Here is a 25-question Jeopardy-style game to use as a review with physical science classes on elements, the periodic table, atomic structure, and basic chemical reactions. If there are any questions that you did not cover with your class, or you are not pleased by the overall appearance of the slides (colors, formatting, fonts), you can easily enable editing and make changes as you see fit.

Mystery : Structure of the Atom-A Case for Indirect Evidence
Students investigate the structure of the atom through hands on activities. In this atomic structure lesson, students perform 4 activities showing indirect evidence of the structure of the atom and the parts of the atom. They also list important terms related to the atom and define each.
6th - 8th Science
Guess What? A Lesson About Atoms
Students examine mystery objects to understand that every object is made up of mass.In this mass lesson, students observe, compare and draw inferences about objects and their mass. Students later extend this to the microscopic components (atoms) of objects.
4th - 5th Science
What do Atoms Look Like?
For this atom worksheet, students complete 60 questions about the trends in atoms such as ionization energy and atomic radius, about valence electrons, about the families of elements, about metals, non-metals and semi-metals, about the size of atoms and about the atomic structure of atoms.
9th - 12th Science
Students investigate what is inside three different boxes using indirect observations and relate it to the discovery of the structure of the atom. In this atomic structure lesson plan, students explore the history of atomic structure by experimenting with indirect observations of 3 boxes and testing Rutherford's equation using a box and marbles.
9th - 12th Science
Up and Atom
"Up and Atom" is a mini-unit introducing middle-schoolers to the wonders of elements. Participants draw atom models, examine the periodic table, compare samples of metals to nonmetals, identify unknown elements, and more! The beginning of this unit is based on two videos that you probably do not have, but they are easily left out without detracting from the overall value.
7th - 8th Science
Distinguishing Between Atoms
Every type of question is used to query young chemists about atomic structure. A vocabulary list tops the page before fill in the blanks, true/false, and matching questions are listed. This is a neatly formatted and pertinent activity to assign as review.
8th - 12th Science
Learning About Atoms: Introduction to Protons, Neutrons and Electrons
The highlight of this atom lesson is the link to a midi of "The Addams Family" song. The instructions include it in the anticipatory set, but no lyrics are provided. Perhaps a way to use this would be to have groups work together to write lyrics, making sure to include facts about atomic structure.
The Atom Board - Making Atoms
In this atom learning exercise, chemists learn how to determine the number of protons, neutrons and electrons in an atom using the atomic mass and atomic number. They complete a chart of the subatomic particles and use marbles to represent protons, neutrons and electrons of the 11 atoms as they model each.
5th - 12th Science
AP Chemistry Topic 4: Atomic Structure & The Periodic Table, Part A
Even though there are only six questions on this worksheet, it covers a vast array of concepts dealing with atomic structure. Keep this in your files to use as a reinforcement exercise for your advanced chemistry learners.
10th - 12th Science
Stoichiometry Example Problem 1
The reaction of Phosphorus and Chlorine is the focus of this video on Stoichiometry. Sal sets up a reaction between the two substances, and uses the process of Stoichiometry in order to calculate how many grams of Phosphorus Trichloride will be produced at the end of this chemical reaction.
