Here's a taster:

Electron Arrangements
Elements in the same group have the same number of
electrons in the outer shell.
This also corresponds to their group number.
For example...
All metals in group 1 have 1 electron in their outer
shell.…read more

Here's a taster:

Electron Shell Arrangements
As you move down through the periods, an extra
electron shell is added.
For example:
In period 1, there is 1 shell.
In period 2, there is 2 shells.
And so on.…read more

1) Soft
2) Can be easily cut with a knife
3) React with water…read more

Here's a taster:

Group 1 ­ The Alkali Metals
Density increases as you go down the group
Reactivity increases as you go down the group ­ this
is because the electrons are further away from the
nucleus and so any extra electrons aren't attracted as
much
They all react with water to form an alkali…read more
