Periodic Table of the Elements charts, Montessori RD

This is our favorite periodic table of the elements, which comes with a mute chart. It is large, aesthetic (glossy), made with simple colors. It includes a few groups such as alkali metals, nonmetals, noble gases, transition metals…

Periodic Table with workable chart

Since the pieces are loose, it would be a good idea to get sticky magnets for children to connect pieces on the mute chart. If you have a young child around like me, it’s probably safer not to add those sticky magnets.

How we stored the charts on the wall

Since we are limited in space, I hung the charts on the wall, slightly behind the science shelf. I put the pieces on a Ziploc bag. The children found them conveniently available, and used them quite a few times in parallel with their other works on building atoms, and molecule models. They also enjoyed 5 sets of “Who am I?” cards from ETC Montessori, along with the work on Elements in Action from Big Picture Science.
