Tried and True: Our class periodic table

by: Sarah Young

To facilitate discussions centered on the topic of chemistry, students can create a classroom periodic table. In order to accomplish this task, they research elements in the periodic table using various media (textbooks, Internet), and then create a neat, colorful, and creative poster. The final product—The Class Periodic Table—is prominently displayed in the classroom and utilized throughout the school year.
