In the context of the Institutional Program of Scholarships for Initiation to Teaching (PIBID- Programa Institucional de Bolsas de Iniciação à Docência) activities were carried out to promote the insertion of the students (future teachers) into Brazilian public schools, so that they could develop didactic-pedagogical activities under the supervision of a teacher from the school and the guidance of a teacher from their undergraduate course.

One of the activities of the future teachers who worked in the PIBID subproject Nature Sciences, of the Federal Institute of Education, Science and Technology of Rio Grande do Sul (IFRS - Instituto Federal de Educação, Ciência e Tecnologia do Rio Grande do Sul) was to make teaching materials that would help understand the Chemistry contents. We decided to discuss the content, periodical table and periodical properties of the chemical elements due to their importance for teaching and learning Chemistry. Therefore, this work aimed to elaborate a card game about the periodical table and the periodical properties. Creating the game involved six stages: analysis of the target public, research in scientific articles and other lierature, choice of illustrations and content, translation and composition of the content, validation by the main teachers and creation of the game. The result was the elaboration of 118 cards, each one containing information about one of the chemical elements (atomic number, atomic mass, atomic radius, ionization energy, electronegativity and electroaffinity), a graphic representation that shows each of the chemical elements as super heroes and a fact related to the chemical element on each of the cards. The game created will be used in the Chemistry discipline. The purpose of the game is to get all the opponent’s cards. In order to use the game, it is necessary to have at least 2 players, each of them with the same number of cards The first to play will choose one of the periodical properties and both players must choose a card.The one who has the card with the highest value for the periodical property chosen takes the cards and chooses the next property. The game goes on like this, until one of the opponents no longer has any cards in their hands, and loses the game.

Applying this proposal we have the expectation that the use of teaching materials as a support tool will help the teachers during classes, providing an alternative which is more pleasurable and interesting for the learning process.
