Purpose: learn about the Periodic Table used in Chemistry
Resources Needed:
Periodic Table Cards
EXAMPLES - a full sheet of cards and a close-up of a single card. 
Notice hydrogen has a split top and should be colored each top half for the 2 groups it belongs to.
grade 7-8
11 pre-printed sheets of elements 1 through 88
scizzors
10 basic colors of colored pencils or crayons (felt pens bleed through too much)
chemistry information from your text and the internet
*work in a group of at least 4 people at all grade levels
grade 9-12 
11 blank white card stock sheets and regular paper to practice on computer to draw element design on-screen
scizzors
10 basic colors of colored pencils or crayons (felt pens bleed through too much)
chemistry information from your text and the internet
*work in a group of at least 4 people at all grade levels
Your Task:
grade 7-8
I.    Cut apart the cards and arrange them on a large table top as seen in the Periodic Table of Elements.
II.   Color top half of the cards for groups I-VIII (from left to right) in the following manner:
*don't color in the characteristics circles
Red = group I Orange = group II Yellow = group III Green = group IV
Blue = group V Violet = group VI Brown = group VII No Color = group VIII
III.  Color bottom half of the cards for periods 1-7 (from top to bottom) in the following manner:
*don't color in the characteristics circles
Red = period 1 Orange = period 2 Yellow = period 3 Green = period 4
Blue = period 5 Violet = period 6 Brown = period 7
*the Lanthanide series belongs to period 7 so the bottom of the card is the same color.
IV.  Read your text and check the Internet to color in the characteristics circles for each element.
Use pencil lightly or black lightly to fill in the circles. Suggested links:

grade 9-12
I.    Design the element cards as shown. Include the element characteristic circles as follows:
All cards have circles for = metal, non-metal, metaloid, transition, alkali earth metals, alkali metals, halogens, and noble gases.
II.   Cut apart the cards and arrange them on a large table top as seen in the Periodic Table of Elements.
III.  Color top half of the cards for groups I-VIII (from left to right) in the following manner:
*don't color in the characteristics circles
Red = group I Orange = group II Yellow = group III Green = group IV
Blue = group V Violet = group VI Brown = group VII No Color = group VIII
VI.  Color bottom half of the cards for periods 1-7 (from top to bottom) in the following manner:
*don't color in the characteristics circles
Red = period 1 Orange = period 2 Yellow = period 3 Green = period 4
Blue = period 5 Violet = period 6 Brown = period 7
*the Lanthanide series belongs to period 7 so the bottom of the card is the same color.
VII. Read your text and check the Internet to color in the characteristics circles for each element.
Use pencil lightly or black lightly to fill in the circles. Suggested links: see table above.
Enrichment 
         *  On back of the card write electron orbitals for the element in full up to Argon, by abbreviation after Argon.
         *  Design a card game like MAGIC with the Periodic Table cards using the properties and characteristics of
             the elements.
