# Periodic Table LDC 3D Periodic Trends Activity Instruction

```3-D Periodic Trend Model Activity
Each group will create a three dimensional periodic table that satisfactorily illustrates the
assigned periodic property of the elements.
Instructions:
 Use the 96 well-plate as a base to support drinking straws.
 Determine a reasonable scale for the length of straws to correspond to the needed
values:
o atomic radii (1cm = 10pm)
o ionic radii (1cm = 10pm)
o ionization energy (1 cm = 100 kJ/mol; example 1312 kJ/mol = 13.1 cm)
o electronegativity (1 inch = 1 electronegativity value)
 Cut the straws to the appropriate length for each element in Table I (Part I).
 Place straws in sequence in the well plate to create a 3-D graph of the trend. Use the
illustrations below for placing the straws in the well plate:
