Teaching the Periodic Table

We’re no where near teaching the periodic table, but I came upon this in my HEAV newsletter and thought I would share it.

“1.4 Free Lessons on the Periodic Table – Begins Soon

A science teacher turned homeschool mom is offering a free series of lessons for all ages on the elements of the periodic table. She hopes to introduce the subject to children early and teach them (and their parents) not to fear science or to view chemistry as a “harder” science. After all, chemistry makes up the world all around us!

The lessons will be in the form of a newsletter sent twice a month. Each newsletter will focus on one element, sharing such things as the history of the element’s discovery, interesting facts related to the element, information for the advanced learner, activities, and anecdotes/jokes common in the chemistry field or that pertain to the element. Each installment will also offer ideas for presenting the element to your children and both educational and humorous links for further reading and information about all sorts of topics.

See the website for more information and to sign up for the free lessons newsletter.
