Here's a nice image showing the general trends throughout the periodic table for some physical and chemical properties (i.e. ionisation energy, electronegativity and atomic radius). It might also be useful to have a completed periodic table to hand as well for reference. In the periodic table, the s-block contains the atoms whose valence (outer) electrons are located in s-orbitals, whilst the p-block are those whose valence electrons are in p-shaped orbitals. The s-block is Group 1 and 2 (the two groups/vertical rows to the extreme left) and the p-block is Groups 13-18 (the six groups to the extreme right).
