An Educational Card Game for Learning Families of Chemical Elements
Mariscal, Antonio Joaquin Franco; Martinez, Jose Maria Oliva; Marquez, Serafin Bernal
Journal of Chemical Education, v89 n8 p1044-1046 Aug 2012
This paper describes an educational card game designed to help high school students (grade 10, 15-16 years old) "understand," as opposed to memorize, the periodic table. The game may also be used to identify different chemical elements found in daily life objects. As an additional value, students learn the names and symbols of the displayed elements and may recognize typical compounds formed by them. The game is well received by students and engages them more intensely and for a longer period than the other activities with which it is compared. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
