Living Periodic Table


Chemistry is all around you! It's in the food you eat, the clothes you wear, the sports equipment you use, the medicine you take, the air you breathe-everything you see, touch, taste, or smell. With the addition of "Living Periodic Table" at the RPSEC, students now have the opportunity to observe common objects that represent the elements of the periodic table. Teachers can expose their students to more in-depth exercises that involve biology, general science, physics, and chemistry. These exercises can provide students with a good working knowledge of the elements, symbols, atomic numbers, and groups as they are interrelated. Each Element on the Periodic Table is represented by a symbol. Use the periodic table to look up the symbols for the elements below in order to answer each question.
