Right now, we are beginning to unearth the awesomeness that is the periodic table in my science classroom. While perusing for lesson ideas and tech-driven resources, I came across these pretty nifty tables that make learning about the elements more interactive and engaging.
- TED-Ed Periodic Table
Probably my favorite so far just because of the learning potential! The team at Periodic Videos has created a TED-Ed lesson for every element of the periodic table. That means that no matter what element you are interested in, there is a 5-10 minute video lesson available right away. How cool is that?
- Dynamic Periodic Table
This one is a little less visually appealing but just as link heavy. Each element here hyperlinks and pops-up a window on the element’s wikipedia page for quick fact-finding and research.
- Photographic Periodic Table
This table is totally unique and great for visual learners. Each element here features a photo of the element in its natural state, and clicking on the elements results in a photo dictionary of uses and examples of the element! Want to know what polonium is actually used for? This will tell you!
- Royal Society of Chemistry Periodic Table
This table is pretty, color-coded, and full of information. Each element links out to a sub-page that has all the essentials neatly organized for quick and easy referencing.
- Periodic Table of Videos
Similar to the TED version, this table links to videos. Rather than lessons, however, these videos are often labs, experiments, and demonstrations.
