NOVA Elements

If you are planning a chemistry unit this year, this is the site for you.  NOVA Elements is an interactive tool from our favorite science show, NOVA ScienceNow.  Last fall, when we were studying chemistry, the NOVA episode “Hunting the Elements” came out.  We watched it and loved it!  It’s such a great, in-depth and engaging look at the Periodic Table.  Now, they have added this interactive site that allows you to watch the show, play around with an interactive Periodic Table, make atoms and elements, and construct elements and molecules found in everyday objects.  It’s a great addition to the original show and makes a fantastic addition to any chemistry unit.  Suitable for upper elementary through high school and free.
