For our periodic table trends unit, our chemistry department usually have the kids label and color a periodic table. The problem is there’s so much information that it becomes very messy. A coworker and I came up with this idea. The pictures here are my example that I showed my kids.
We copied some blank periodic tables on some old transparencies that were just sitting around. Students did half of the labeling and the coloring on their paper copies. Then the other half of the labeling was done with wet-erase markers on the transparencies. When they’re done, they line up the paper copy and the transparencies. To put them together, some students punched holes and tied them together with strings. Others just stapled them.
