We’ve been in Christian Kids Explore Earth and Space for awhile, so we’re excited to be moving on to chemistry. It’s always fun to start a new book, isn’t it? At least for awhile. I’m especially excited because I’ve found some fun-looking resources to incorporate as we move through chemistry, so I thought I’d share them with you. Keep in mind, I haven’t used all of these yet, they just look like some fun things we’ll incorporate in our study of chemistry.
First, check out this post on teaching Chemistry to children for some excellent resources.
A few pages I’ve bookmarked (I think from Jimmie’s Squidoo page, but I can’t remember for sure) that look really interesting are:
- this really cool, interactive periodic table
- a blank periodic table for us to fill in
- another nice, interactive periodic table
- the elements, set to music (I even bought some speakers for my laptop, so we can all hear it!)
A couple of books that I’m looking forward to are The Cartoon Guide to Chemistry and Fizz, Bubble & Flash!: Element Explorations & Atom Adventures for Hands-On Science Fun!.
If you have some favorite chemistry resources, I’d love to hear them! We’re just getting started, so now is the perfect time to start saving up book, link, and activity suggestions.
