The Periodic Table: What Does It All Mean?

Unit 4: How It All Happens: An Introduction To Biochemistry
Lesson 2 of 11

Objective: SWBAT use the periodic table to determine atomic composition and predict trends in chemical reactions between groups.

Big Idea: The elements on the periodic table are the building blocks of Biochemistry. Today we start laying the foundation of our understanding of how these elements cause chemical reactions that enable us to live!
