Recommended Grade Level(s): Appropriate for: High School Chemistry Students Time Requirements: Prep Time: 5–10 minutes Activity Time: 45–60 minutes Teaching Topics & Concepts: Electron Configurations National Science Standards Alignment PS1-1, PS1-2, PS3-2. Materials: • 2 Periodic Tables • 2 Different colored pens/markers • 1 Manila folder to act as a game board • Paper clips Background Information, Activity Setup: This activity is called Electron Configuration Battleship. Each student will receive the materials listed above. On one of the periodic tables the students will place their battleships (use a marker to outline the location of the periodic table where their ship will be placed). The students will place 8 battleships: 3 Destroyers each occupying 2 spaces, 3 Cruisers each occupying 3 spaces, and 2 Battleships each occupying 4 spaces. Once the students have placed their ships on their Periodic Table, the students will use the 2nd Periodic Table to keep track of their hits and misses. The students will take turns saying the electron configuration of an element. If their opponent has a ship in that spot of the element, it would be a "hit". If there is no ship occupying the spot of that element, it would be a "miss". The game can proceed for an entire class period or more…depending on how long you want the kids to practice electron configurations!
