Metals and non metals

Take out your planners and open to the periodic table Identify 5 metals

Metals and non metals

Reactivity series
Draw the reactivity series in books from least reactive to most reactive. You will be answering questions on this on the next slide

1.Which metal is the most reactive? 2.Which metal is the least reactive?

3.Which metal is used for plumbing pipes and why? 4.Which metal is used for jewellery and why?
5.Name a metal that is more reactive than gold 6.Name a metal that is less reactive than gold

7.Write the chemical symbols for these metals

Properties of metals

Lustrous Flexible Ductile

All metals are shiny when polished or freshly cut Metals do not break they bend Metals can be drawn into wires


Metals can be hammered into sheets

Metals ring like a bell when hit - they do not make a dull thud All metals conduct electricity Metals allow energy to flow through them, causing heating

Electrical conductor Thermal conductor

Metal Reactions
When metals react with OXYGEN in the air, they ________ make compounds called OXIDES ________.



Magnesium Copper

+ Oxygen

Magnesium Oxide Copper Oxide

Many metals burn in oxygen with brightly coloured flames. We use them to make FIREWORKS.

Investigate what happens when you burn magnesium in air
