Today's Quote


In our 8th grade classes we reviewed how to use the periodic table in our discussion of the elements. I pointed out that there is a staircase dark line on the periodic table that begins between Boron and Aluminium. Any element touching that line, except Aluminium, is a Metalloid- elements that have the characteristics of both metal and non- metals.  I also pointedout that the metals fall to the left of the metalloids , (except for hydrogen) and the non- metals fall to the right. 

I pointed out the physical properties of the elements and the chemical properties
