Reactivity and the Periodic Table

Unit 4: Compounds
Lesson 1 of 8

Objective: Students will be able to relate the position of an element on the periodic table to its relative reactivity.

Big Idea: Variation in the reactivity of different elements is due to variations in valence shell electron configurations. Group 1 and 2 elements are more reactive than transition metals.
