Metals are important in many products that we use in our daily lives and they play an important role in many different types of chemical reactions in several biomolecules. This paper presents a specially designed metal-specific question and answer format as a non-formal method of learning. This was developed as an attempt to produce supplementary material in smaller doses to regular classes on foundation courses. The use of this model for the conduct of chemical education provides an opportunity for learning activities beyond textbooks. These self-study questions focus on the metal’s occurrence, extraction, properties, applications, their relationship to living species and environment, and metal-containing substances. The purpose of the questionnaire is to help students in schools and colleges acquire some background information that builds confidence by an open-learning technique. It is so easy for students, particularly those with a minimal chemistry background, to get a feeling for metals in everyday life. This list contains 160-selected short–answer metal-centered questions and includes answers to all questions at the end.
