5 Rows on the periodic table are called periods Rows on the periodic table are called periods. All the elements listed in a row belong to the same period. There are 7 (seven) periods.
6 Columns in the periodic table are called groups or families Columns in the periodic table are called groups or families. All elements in a group have similar properties.
7 Insert copy of the periodic table. The columns have been given an Arabic number. The columns are numbered 1 – 18 starting at the left and moving to the right. Please make sure that your periodic table has them numbered like this.
8 The outer most energy level is usually not full or complete . Valence ElectronsThe outer most energy level is usually not full or complete .These electrons in the outer energy level are called Valence electrons.Valence electrons are important because they determine how an element will react with other substance.
9 Insert picture of periodic table. Group 1 and 2 the number of Valence electrons in the outer energy level will match the group number.
10 Insert picture of periodic table. Groups 3 through 12 do not follow any particular rule to determine the number of Valence electrons.
11 Insert picture of periodic table. Group 13 to 18 – The Valence electrons for each of these is the group number less 10. For example Group 14 – 10 = 4 Valence electrons.
12 Elements whose atoms gain, lose or share electrons are reactive and they combine to form the many compounds we use in our daily lives.
13 Elements are categorized as metals, nonmetals or metalloids. Metals: An element that has luster, is malleable and ductile, and is said to be a good conductor of heat and electricity.
14 What is luster, malleable and ductile? Luster describes the way a surface reflects light…therefore metallic luster would be shiny like a metal object.Malleable means to be able to press or pound the substance into sheets or different shapes.Ductile means that the substance can be drawn out into thin wires.
15 Elements are categorized as metals, nonmetals or metalloids (cont’). Nonmetals: an element that is usually a gas or a brittle solid at room temperature. It is a poor conductor of heat and electricity.
16 Elements are categorized as metals, nonmetals or metalloids (cont’). Metalloid: an element that shares some characteristics or properties with both metals and nonmetals.
17 Group 1 and 2 Elements:These elements are so reactive that they are only found combined with other elements in nature.

21 Higher density and melting points (except mercury) than Group 1 and 2 Group 3 to 12: Transition MetalsDo not lose their valence electrons as easily as groups 1 & 2.Less reactive than Alkali and Alkaline Earth metalsShinyGood conductors of electricityHigher density and melting points (except mercury) than Group 1 and 2
22 Group 3 to 12: Transition Metals (cont’.) Lanthanides: The first row underneath the periodic table: Shiny, reactive, many are used in the production of steel.Actinides: The second row underneath the periodic table: These elements are all radioactive and unstable..Note: Elements found after 94 (Plutonium) are man made and not found in nature
