Periodic Table Card Analysis

Complete the cards and table

  1. Obtain a periodic table card sheet from your instructor.
  2. Use your periodic table to complete the card's Bohr diagrams.
  3. On the properties side of the cards:
    1. Use your periodic table to record if the element is a metal, non-metal or metalloid.
    2. Use the instructor's properties cards to record the physical and chemical properties for each element.
  4. If you have time to complete the next two steps, cut the cards apart.
  5. On a large sheet of paper, arrange the cards, properties side up, as you see in the periodic table. Do not leave a big gap between columns 2A and 3A.
  6. Tape the cards to the sheet of paper with a small piece of tape on one side of the card.
  7. Label the rows (periods) of cards 1, 2 and 3.
  8. Label the columns (groups) of cards 1A, 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A, 6A, 7A, 8A.
  9. Ask your instructor for instructions before proceeding with the observations.

Observations

Examine the cards and record the following observations:

Analysis

  1. What is the effect of the number of electron shells on an element being metallic?  






  2. What is the effect of the number of valence electrons on an element being metallic? 






  3. What is the effect of the number of electron shells on an element's reactivity? 






  4. What is the effect of the number of valence electrons on an element's reactivity?
