Salk's Periodic Table

This site offers something much more than just a periodic table, with in-depth details such as who discovered the element, where its name came from, and interesting facts about the element. You can use this handy site even if you teach younger students. Check out their Chem for Kids tab to find interesting information for elementary students. Don't miss the Periodic Table for Videos for class presentations and grading rubrics to round out a complete teaching and assessment package.

"I started teaching at 55. It's never too late. I owned gymnastics schools for 30. It was getting to rough on my body so I went back to college at 50. I love teaching children. What a glorious profession!"
