There are lots of ways to help children learn about the periodic table. Try an activity, play a game - follow up with a worksheet and you will be on your way!

Learning about the periodic table doesn't have to be a drag!

Kids love to get involved, so these ideas include lots of hands on activities for you to try. When they are having fun, you can be sure they are learning.
