Elements and the Periodic Table
To the untrained eye, the periodic table may look like a whir of numbers and letters that lack meaning or application to real life. However, this often-confusing mass is really beautiful, organized and, when understood, greatly deepens your understanding of chemistry. Elements and the Periodic Table is a great supplement to your regular science curriculum that helps students make sense of the information-packed periodic table.
This book offers 125 pages of activities that build logically from the explanation of elements to organization of the periodic table, and parents and teachers have permission to copy the activities for family or classroom use. Each of the four chapters begins with an explanation to the instructor and ends with a quiz or test for that chapter. Learn to name the elements, discover the use for each of the elements and put together your own table, and then play the Elements Game to become proficient at the periodic table. Activity answers are at the back of the book for your convenience.
Something I remember from my teaching days is that textbooks can be full of good information, but they don't always offer enough of the hands-on activities for students to understand the application of the material, leaving you to track down activities from outside resources. That is not the case with this book; Elements and the Periodic Table offers great, practical activities to help students understand and apply their learning. ~ Donna
