Chemistry for kids with a fun periodic table!
Our Periodic Table Hop is a great way to introduce kids to chemistry. Young scientists who are getting to know the periodic table will have lots of fun with the activities possible on this floor mat. Likewise, teachers can keep the periodic table for kids simple and engaging with movement.
The Periodic Table Hop includes all 118 elements and their atomic numbers, symbols, and atomic mass. With kinesthetic activities on this large, bright mat, students will excel at identifying any element. Additionally, this mat is color-coded, so that students will be able to easily identify alkali metals, alkaline earth metals, transition metals, post-transition metals, metalloids, nonmetals, halogens, noble gases, lanthanides, and actinides.
Make periodic table activities energetic and hands-on! This periodic table is meant for kids and encourages play-based learning. Use this mat with chemistry students in 5th grade, middle school, or even high school. Older students will like the unique activities just as much as younger ones!
