The Alkali Metals I wanted to display all the key points about each group of elements, in a way that was both clear and engaging for the pupils – as a consequence, the information presented is relatively basic, so that it’s accessible for as many of the year groups as possible. I also tried to include some information regarding uses of the elements or compounds containing them, in order to make it relevant and pique the pupils’ interest.

Rubidium is a chemical element with the symbol Rb and atomic number 37. Rubidium is a soft, silvery-white metallic element of the alkali metal group, with an atomic mass of 85.4678. Elemental rubidium is highly reactive, with properties similar to those of other alkali metals, such as very rapid oxidation in air. #Glogster #Rubidium

Caesium or cesium is a soft, silvery-gold alkali metal with a melting point of 28 °C (82 °F), which makes it one of only five elemental metals that are liquid at (or near) room temperature.[note 2] Caesium is an alkali metal and has physical and chemical properties similar to those of rubidium and potassium. The metal is extremely reactive and pyrophoric, reacting with water even at −116 °C (−177 °F). It is the least electronegative element having a stable isotope, caesium-133.

Rubidium reacting with water. A small piece of rubidium (centre middle) entering a tank of water. Rubidium (Rb) is an highly-reactive alkali metal element that reacts with water to produce the strong base rubidium hydroxide, also releasing hydrogen gas (see subsequent images in this sequence.)
