- Describe uses of the periodic table. Define valence electrons and tell how they are related to the periodic table
- Describe chemical and physical properties of metals.
- Identify and describe different groups of metals and describe how the reactivity of metals changes across the periodic table.
- Locate nonmetals and metalloids in the periodic table.
- Compare the physical and chemical properties of nonmetals with those of metals and describe the properties of metalloids.
- Explain how carbon can form bonds in many different arrangements.
- List different forms of pure carbon
- Identify the properties many organic compounds have in common.

Labs and Demonstrations:
Sodium and Potassium react with Water
Students will adopt an element to research. They will complete a fact sheet, a poster, and write a jingle. They will be responsible for presenting the information orally to the class.
