Periodic Table: Elements & their real world use

Posted by SalesianLibrary on March 22, 2010

I found this really interesting resource through Bright Ideas, a blog run by the School Library Association of Victoria. It’s a periodic table containing all of the elements but what’s really interesting is that it explains how each element is used in the real world.

So you can see for example, that Hydrogen is used in rocket fuel, vehicle fuel and ammonia. It brings a new meaning to learning the periodic table and may make learning it a whole lot more interesting for some students!

      If you click on the picture of the periodic table it brings up a large version of it – you can then copy and paste this into either Word or Publisher and print it off.
