The Periodic Table of Videos

So today is going to be another whirl wind of posts day.  I am cleaning out my Google Notebook saved sites, hopefully you will find one of these awesome resources helpful for your classroom! What it is: If I had access to the Periodic Table of Videos when I was going through chemistry, my understanding would have exponentially increased!  This site literally looks like a periodic table, when a student clicks on one of the elements, a video opens up that explains the element.  So neat!  The site was created by the University of Nottingham, who is continually updating the videos with the latest and greatest experiments and explanations.  There is a section with extra videos, a collection of science bloopers that are entertaining.   How to integrate The Periodic Table of Videos into the classroom: The Periodic Table of Videos is a great way to introduce the elements to students.  I remember spending hours memorizing the Periodic Table but never really understood the properties of the elements.  This site will help your students get a grasp on exactly what the different elements do.  This is also a great way to bring those elements into your room that aren’t practical or readily available. Use this with your chemistry classes in the computer lab setting or with a projector.   Tips:  The Features section has some extra videos on topics such as experiments and noble gases.   Leave a comment and tell us how you are using The Periodic Table of Videos in your classroom. window.google_render_ad();
