This paper uses "the structure and properties of alkali metal elements as well as their applications in lithium-ion battery" to illustrate the concrete methods in the classroom teaching of elementary chemistry. It is aimed at guiding the students to understand the structure and properties of alkali metal elements and arising their interest in applications of alkali metal elements in lithium-ion battery in the classroom land discussion. The relationships among the structure, chemical performance and applications in lithium-ion battery for alkali metal elements have been discussed in detail. Furthermore, a series of experiments including synthesis and characterization of electrode materials, and fabrication and measurement of devices, will be executed. Finally, the students have also been encouraged to execute "Students Research Training Program, SRTP" in new energy materials related institutes, and in this way the classroom knowledge and scientific research have been linked closely.

Key words: Chemistry of elements, Classroom teaching, Structure, Performance, Lithium-ion battery, Teaching reform
