The question asks "Why are s-block metals typically more reactive than p-block metals?" I think we discussed this topic a little bit in class today with how the size of them makes them react more? I'm not exactly sure though. Can someone by chance help?

The more reactive nature of s-block metals compared to p-block metals actually has to do with the lower ionization energies of s-block metals. Their lower first ionization energies make them more likely to lose an electron and thus be more reactive.
