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.”

iPads + Water Rockets = Fun Science & Math Lesson This morning I stopped by my friend Mike Morrell’s 9th grade science class. It was water rocket launch day so I knew it would be a fun day. Mike’s students have been working on rocket designs and building their rockets for a while. The water rockets are the first phase of the unit. ChemDoodle Mobile Draw chemical structures. View 3D.

Five YouTube Channels for #scichat Nation Posted by Bill Ferriter on Tuesday, 12/10/2013 I don't know about you, but whenever I'm looking to learn something new, one of the first places that I turn is YouTube. The quality of the video content uploaded there every day just plain blows my mind. Not only can I find information on darn near anything, most of the time the content that I am finding is polished better than the video content I find in education-specific video libraries. Here are five YouTube channels that members of #scichat nation are bound to find interesting and/or useful in their daily instruction:

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.
