Alkali Metals are found on the far left of the periodic table (aside from hydrogen). They include Lithium, Potassium, Sodium, Rubidium, Cesium, and Francium. They are very reactive metals, and are all a silvery-white color.

Alkaline Earth Metals are found next to the Alkali metals on the periodic table. They include Beryllium, Magnesium, Calcium, Strontium, Barium, and Radium. They are also all silvery-white, and are sort-of reactive.

Metals make up the majority of the periodic table. They vary in color and hardness. Most metals are good conductors of electricity and heat.
Big image
Transition metals are found in the middle of the periodic table. Most are silvery and shiny, and also hard.
Big image
Metalloids are elements that have properties of both metals and nonmetals. They are found towards the right side of the periodic table.
Big image
Actinides are the elements below the row of lanthanides. They are all radioactive and some do not occur in nature.
Big image
Lanthanides are in the row above Actinides. They are called Lanthanides because they are chemically similar to the element Lanthanum.

Halogens are located on the right of the periodic table. They are the only group with three elements in different states of matter at room temperature.
Big image
Nonmetals are found on the right side of the periodic, and hydrogen is in the top left corner. They are good insulators of heat and electricity.

Noble Gases are found on the far right of the periodic table. They don't react with anything.
