Periodic Table Battleship

Periodic Table Battleship
I have posted a lot about Chemistry lately. My oldest has been studying it and really enjoying it. I love his science-y mind! Today I have a really fun & simple chemistry game to share. We played Periodic Table Battleship! This game can be played even by kids who know nothing about the Periodic Table Yet. To make the game, print out 4 copies of the Periodic Table. The kids can then mark where they want to place their ships by circling rows of 2, 3, 4, and 5 elements on the lower table.. ** I used coordinates because my 8-year-old was scared of trying to read all of the elements, but after they got going they were just calling out elements names instead of the letters and numbers. By reader request, we made a video of how to play! Also, Buy a physical copy of the game! Like this post? I also made some Chemical Compound Flash Cards you can purchase in my shop.

Resource: Everyday Exploration of Chemical Compounds InfoGraph Cards A resource blog, developed by a UK-based Newly Qualified Teacher, is gaining respectable notoriety with teachers and parents alike due to the accessibility of resource/revision cards (or can be printed out as posters) designed to help develop understanding of chemistry and chemical processes. Speaking to UKEdChat, the author of the resource said, “The site started off the back of a series of posters I made for my classroom to showcase the different groups of elements in the Periodic Table. A few people mentioned that they’d like copies, so I created the site in order to share the files for free. It pretty much escalated from there – a lot of people on twitter downloaded the files and used them in their own classrooms, and I also created a set of teaching versions of the elements graphics, with information missing, to be used in research tasks.”

Creative Chemistry - Anodising Aluminium Student notes There are four stages, preparing the aluminium, preparing the anodising cell, anodising, and dyeing. Preparing the aluminium Using the scissors, cut out a piece of aluminium from your can. Watch out for sharp edges! Paper Plate Weaving How To I have to confess, that there are not “many paper plate crafts” on Red Ted Art yet. I am not sure why, but paper plates are not something we have in our house. But it was it was time to change that……… especially as it is such a fun material to work with. The first thing we decided to have a go at, where those gorgeous Paper Plate Weaving crafts. Weaving is something we have wanted to do for a while and combining it with a paper plate is just perfect. (We are really “into” using wool for crafting at the moment.

Some of The Best YouTube Channels for Physics and Chemistry Teachers July 11, 2015 Science in general is all about understanding how the world around us functions. It investigates the laws governing the internal workings of the universe and attempts to prove or disprove theories and assumption pertaining to it. For students, understanding scientific phenomena is integral to their overall intellectual and cognitive growth. It thrusts them into a world of exploration and problem solving and, most important of all, it unleashes their creativity and satiates their curious and probing minds.

February 20 - On This Day in Chemistry He predicted the existence of the noble gases before they were discovered. He was also interested in thermochemistry, measuring the heat produced from around 3,500 chemical reactions.

The idea originated from this woven yarn gift topper which you can see at giverslog.com and from this image which comes from the book More Last Minute Knitted Gifts.

29jun_experiman The fourth competition, linked to the chat and video "Science: where can it take you?" is open from 29 May 2013 until 29 June 2013. This time the competition will be for teachers and for students. Teachers: are invited to submit a lessons plan (one lesson, or a sequence of lessons) using the video "Science: where can it take you?". paper decorations {winter edition} Here are some Christmas decorations inspired by the good old British weather! We’re putting the tree up this weekend so more decorations to come over the next week. When do you normally put yours up? (When I was little it was usually a Christmas eve job but nowadays my neighbourhood seems to go for December 1st!). (BTW: Don’t forget to put your loop of thread in before sticking the models together – I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve done that!) Templates – – – – – – – –

Database of Periodic Tables There are hundreds of periodic tables in web space, but there is only one comprehensive database of periodic tables & periodic system formulations. If you know of an interesting periodic table that is missing, please contact the database curator: Dr Mark R Leach.
