Both of my sons will be or are currently studying chemistry. We are going to do a unit together to cover the periodic table. I especially want to do this with my high school age son before we get into the nitty gritty of chemical formulas and the like. I am hoping to capture his interest this way and then move into the harder material.
Here are a few of the resources we will be using:
The Mystery of the Periodic Table (Living History Library) We have read this book before when the kids were much younger. It got too technical at the end for their ages back then. We are going to try it again for a quick review.
Videos for each element!
Worksheets to get familiar with the table
The Periodic Table Game
The Elements: A Visual Exploration of Every Known Atom in the Universe
And just for some fun (we aren't going to do these, but I thought they were cute)...
The Periodic Table in Cookie Form
Or How About Cupcakes????
