Use a chemical analysis tool to test properties of elements. Identify key properties of each element such as melting point and boiling point. Sort the elements into categories such as non-metal, metalloid, reactive gas or unreactive gas. Position groups of elements in the periodic table according to their properties. This learning object is one in a series of five objects. The series is also packaged as a combined learning object.
