Is there such a thing as chemistry for kids? You bet! And it can be so much fun.
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. We have some cool books, and activities as well as some great chemistry experiments that kids love.
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.
Cool Chemistry Experiments and Activities:
We have dome some fun chemistry experiments and activities over the years. Check some of these out to get the ideas for your chemistry lesson going. These are simple chemistry ideas that you can do from home or (most of them) in a classroom. There are some simple chemical reactions as well as some that are a little more complex, but kids love them all!
We also have a bunch of books on chemistry that he enjoys reading. Here are the ones we have and enjoy. . .
