Displacement Reactions of Metals
Chemistry stars experiment with metals to observe reactivity with salt solutions. They test magnesium, zinc, iron, and copper by immersing them into different solutions and observing for changes. A separate set of data tables is provided, but learners are also instructed to copy the table into a lab journal.

Transition Metals (II)
Students discuss transition metals, their properties, and where they are located on the periodic table as well as why transition metals are ideal for coins. After discussion, they conduct an experiment using copper in the form of old pennies and discover the chemical reaction that takes place between copper and oxygen.

Periodic Table of the Elements Transition Metals III
Learners investigate properties of transition metals. In this chemical reaction lesson, students study the properties of transition metals. They will predict and observe a chemical reaction using a transition metal and explain how the chemical reaction observed is a property of the transition metal.

Transition Metals (III)
Students discuss transition metals, where they are located on the periodic table, some of the element in the group, and some characteristics of the group. They work in groups to conduct an experiment in which they mix transition metals and water together to create a homemade hand warmer.

Displacement Reactions of Metals
In this displacement reaction of metals worksheet, students experiment with 4 different metals and 4 different sulphate solutions to determine the reactivity of each metal. Students use their data to determine the number of times a metal was coated by the metal of the sulphate solution and they write a chemical reaction for each of the reactions.

Metals and Non-metals
A half-page chart compares the properties of metals and nonmetals. Properties include appearance, melting and boiling point, density, strength, malleability, ductility, heat and electrical conductivity, and the nature of their oxides. There are no exercises to perform, but this would be a nice cheat-sheet to help young chemists learn the properties of metals and nonmetals.

Amazing metals: Nevada quarter reverse
Nevada's nickname is "The Silver State" and metal is what this activity is all about. Pupils will make a T-chart to discuss the differences between metals and minerals, then write and explain the properties of metal. They will get into pairs to observe and analyze several objects, noting their luster, malleability, hardness, conductivity, and color.
