Element Snap is a wonderful resource to help your students learn about the elements of the periodic table!
This is played using the same principles of the traditional game. The game should be played in groups of 4 to 6 and the deck should be dealt out to each student. Each Element Snap card features an element, its symbol and its atomic number. Each player starts with their decks face down and places cards onto the pile without looking at them beforehand. If a player places a card on top of a card that is identical, whoever snaps the pile fastest wins the round and they add the pile of cards to their existing hand. Keep playing until there are no cards left.
The cards can also be used for a variety of other fun games that will also engage your fast finishing students and reinforce their knowledge of the elements.
The 36 snap cards have a focus on common and well-known elements, making them a fantastic resource for students learning about the elements for the first time, however, they can be used with students across a range of stages and learning levels.
