This year is the first time I’ve taught chemistry. I’ve avoided it until now. It’s been okay though. There are tons of experiments out there and we’re getting it. I finally have a picture of the periodic table lapbook pieces I made. You can click on it to see it bigger. My one son holds them in a lapbook. My daughter doesn’t use the pockets and glues the pieces onto notebooking pages labeled with the group name for that element. My other son uses this wall chart. It doesn’t look exactly like a table, but he’s lined up the periods and groups. My 6 year old just puts them anywhere. You can download the lapbook on the Free Stuff! page.

The best site for learning about the elements is Chem4kids. You can not only learn about but for each one, hear it pronounced and see pictures of where you can find it in your world. For older kids there is a site with videos on each element.

While building my free curriculum, I’ve decided to include a video of each experiment in case you can’t do it yourself for lack of supplies, though all are pretty simple to get. We managed to get hydrogen peroxide from a local hairdresser, when she finally realized what we were asking for, and we made elephant toothpaste 🙂

Sorry, that’s all my camera allows for in terms of video. BTW, the videos in the curriculum are not like this. They are better, not my own, and all embedded so your kids are never sent to youtube to see the comments :S

Here’s the video from the curriculum, if you want to learn to make it yourself:

Alright folks, hi, hi, hi, ho it’s off to work I go. 🙂
