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.

"There are several reasons that I love My eCoach. The largest one is that it has a locker where I can store what I have created and find it later. I have made a whole bunch of things online and then forgotten where they are and sometimes even that they exist. In My eCoach I can go to the Locker and find the projects that I made in the past and am sometimes surprised at what I find!

I have also met long-term friends through My eCoach who I communicate with in other ways. I know I have not used most of My eCoach to its capacity and it is really amazing the options that it does give you."
