Chemistry, at first glance seems ho-hum, right? But when you consider that baking is chemistry, the science suddenly becomes much more interesting, don’t you think? And when you visit this Periodic Table of the Elements, chemistry and science in general are interesting enough to be kind of fun.
This Periodic Table of the Elements is “dynamic,” meaning, the chart knows where your cursor is and provides more information on the element you are hovering over. Also, you can click on an element, finding out more about each one. It’s worth checking out! Set the kids loose at the site and maybe you won’t have to teach any other chemistry beyond baking.
To better understand how to get the most out of this periodic table, and to see why it is different from other periodic tables, watch this YouTube video.
Here’s a free .pdf of the Periodic Table of the Elements to print out and display on the wall.
If you need a chemistry curriculum, see what you think of this one.
These chemistry lesson plans let you play with Legos, while still calling it “school.”
