Color hydrogen pink. Is hydrogen an alkali metal? How many valence electrons does hydrogen
Color the alkali metals yellow. Tell me how many valence electrons the alkali metals have.
Color the transition metals blue. Are the transition metals harder or softer than the alkali metals?
Color the boron family (=group) orange. How many valence electrons does the boron family
Color the carbon family green. Tell me how many hydrogen atoms carbon would probably bond
with (Hint: remember the octet rule).
Color the nitrogen family purple. Draw a Lewis Structure for phosphorus.
Leave the chalcogens uncolored. How many valence electrons do the chalcogens have?
“Shade” the halogens with a pencil. Are elements in this group reactive, or non-reactive?
Leave the noble gases uncolored. Elements in the noble gases all have full valence electron
shells. Tell me the only element in the group that does not have 8 valence electrons. Will a balloon
filled with a noble gas explode if it touches fire?
Label the 9 groups on the periodic table that you colored (e.g., noble gases, carbon group,
