Elements in Action
Make atom studies more interesting and applicable with these chemical element group cards and matching cards with the names and symbols. Working with these plastic element name and symbol cards will strengthen understanding and recall of 50 elements grouped according to their shared characteristics. The groups include chemical groups such as alkali metals and halogens, and functional groups such as elements of the atmosphere and elements of living things. Copy the element group cards onto cardstock to go in the classroom along with the plastic element names and symbols; you can also copy them onto plain paper to make individual booklets in which children can write the names and symbols.
This set also includes a small periodic table that you can copy for children to use as they locate the element groups in relation to other elements.
