Note: Due to the pandemic and resultant school closings, any new remote learning
sites will be added on the Home Page. "Regular" new sites will still be added here.

    It's finally done. Now you can make your own giant periodic table with these infographics!


    Compound Interest
    The International Year of the Periodic Table might be over, but you can still download
    all of the #IYPT2019 graphics, made with the Royal Society of Chemistry, on the site here:

    https://www.compoundchem.com/iypt2019elements/

    or from the RSC here.

    If you followed the series through 2019, I hope you enjoyed it and learned something new
    and interesting about some of the elements. I'd still love to see what you do with the graphics,
    so if you're making a display or using them in some other way, please do share!

    Robyn Harvey: "We made a wall of these in one of our high school science labs in Tamworth,
    Australia. It looks fantastic! Will post a photo when we go back to school when we print and
    laminate the last few elements as we started holidays before the last elements were sent out.
    The students from Years 7-12 really enjoyed seeing it take shape all year.
    It’s a permanent fixture now."
    (copied from CI's FB page) Good Idea!

    Hi, kids! I'm Dakota! I am the newest Brittany here at
    Good Sites for Kids! I'm a retired hunter and a mama.
    My fur-sister Lily and I are American Bittanies and are
    both South Dakota natives. When we're not helping out
    on the site, we patrol the outdoors, chase rabbits and
    squirrels, woof at kids at the schoolyard, rack out on
    the beds, ask for treats, and hang out with our peeps!
