Unofficial Mom of the Year nominee Karyn Tripp posted her amazing integration of the Periodic Table into a Battleship style game on Teach Beside Me.
This game can be played even by kids who know nothing about the Periodic Table Yet. My 8-year-old daughter has not studied any chemistry yet, but really enjoyed this one.
How to Make the Periodic Table Battleship Game:
To make the game, print out 4 copies of the Periodic Table. I like the colored ones, but it isn’t necessary. I found a great one from Science Notes. Then, along the left side of the table, I labeled the rows alphabetically. They already have row numbers. I laminated mine to make it re-usable. We used two file folders and hooked them together at the top with a jumbo paperclip. Attach two of the periodic tables in with that paper clip as well. Then lay the other two periodic tables down on the table in the folder.
