```The Periodic Table
Periods
•Each row is called a “period”
•The elements in each period have
the same number of shells
www.chem4kids.com
Groups
Group 1 = 1 electron
Group 2 = 2 electrons
Group 8 = 8 electrons
Except for He, it has 2
electrons
•Each column is
called a “group”
•Each element in a
group has the same
number of electrons
in their outer orbital,
also known as
“shells”.
•The electrons in the outer
shell are called “valence
electrons”
www.chem4kids.com
Transition Metals
•Transition Metals
have slightly
different rules for
shells and
valence
electrons.
•This is
something you
will learn about in
High School
Chemistry.
www.chem4kids.com
Determine the number of shells and the
number of valence electrons for:
2nd Period = 2 shells
4th Group =
4 valence
electrons
www.chem4kids.com
Determine the number of shells and the
number of valence electrons for:
3rd Period = 3 shells
www.chem4kids.com
1st Group =
1 valence
electron

Helium
1st Period = 1 shell
8th Group = 2 valence
electrons
• Helium is the exception in Group 8.
• Since it has just one shell, that shell
can only fit 2 electrons instead of 8.
• It is in this group because all the
elements have a full outer shell.

The Atom and Periodic Table
How to Draw Lewis
Structures
www.middleschoolscience.com 2008
Lewis Structures
1) Find your element on the periodic table.
2) Determine the number of valence electrons.
3) This is how many electrons you will draw.
Lewis Structures
• Find out which group
(column) your element is
in.
• This will tell you the
number of valence
electrons your element
has.
• You will only draw the
valence electrons.

Groups - Review
Group 1 = 1 electron
Group 2 = 2 electrons
Group 8 = 8 electrons
Except for He, it has 2
electrons
•Each column is
called a “group”
•Each element in a
group has the same
number of electrons
in their outer orbital,
also known as
“shells”.
www.chem4kids.com
•The electrons in the
outer shell are called
“valence electrons”
Lewis Structures
1) Write the element
symbol.
2) Carbon is in the 4th
group, so it has 4
valence electrons.
3) Starting at the right,
draw 4 electrons, or
dots, counterclockwise around the
element symbol.
Lewis Structures
1) Check your work.
2) Using your periodic
table, check that
Carbon is in the 4th
group.
3) You should have 4
total electrons, or
dots, drawn in for
Carbon.
