Idea Bank: Presidential “Periodic Table”

The Science Teacher—September 2008

The Presidential “Periodic Table” is an engaging activity that encourages high school chemistry students to match the names of the elements with their chemical symbols in order to spell out the names of the 43 U.S. presidents. By completing the puzzle, students reinforce their knowledge of both chemical elements and the names of the American presidents in chronological order.
