Fun Facts about the Periodic Table

If you are looking for an interesting website about the Periodic Table, check out The Periodic Table of Videos.  This is a site from the University of Nottingham.  When you click on an element in the Periodic Table, you are treated to a video clip describing interesting facts about that element.  The only drawback I see is that they use Youtube for their video clips.  If your school district is like mine, Youtube is blocked by an internet filter.

It is a very interesting site.  I am not a chemistry teacher.  I avoided chemistry in school.  However, I loved going through the elements to learn about each one’s properties and uses.

EDIT:  I found a link on their site for those who have Youtube blocked by a filter.
