Dynamic Periodic Table
What is it: The Dynamic Periodic Table is just that. It is an interactive Periodic Table that allows students to select an element and choose to view photos, videos or general information about that element. I wish I would have had this when I taught 8th Grade. You can customize the page so that you can view the Periodic Table by the atomic symbol, the electrons in each shell, an expanded view or the atomic mass. It also allows you to view various properties such as the boiling and melting point of elements. I especially like the photos and videos. Student typically discuss elements without ever seeing what it looks like. A great resource to supplement your learning experiences. Alkali metals + water = Fun!
