Activity 1: Product Labels and its Components

The chemistry of chemical products is indicated in some of the product
labels such as toothpaste, soap, detergents and the like. Even basic
ingredients like salt, water and baking soda, they are often identified on a
product label by technical names.

At the end of the activity, the participants should be able to:
1. Identify the compounds found on the product label
2. Identify the elements in the compounds

1. Identify one compound in the list of ingredients on the product label.
2. Write the chemical formula of the compound.
3. Identify the elements in the compound

Activity 2. BUILD ME UP!

The periodic table of elements arranges all of the known chemical elements in an
informative array. Such arrangement provides information which are beneficial to
explore and understand both the physical and their chemical properties.

At the end of the activity, the participants should be able to:
1. Create a periodic table based on their set criteria
2. Provide an explanation why such fictitious elements were arranged as
reflected on their own created periodic table

Metacards with fictitious elements
Manila paper, pentel pen, masking tape
1. Build/create your own periodic table using the set metacards with fictitious
elements as reflected below.

2. Post your created periodic table in a manila paper for presentation.

Guide Question

1. What is your basis for building/creating your periodic table? Why?


Worksheet 1: Historical Development of the Periodic Table

Guide Questions

1. What basis did Dobereiner use in developing his periodic table?

Newlands’? Mendeleev’s?
2. What were the demerits in Dobereiner’s periodic table? Newlands’ and
3. According to Mendeleev, what do you call the horizontal rows in the
periodic table? What about the vertical columns?

Activity 3. Count Me in!

Atomic Structure Worksheet

Particles that are smaller than the atom
are called subatomic particles. The three
main subatomic particles that form an atom
are protons, neutrons, and electrons. The
center of the atom is called the nucleus.

At the end of the activity, the participants should be able to

1. Determine the number of protons, neutrons and electrons in an atom.

2. Using the worksheet below, fill out the needed sub-atomic particles. Take
note that:

Atomic number = number of protons = number of electrons

Mass number = number of protons + number of neutrons

Bromine 35 35
Iodine 127 53
Sulfur 16 32
Nitrogen 14 7
Oxygen 16 8
Lead 82 82

Guide Question
1. How do you determine the number of neutrons in a neutral atom?



Activity 4: TRENDY

In this activity, you should be able to identify unknown elements represented by
letter codes (A-Z) using established trends in some of their properties, like atomic size
and electronegativity.
Scissors, paste, Table 8.4 (blank periodic table), Figure 8.7

3. Cut out Figure 8.7 into separate squares A-Z
4. Study the information in the squares and the clues below. Locate the proper
position of the elements in Table 8.4.

The following sets of elements belong together in groups but not in order: ZRD,

- Z has an atomic number of 5.

- P has 3 protons.
- J is a noble gas with an atomic number 12 times that of P.
- L belongs to family IIA (Group 2).
- Q is a nonmetal having 16 electrons.
- W is the only liquid nonmetal at room temperature.
- G is a metalloid with atomic number 32.
- Y belongs to family VA (Group 15).
- S is a metal which produces a yellow flame.
- B is a noble gas with an atomic number 2 times of Z.
- T has an atomic mass which is more than that of H.
- D has the largest atomic mass in its group
- M has an atomic number one less that of A.
- N has 14 protons.
- I is an alkali metal with an atomic number of 19.
- R is a metal which is mostly used for kitchen ware.
- F is a gas.
- X has an atomic number one higher than F.
- E is a noble gas.
- O is a nonmetal which combines easily with a certain metal to form table
- U has a total of 6 electrons.
- C has a total of 15 electrons in its neutral state.

5. Examine your work closely. Check if your letter codes are properly arranged
according to the clues given.
6. Paste the squares in place on Table 8.4. Ask your teacher to check your work.
7. Using your corrected periodic table, supply the atomic number and symbol of the
element in the spaces provided on each picture.
Guide Question

2. How do the following properties change within a period? Within a family?

a. Atomic size (atomic radius)
b. Electronegativity
3. Explain why there is an increase in atomic size in descending (top to
bottom) a given family?
