We need to get to know the Periodic Table very well. To help us we will use the following resources (thanks Mr Goodman!) and this link. This site will also be invaluable to recap what we talk about in class.
And here is a homework assignment for you. PT_scavenger_hunt
We will talk about trends and patterns in the periodic table, specifically Group 1 (alkali metals) and Group 7 (halogens). We will make observations about reactions of the alkali metals with water. Li and Na we can do in class, but for the more reactive elements we’ll have to be content with watching this video.
