Crossword
Description

Those characteristics that can be observed without changing the identity of the substance such as size, shape, luster, conductivity, malleabilty, and magnetic attraction. Physical Property
Likely to break, snap, or crack when subjected to pressure. Brittle
The amount of matter in a given space or volume, a relationship between mass and volume. Density
A property that describes if heat or electrical charges pass through material easily. Its also one of the most reliable test in sorting materials. Conductivity
The way the surface of a mineral reflects light; either metallic or non-metallic such as silky, dull, glassy, or resinous. Luster
A property that describes the ability of the material to be rolled or hammered into thin sheets. Malleabilty
A property that describes if the material is magnetic. Magnetism
A property that describes if the material has the ability to be pulled into thin wire without breaking. Ductility
The physical forms that matter can take; solid, liquid, gas, or plasma. Phase of Matter
The ability of one substance to be dissolved into another. Solubility
These elements are Poor Conductors of heat and electricity, dull, Brittle solids, Most are gases at room temperature, Low density, Low melting point, Not malleable, and Not ductile. Nonmetal
These elements are Malleable, Ductile, Luster, High Density, Good Conductors of heat and electricity, High melting point, and hardness. Metals
These elements can be shiny or dull, conductivity of heat and electricity are better than nonmetals but not as good as metals. Solid at room temperature. Ductile, and Malleable. Metalloids

Crossword
Description

a substance that cannot be broken down into a simpler substance by ordinary chemical means element
the smallest unit of an element that has all of the properties of the element; basic building block of matter. atom
the number of protons and neutrons in the nucleus of one atom of the element. atomic mass
the number of protons contained in each nucleus of its atoms of the element. atomic number
a horizontal row (left to right) in the periodic table. period
a vertical column (up and down) on the periodic table. group
a chart that organizes information about all of the known elements according to their atomic number. periodic table
describes how likely an element is to form bonds with other elements. reactivity
an element or substance that conducts heat and electricity, is malleable and ductile and has low ionization energy and low electronegativity values. Metals metal
an element that does not conduct electricity or heat and is usually a gas at room temperature. Nonmetals are brittle, have high ionization energies and high electronegativity values. Nonmetals tend to gain electrons to form anions nonmetal
group 1 metals on the periodic table that contain 1 valence electron and lose their valence electrons the most easily, making them the most reactive metals. alkali metals
group 1 metals on the periodic table that contain 2 valence electrons and are the second most reactive metals. alkaline earth metals
group 3-­12 on the periodic table. They have varying valence electrons and do not follow the normal trends of the other metals. They form brightly colored compounds and ions in solution. transition metals
group 17 nonmetals on the periodic table that contain 7 valence electrons. They only need to gain 1 valence electron to have a stable octet. They gain valence electrons the most readily, making them the most reactive nonmetals. halogens
group 18 elements on the periodic table that contain 8 valence electrons (He has 2) and a full valence shell making them very stable and inert. noble gases
