What is that Element?
- Aligned to Next Generation science standards (NGSS)
- Investigate physical and chemical properties of elements
In this introductory laboratory, students will investigate how each element on the periodic table has unique physical and chemical properties that allows for them to be classified as either a nonmetal, metal or metalloid. Students explore the unique characteristics of different elements such as color, luster, overall appearance, malleability, conductivity and various chemical reactions in order to categorize elements into groups and eventually make generalizations about the properties of metals, nonmetals and metalloids.
