It seems to have been a week for excellent resources appearing on my desktop. This post looks at four websites that focus on the periodic table (thanks to free stuff for teachers)
1. The periodic table of videos - http://www.periodicvideos.com/# this has appeared in my blog before but is worth a second (or even third visit). This site has video clips for each of the elements (the clips are hosted on youtube). Produced by the University of Nottingham this is an excellent resources (bandwidth permitting)
2. The periodic table of comicbooks - http://www.uky.edu/Projects/Chemcomics/index.html this is a little different. Select your element and you ahve a choice of comic books to examine relating to the atom in question. Different but worth a visit. Produced by the University of Kentucky.
3. The Elements - http://periodictable.com/ this sight has a cool mouse over that loads interesting facts and images as you hover over the members of the periodic table. Click on the link and it brings up a page of data.
4. Periodic table tetris - http://www.echalk.co.uk/tasters/taster4/taster.html this is fun play tetris and correctly position the element in the periodic table. Good for engaging kids in learning.
