I have had lots of traffic recently on my site for the Periodic Table Battleship. This post goes right along with it . I have to share with you another super fun way to Memorize the Periodic Table This way will help you memorize it 10x faster! (I received a complementary subscription and was paid for my time in writing this post. All thoughts are my own.)
How do you memorize things best? To music? With pictures? Human memory is mostly visual. Mostly when we need to memorize something it is boring and repetitive. It isn’t interesting or visually stimulating at all. However when you activate your visual memory, it suddenly becomes much easier!
How Does Memorize The Periodic Table Work?
Memorize the Periodic Table is a set of video lessons that uses visual memory to help you QUICKLY memorize all 118 elements of the periodic table. You know those fun white board videos where they draw it all in with a black marker? It is like that. They draw (and tell) visual story clues to help with each element. You focus on the pictures and remember the story and it helps you to recall all of the elements so easily!
For example: You start with the periodic table and wrap it around a water hydrant = Hydrogen the first element in the table.
You can watch an example of how the course works with the first video. It really is a lot of fun the way he lays it all out. We were laughing at some of the sill things that happen throughout the videos.
What My Son Thought of Memorize the Periodic Table:
“Memorize The Periodic Table is cool and helpful and works REALLY well. They have silly stories and puns to help you remember them. It’s great!”
Here is a video of him reciting the first 30 elements after about a half hour of watching just 3 of the videos in the series!
Since we already were studying chemistry and the periodic table this year, we were excited for the chance to try this Memorize the Periodic Table course. It did not disappoint us. My son really has enjoyed watching the videos and is so proud of himself for being able to memorize the table! I was learning it pretty well, too (although he is much better at memorizing than I am!). While right now there is really no need for him to have it memorized, he really does enjoy it. So, Why not?! It will benefit him more as he studies upper level chemistry in high school and college. I am certain these mnemonics will stick with him and help him for a long time!
I would love to have courses like this for many different subjects! It is a great technique for memorizing long lists of information. They have a Free basic memorization course as well as some others on the Presidents and the Olympic Cities.
