Students will be able to determine like properties for elements of the same group. Students will be able to determine the protons, neutrons, electrons, valence electrons, atomic number and atomic mass for all the elements on the Periodic Table, using only the information given on any Periodic Table.


Using the internet and accessing this wikispace, the student's will follow the directions for the Period Table lesson activity. The student's can work at their own speed and ability. There is a link to an interactive element / symbol game for review.
