Element Name Etymologies
This pub quiz handout round lists 15 things that chemical elements in the periodic table were named after, such as the Greek for "new", the Latin for "lime" and a village in Scotland. Choosing from a mixed up list, the aim for teams is to name the elements that were named after these things. For example, Neon should be matched up to `the Greek for "new"`.
The information in this round could be used to make up standard question and answer rounds (where the quiz-master asks questions aloud and the teams write the answers on blank answer sheets), but it is presented so that it can also be used as a handout round. You can find more information on handout rounds and our recommended use for them in quizzes on our handout rounds page.
If you buy this handout round, we will give you access to pdf files you can download. Two of these will be for the main handout sheet - one as illustrated above, and one in a more plain format. The third sheet will contain the answers. You probably already have everything you need to access and use these rounds in your quiz, but you might want to check our requirements page to make sure.
