patterns in PT

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.
