Chemistry was a very scary lesson for many students when I was in high school. We were just feed with so many symbols in a short time using a text book and then we had to go for a test. It was a very horrible nightmare for having to do some word problems and atomic/molecular equations without knowing what they are. My children are very lucky since they have been introduced to chemistry in their early ages. As I wrote in our list of curriculum this year, my son uses Exploring Creation with Chemistry and Physics (Young Explorer Series) in his 6th Grade at the moment.
Thinking about teaching and accompanying my son chemistry in considered early age in our country is very worrying, but I have been very lucky to meet Teresa Bondora in a social media. She is a very encouraging and inspiring lady. You might visit her site at How to Teach Science. How I thank her very much. She opened my eyes that getting kids love learning elements in the periodic table. I am very excited to be able to solve my problem and to inform this great news to my readers. I am very honoured to get The Periodic Table of Elements Coloring Book for a review.
Well, I would like to let you know how we have used The Periodic Table of Elements Coloring Book in our science norebooking activities. First of all, here is my son's Science notebooking page table of content in his binder. I put it in the very front page of the binder to ease us looking up for certain work. We have 7 sections for the binder that we use to support the science lessons.
Element Study has been part of the Science Notebooking page binder since we love The Periodic Table of Elements Coloring Book. We pick any element randomly as soon as we hear the names. I make some copies for personal purposes.
We read together the simple information at the back of the element coloring page. We are very happy with the short, easy, and interesting explanation for each of the element in the periodic table. Kids can understand the sentences easily as they are related with real life examples. Of course I try to make them as real as possible too.
Then, kids continue coloring the pictures related to the elements. The Hydrogen page has a picture of water showing how hydrogen is part of a water molecule. There is also a picture of volcano as it is the source of hydrogen. As Hydrogen can be made by human as steam, there is a steam train in the picture. The burning ability of hydrogen is also unbearable so that there is the image of rocket that use hydrogen as part of its combustion. Therefore, the memory about hydrogen in real world will stick better in their mind.
We combine the element coloring pages with a page of our Basic Science Notebooking Pages and Graphic Organizers. The information page at the back of the coloring page is incidentally very useful for our Elements in the Periodic Table notebooking page.
For my beloved readers, I would like to give away the Element in the Periodic Table notebooking page by filling fill in the form bellow. This page is a part of our Basic Science Notebooking Pages and Graphic Organizers.
