Then they make the periodic table. They work out the positions of the elements by group and period based on their electronic configurations. They analyse the atomic number to place the element symbol in the correct position. Finally they match the element name with its symbol. Traditional card games like pairs and go fish can also be played to help learn element names and symbols.
