This week, we will continue our new unit about atoms, elements, and the Periodic Table. The students will be learning how to read the Periodic Table, as well as identify the common elements. There were be a 10 question quiz on Friday to identify and correctly spell 10 common elements. The students received the list during class on Monday. I suggest making flashcards and practice writing.
