I have one last activity to share with you and I believe this has been my son’s favorite Lego activity of all…
A Periodic Table of Elements made with Legos
To create this table you will need 11 different colors of 2×2 bricks.
- Color 1 – 7 bricks (non-metals, green on our table)
- Color 2 – 6 bricks (alkali metals, dark gray on our table)
- Color 3 – 6 bricks (alkaline earth metals, orange on our table)
- Color 4 – 35 bricks (transition metals, red on our table)
- Color 5 – 3 bricks (synthetic chemicals, light yellow on our table)
- Color 6 – 7 bricks (poor metals, black on our table)
- Color 7 – 7 bricks (metalloids, yellow on our table)
- Color 8 – 5 bricks (halogens, tan on our table)
- Color 9 – 6 bricks (noble gases, white on our table – right column)
- Color 10 – 15 bricks (lanthanoids, blue on our table)
- Color 11 – 15 bricks (actinoids, white on our table – bottom row)
The table layout was based off of this image found on Wikipedia.
