Periodic Trends

The Periodic Trends Concept Builder challenges learners to use trends in the periodic properties in order to rank three elements according to the relative size of that property. There are three different activities. Each activity focuses on its own periodic property. The properties are Atomic Radius, Ionizaation Energy, and Electronegativity. There are a total of 54 questions organized into 18 different Question Groups. Each activity includes six of these Question Groups. Question-specific help is provided for each of the 18 Question Groups. The built-in score-keeping makes this Concept Builder a perfect candidate for a classroom activity.
