Our lesson topic this week was on the families of the periodic table. My students were given "Periodic Parts" and had to place them together to best represent the periodic table. They were instructed to color each family a different color or pattern. Students also had to label the number of valence electrons each family/group has and the number of energy levels for each period. Specific information was recorded for Alkali Metals, Alkaline Earth Metals, the Halogens, and the Noble Gases.
