle. The students must answer 15 questions and match their answer with the word(s) on the Task Card Review Game Word Chart. Once the correctly matched words are put in order (answer to #1, #2, etc.), they will display a motivational quote.
Do you use Science Workshops in your class? These would be perfect! All answers are included and the game is really easy to understand.
I’ve also included a simple word document which just contains the questions and answers. I usually give this out to my students after we’ve completed the activity for them to review at home.
– 15 Task Cards
– Student worksheet
– Teacher answer key
– Task Card Review Game Word Chart
– A complete answer chart for teacher and/or student use
Overview: There are two ways to use these cards
1) Task card review game – lots of fun!
– Students are placed in groups of two and have to work their way through the task cards. Each task card answer leads the student to a clue (a word).
– Once the group has completed each task card they will have enough clues to solve the puzzle.
– Once the group has solved the puzzle, they are the winner.
2) Engaging Worksheet Review with a goal
– Give out the Question Sheet and Task Card Review Game Word Chart
– Engage your students and have them want to complete their homework so they can solve the quote. This works in very much the same way as the game above except it can be done individually (or in pairs) as seat work or homework
– The students must answer the question then match their answer with the word(s) on the Task Card Review Game Word Chart. Once the correct matched words are put in order (answer to #1, #2, etc.), they will display a motivational quote.
– It really gets the kids interested and wanting to finish as they are rewarded with the answer
