This year in our homeschool, my 4th grader is studying chemistry. He is really enjoying it and learning a lot. I am using the Noeo Chemistry curriculum and it is more of a self-guided study, which I love! So, we have collected some fun Chemistry learning things this year. I thought today I would share some of those fun resources for teaching chemistry to kids. I have also made some Chemical Compound Printable Cards to share with you all!
One simple way to help kids learn the elements is to print out a free Periodic Table and make it into a puzzle for your kids to put back together. This has been good practice for my son.
Have you seen my Periodic Table Battleship post? If not, that’s a REALLY fun one! Check it out.
We also have a bunch of books on chemistry that he enjoys reading. Here are the ones we have and enjoy. . .

We don’t have these Periodic Table Playing Cards, but I am thinking they would be a great one to get soon! Don’t they look neat?
This Periodic Table Tile Set is on my wish list…
I made a pretty cool set of Printable Chemical Compound Cards. They are a great thing to use to practice the compounds with your kids. It includes 19 different chemical compounds!
